It's almost here. 

Thewesterngroup annual PR Driving Day 2016 is lining up to be one of the best with registrations ahead of previous years and a mouthwatering array of automobiles allocated by manufacturers.

While DD2016 is a day for the industry PRs to get their hands on their competitors products, do some comparisons and network with the  group's members, this year will also give the writers opportunities to catch up with those models which have alluded them in the last few months. 

The highly successful driving day has been running through four decades and has a simple formula and that remains the same because it works very well, so please remember to bring your driving licence if you want to experience a truly memorable event.

You should have had your full joining instructions by now but if you haven't chase up with Alyson Marlow and if you are leaving it to the last moment to apply, now is your chance using the link below. 

Once again we will be raising money for worthy charitable causes and hope you will be bringing donations for the raffle by clearing out your "goodies cupboard" and even bringing old fashioned folding notes for the tickets from our Maxine "enforcer" Ashford.

Kia is holding a regional driving day for group members and local non-group members based in Bath on 7 June and we are very grateful to Steve, Carly and the Kia crew for their continuing support which makes administering the driving day much easier.
