The Newark coach operator Travel Wright aka Wright & Sons is to cease operating in early April. Apparently the business is solvent but the family want to retire and have been unsuccessful in finding a buyer.  The firm is probably unknown to most Nottingham folk but was started in 1926 and has operated the Newark - Ollerton service since  then as well as tours, private hire etc. They also operate the Newark - Collingham service.  The demise of Wrights will leave Marshalls of Sutton-on-Trent as the only local operator apart from the one-coach Emjay Tours and Stagecoach but even they no longer have a depot in Newark.
