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



welcome to the North Wiltshire and Gloucestershire Area website. This dedicated to this Area – YOUR Area, please feel free to send in news, contributions and photos. Remember our web address is now But this can also be accessed off the main BDS website. Please remember your membership WAS due on January 1st and non-renewal will mean that you cannot take part in any BDS organised event neither do you have Third party Cover to drive unless you also have cover with a separate company. REMEMBER this still will not entitle you to attend BDS events.  Please also check the main BDS Web site for any news of other nearby Areas and information that may affect you.


The new Heritage Driving class was added to the Area Spring Show  at Worcester Lodge, it was enjoyed very much so has been added to the Summer Show, please come and support it. Alison Dunevein- Gordon and friends have worked very hard to put on something that is different and which is more than just cones. It also makes a taster for anyone who may be thinking of eventually try full blown Attelage. The main Show ring provides lots of qualifiers for Osborne Refrigeration and Victoria Foods and we have pleasure in welcoming Mike King in his first year as a Judge.

Please will you all 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!

Take care and happy safe driving.




Happy driving, be seen and be safe.
