Harold Burke, sales director at just for groups!, said: “It is great to have Maureen and David joining our sales team. We were very impressed with their dedication to their group organiser clients.

“Even when they had been made redundant and were owed wages, they carried on, working around the clock to make sure their customers were going to be looked after by someone and their holidays would go ahead as planned.

“Such dedication is commendable and we are delighted that they have agreed to join us.”


David and Maureen have joined as group sales development managers, and Adele is group sales executive.

Adele has joined from Kingswood Learning & Leisure Group, which is based in Norwich, where she had a similar role selling group holidays.

David and Maureen both worked at Bowen’s for about 11 years until it went into administration in October.

He was group travel sales executive, and her role was group travel sales manager for the southern division.

Now, David is based at home in Somerset, while Maureen will divide her time between her home in Northampton and the just for groups! office in Norwich.


Harold added: “The bonus of having three new staff at just for groups! means we can continue to generate new business, and we will also be able to accelerate our plans to work with more travel agents on ‘direct by coach’ departures and private groups.”
