Anthony's Travel winners of community award...

Held in the magnificent venue of Chester Cathedral on Friday 3rd October with a packed audience of some of Cheshire's most influential businesses , professionals and hosted by ITV's Lucy Meacock  the judges spent over eighty hours selecting worthy winners in ten award categories. Andy Phelan, Business Development Director, Trinity Mirror Cheshire & North Wales said, "Trinity Mirror Cheshire was exceptionally proud to host to our annual Business Awards once again and be able to salute both the companies and the people who have helped increase prosperity and confidence in the Cheshire region."  In one of the most competitive awards, the judges said, "'Anthony's Travel demonstrated an amazing amount of community based activity across a range of organisations and charities. It was a really strong entry and they have really gone the extra mile."  Richard Bamber, Partner of Anthony's Travel commented, "its amazing that a company my father, Tony,  founded with one minicoach in 1985 has been deemed worthy of such an honour.  We are very proud of our routes within Halton and Cheshire and our family ethos has always been to help others which has been the foundation of our business. Each one of the wide selection of community partnerships we believe in and don't simply pay lip service; hopefully what we have done as a small company with limited resources can inspire other small businesses to make a difference in the community they trade in." This is second time that Anthony's Travel have received an honour for their work within the community, in March 2012 Anthonys received the prestigious Chester High Sheriffs Award for Corporate Social Responsibility.

Michelin approved, this product is a cost effective solution for reducing downtime and has the potential to help avoid fatal incidents as a result of wheel loss from a vehicle. The system alerts the driver of any impending danger and accurately identifies the precie wheel that is loosening.  This is a technology focused solution to a historical safety problem.
