Boon's of Boreham

In 1939 Robert Boon moved to Boreham to take over the local bakery, however, in 1944 the bakery business was sold to the Co-op and Robert started a taxi service.

From here the business progressed into coach hire, and along with his son, Hector, he established Boon's Coaches.

The business grew steadily, eventually becoming one of the leading fleets in the area, with a number of ex-service double-deckers, used for school contracts, and an impressive line-up of top-of-the-range Setra coaches for private hire. By this time, Robert had passed away and Hector's son, Mark, had joined him in the family business.

In 1993, Boreham born, Suzanne Evans, established Boon's Calibre Travel, alongside Boon's Coaches, to provide a selection of quality holidays, short breaks and day excursions by coach. The new business meant that a complete range of coaching services could now be offered by the Boon's brand.

Today, the coach depot in Church Road has been demolished, to make way for Boon's Close, and Boon's Coaches no longer exists; sadly, Hector died in 1996 and Mark in 2012.

However, the Boon's name is still prominent in the coach industry though award-winning Boon's Calibre Travel, who continue to provide holidays, short breaks, day excursions and coach hire for local residents and are proud to uphold the Boon's reputation for quality and service.
