Keep an eye on this website link for the Driving Addington 2017 schedule –


The annual Regional meetings for English Area Commissioners & other BDS officials have been taking place over the last few weeks, with the last one scheduled for the 22nd April.

Chaired by AC`s Chairman Linda Swain, each meeting this year has also been attended by the BDS Chairman Angela Sixsmith so those attending have been able to ask direct questions and get direct answers.

Some very interesting ideas have been received, which Council will be considering for action.
Any unanswered questions and a resume of all these meetings will be sent out to Officials as soon as possible after the last meeting.

Members need to ask their own AC if they attended and what was up for discussion.

Sir John Miller Leased Traditional Vehicles

Could a BDS Member, in either the Congleton area of Cheshire or in the vicinity of Oxford, store a two-wheeled gig in the short term ?

These 2 vehicles are no longer required on lease and storage space is being lost.

Perhaps other BDS members would like to have the opportunity to use one of these lovely historic traditional vehicles.

Please email the BDS Office with either offers of help.
