October 2011

Welcome to the latest edition of the Ffestiniog Travel Newsletter, we have a bumper issue for you this time, a new member of staff has joined the team, we have an improved web presence, a new brochure and some special offers for you.

Welcome to the team!

Michelle Hawes joined the team in June and has already made her mark in the ticketing department; concentrating her efforts on UK rail tickets she has also been learning the complexities of the European ticketing systems. Michelle explains “I enjoy the varied work involved with ticketing, two days are never the same and each customer has their own tale to tell of where and why they are going to such differing places.” Why not call Michelle today on 01766 772040 or email michelle.hawes@ffestiniogtravel.co.uk and she can assist you with your travel requirements.
