Chair's update

Posted on 07/02/24 |

We have got off to a good start this year on a number of fronts. Four Associates have passed the Advanced test, three have joined us and two of our Observers have obtained high level observing and driving qualifications. The high driving and observing standards we set ourselves are evidenced by these achievements. We also have a new trainee Observer! Alison Jones  passed the advanced test in January and has decided to join the Observer team. Thank you Alison for supporting the Group in this way.

We offer to any Group member or friend a driving check by one of our Observers. You may be feeling less confident with your driving than when you once were so give your driving an annual MOT as well as your car! It will be completely confidential. Your  Observer will not share their observations of your driving with anyone else.  We are here to help you as much as our Associates.

There are some things you can do for yourself to remind you what advanced driving is all about. Take a look at our driving tips section on the website or the Reg Local videos on YouTube which are excellent.

We are also doing a lot on the publicity front with our newly formed Publicity and Recruitment (P&R)team doing remarkedly well over such a short period. Did you see our advert in the motoring section of the St. Helens Star in December?  Let me know if you did. If you have ideas about how we could promote the Group then please get in touch. Our P&R team could explore your ideas. All you need do is provide them. We are particularly keen to work other charitable organisations or businesses. 

Our AGM will be on Thursday 6th June at the Town Hall, 7.45pm prompt start rather than the usual 8pm start. This will give us a little more social time after the AGM and talk. So, make a note now in your calendars / diaries.
