Tom Morgan, group commercial director at trentbarton, said: “Due to the coronavirus pandemic it’s going to be a very different Christmas and New Year’s

Eve festive period.

“We expect there will be significant restrictions in place affecting hospitality venues and many people will be focused on spending Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day with their family groups at home.

“But between Christmas and New Year our customers will need to travel for reasons including work and for shopping, so we will be providing a reduced, but

still comprehensive service.

“And to help patients and health workers get to Derby Royal Infirmary our royal derby service will continue to provide its vital service.

“I would like to thank our wonderful drivers and our support teams for being there for our customers when they need them, all through a tumultuous 2020 and as we approach what we all hope will be a brighter 2021.”
