To all my wonderful clients
This is to inform you that, as of Friday 29th November, I am retiring due to ill health. As many of you are already aware, I suffer with a condition that affects my breathing and I have battled against Doctor’s recommendations for the past 4 years. This isn’t a decision I’ve taken lightly, and it saddens me that my time running Avista Travel has come to an end. However, it has started to impact my family life and so I have had to come to this conclusion.
Please be assured that all future bookings and monies are fully protected under the Co-op Travel Consortium. They have selected a local fellow member to manage the Avista Travel bookings, the appointed member, The Departure Lounge Clitheroe, will be in touch soon to introduce themselves. I am happy to tell you that both Sam and Briony have secured new positions with The Departure Lounge and will continue to be based at 3 Castle Street. The telephone number will also remain the same – 01200 422975.
As a team we are proud of the service we have offered you, our valued clients, and I know this will continue with the new Departure Lounge team. Over the years many of you have become more than just customers, and I will personally miss you all dearly. I hope to see some of our local customers, in and around Clitheroe.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your continued support over the past seven years whilst the business has been under my ownership. If you need any assistance with your existing booking, or to make a new reservation, please do not hesitate to contact Sam, Briony and the new Departure Lounge team.
