Welcome to the site of the North Wiltshire & Gloucestershire Area of the British Driving Society



I Am writing to advise you all that Karina has decided to step down from being our new Area Commissioner for personal reasons with immediate effect, which leaves no one at the helm so to speak! This is far from being an ideal situation at the beginning of the Spring and a new year of driving when everyone is looking forward to getting out and joining in with activities. I have therefore agreed to try and help the BDS Council to fill this post as soon as possible. I have said I will ensure that what is already planned happens,  but I do not want to do more, other than support anyone who may come forward.  



You will see in the following Calendar section that some events have been planned for the coming year. There will be just three Area Shows this year, and it was intended that they would include a FUN DAY- this could include cones, a Treasure Hunt, long reining and anything else we can think of however someone or a group of friends needs to organise and run this on the Day.  I will do everything else regarding any admin etc. The first of these is on Sunday May 26th at Worcester Lodge on the Badminton Estate. There is plenty of space so if you have any ideas, please let me know as soon as possible as I would like to include it in the schedules I am currently preparing. The Shows are the main means of raising funds for the Area, which will allow us to put on some reasonably priced training around the Area. Karen Harvey the Oxfordshire AC and I will be organising our 14th BDS TREC at Eynsham Park, with hopefully no clashes in dates, so please put this in your diary. The schedule is on both the Main BDS web site and this one.

PIease, please will you all therefore consider whether you would be prepared to take on being the next Area Commissioner of our Area either as either an individual or jointly with a friend. I be contacted on Or you can ‘phone me on 01793 770862 for a chat.  It can be very rewarding, I thoroughly enjoyed my years, it is voluntary, but there is usually enough funds surplus from events to cover basic out of pocket expenses with in reason.  You need to have access to the internet since most communications are now done in this way- however if it was a shared appointment then as long as one has access that is fine. The Area’s email address can be transferred so it will not interfere with your own personal email address.

This is an opportunity for you to keep our Area going forward with new ideas but embracing all the best traditions of OUR Society.   PLEASE HELP!



Happy driving, be seen and be safe.
