Four Girls



The business was started by Llewelyn and Barbara Davies. They had four daughters and therefore Llewelyn decided to call the business 'Four Girls'. The first full size bus to be purchased in 1978 was a Bedford VAM70 - 45 seater Duple Viceroy coach and it was initially used to convey workers to the Shotton steelworks.  By 1984 some 10 vehicles were in the fleet and route work was established between Mold, Wrexham and Chester. Of the 'four' daughters only two joined the business – Carolyn and Elaine both having become qualified drivers. At one stage Llewelyn, Barbara, Carolyn and Elaine were joint holders of the operating licence. After the unfortunate death of Llewelyn in 1997 the business was very much in the hands of Carolyn and Elaine and their husbands. Carolyn and Elaine became the holders of the operating licence.  The main work was mainly private hire and school contracts and the fleet was predominately Volvo with a distinctive and smart blue livery.

Unfortunately due to a dispute between the partners the business ceased trading May 2016.

The table below gives a list of all recorded vehicles known to have been with this operator.  I am indebted to David Donati for his dedicated work in compiling this data and enabling me to present it.

In the right hand column - where available - there is a link to a photograph of the vehicle.  The photo will open in a new window.  Links in CAPITAL LETTERS suggest the vehicle is seen when with the operator.

The column 'Pre HISTORY' shows information about the vehicle before joining the fleet including any re-registrations.  The column 'Post HISTORY' shows information about when the vehicle left the fleet and any known information of the subsequent history after the vehicle left the fleet.

For those who would wish to see the chassis and body numbers - these are to be found on the right hand side of the table below. You may need to scroll to the bottom of the page and then scroll the page to the right.
