A north Northumberland taxi driver is retiring this week, but his firm is set to continue under new ownership, meaning business as usual.

Ronald Hood, the proprietor of Ron’s Taxis, based at Weetwood Avenue in Wooler, is retiring tomorrow.

Ron would like to sincerely thank all his customers, colleagues and friends.

“It has been a great pleasure to be of service over the past 15 years,” he said.

However, Ron’s Taxis will continue as a taxi firm and will be run by Iain Moffat, of Station Road, Wooler, as the new proprietor.

Customers should call either 01668 281281 or the mobile number – 07778 543907 – for business as usual.

The firm has eight, seven, six and four-passenger vehicles available.
