Anthony Carver-Smith, NCT Marketing Manager commented: “Our Boxing Day buses have proven very popular and in their fifth year of operating, we’re delighted to add two additional services to the Boxing Day timetable which fill the gaps many customers asked us to look at last year”. He continued, “Boxing Day is an important day for the Sales, but it’s also an important day for our employees to be able to spend time with their family and friends and we thank our employees who have volunteered to work on Boxing Day to provide our biggest network to date”.
