The first vehicle to be sold is Dennis 'R' series AE02VUY to Norfolk Coachways. It left for pastures new today. New to Neneway Coaches as RB02NWY it joined Grettons in 2018 and was re-registered to AE02VUY.

Of the remaining 8 coaches, 6 have been provisionally sold or on reserve. However no more will leave the fleet until 4th April.

In readiness for the forthcoming sales, Van Hool bodied Scania L94IB T9AOL has been re-registered T718VAV. T9AOL is to be retained by one of the Gretton family. However it is expected that VUN678 will be sold complete with private plate.

Grettons of Peterborough has now ceased trading, It's date brought forward as a result of Covid-19. Whilst most vehicles had attracted new owners once the company finished, some of these have given back-word as a result of the current climate. I can confirm VUN678 is now with Fowlers Travel, Holbeach Drove and that J30TRU is going for scrap. It was expected that C & G Coaches, Chatteris were to take two, but I am not sure whether that is still happening. As far as I know, the remainder remain unsold.
