All Weather Driving

I’ve written this article during Lockdown due to driving lessons constantly being cancelled. I hope many will find it useful (though it is a bit of a tome) particularly during these cold, winter days we are having at the time of writing. The article is split into the three skills that cover the problems thatContinue reading “All Weather Driving”

Testing Phil Trow on Radio Manchester

I had another phone call from Radio Manchester again, asking me to talk about how the business was going during Covid and (the best bit) to set Phil 4 questions on driving.

In the Video ‘ We’ll be together again’

The local ‘4 Heatons Traders Association’ came up with this gem ( I’m on at the end, looking a tad self conscious), presumably to keep us occupied during the Lockdown. It’s tons better than I thought it would be and, the music’s grown on me too! Great fun and I want to do another oneContinue reading “In the Video ‘ We’ll be together again’”

On the Radio again / Virtual Driving Lesson

I was half snoozing / listening along to the Today programme on Radio 4 recently when my ears pricked up at a request for small business owners to phone in and tell how they were adapting during Lockdown. Having done radio a few times, I couldn’t resist the lure of publicity and, yes, I amContinue reading “On the Radio again / Virtual Driving Lesson”
