Information regarding Brunswick Cares ceasing to trade
At the beginning of this week (9th August 2021) we received notification from one of our largest operators, Brunswick Cars, that following the retirement of the proprietor they have decided to cease operating from the 31st August 2021.
This was totally unexpected, beyond our control and also in breach of their contractual obligations. However, please be assured that Cognus and LBS are working together to manage the situation and transport will be arranged for all the affected families before the start of the new term. We will provide an update to everyone by the end of next week, no later than the 20th August 2021 and please rest assured we are doing everything we can to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
This is affecting a small number of families who we have been in touch with. If you have not been contacted your transport is unaffected.
