Congratulations to Susan Luckhurst who has just qualified as a MiDAS assessor and trainer.
MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme and is administered by the Community Transport Association. The scheme provides a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers and has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses. Susan has been with us a number of years as an experienced volunteer driver and is now available to train other volunteer minibus drivers free of charge.
Does your organisation or community group have the need to hire a minibus for trips out and social or educational purposes?
We cover Shildon, Newton Aycliffe and the surrounding villages.
Why not get in touch to find out about affiliating with us and nominate a driver to be trained?

What is ParkPlay?
ParkPlay is an opportunity for you to come along and join in some fun games and activities. All games are designed to be fun and engaging for children and adults.
Do adults have to join in?
The idea of ParkPlay is to give families the opportunity to build relationships through the power of play. As a playleader I love seeing parents/aunties/uncles/brothers/sisters/nanas/granddads playing with the children but this is not a must!
How much does ParkPlay cost?
ParkPlay is absolutely FREE and will never cost a penny for anyone wishing to take part.
If you have any questions about what it is please don’t hesitate to drop me or the parkplay page a message.
Support a fantastic opportunity and initiative in your hometown. Without engagement and support unfortunately things like this do not continue so come and join our amazing group and get your Saturday mornings off to an active and fun start!
