Friday 29th June

Hello and welcome to Walkers SOM.

Well what's been happening; apart from having a non-existing summer which is fairly depressing in it's self and coupled with the fact that the day's are getting shorter again, we've not much to be excited about, expecially as we're also out of the football!  Oh well I suppose we have the tennis at least; come on Murray!  Our Angie is at Wimbeldon today and tomorrow, lucky lady managed to get tickets for two days, hopefully she will bring the players some luck too!

Other things that have been happening in the office recently; I went to Ascot, ladies day I hear you say, alas no, just normal!  But was very lucky in regards to the weather even though I didn't win a thing and didn't have to talk about driving lessons, plus I saw the Queen! 

Millie is off to Legoland on Monday - she's taking her grandchildren (I think she secretly wants to go on all the rides!).
Karen - Has been out and about up town watching The Sunshine Boys she has some secret emails where she gets free tickets to everything and anything, very jealous. 
Adam has been attending various weddings all over the world but is now safely back at home, where he belongs at

Martin Walker is over from  Israel heading up our driving lesson promotions in the wonderful Whitgift centre along with our regular Sally.  We would also like to welcome our new found memeber to the team Max, and hopefully another new recruit...Jamie.  They will be Croydon Centrale for the whole of this week, so if you are passing and see a Walkers sign stop and say 'hi', or i fyou have any questions regarding your theory test, practical test, driving lessons or just driving in general they will be more than willing to help.  They love a little chat! 

In regards to our driving instructors we would like to welcome Tony F who is teaching manual, the lovely Richard (who has somehow got away with having his 'mugshot' taken) and Mason will both be offering their services to the automatic leaner driving community.


 Don't forget we offer Pass Plus lessons and Motorway driving lessons so if this is something you would like to know more about please call us on the office number and one of us will be more than happy to go through the options avaiable - 0208 466 6699.

Congratulations to David D's pupil the lovely Lana who passed her manual driving test, and Ian C's pupil's Joyce and Danielle!!!

Any way good weekend to all!

P.S we are still offering our fabulously priced first five lessons on manual for £80 and automatic priced at £90.

Happy and safe driving to you all, if are interested in Passed Plus or Motorway Lessons please don't hesitate to contact us on 0208 466 66 88 and one of us lovely receiptionists' will be able to help you.

Driving topics of discussion this week have been what bad driving habits we have gained since passing our test, the most common being crossing your hands when turning the wheel.
The other topic was; when parrell parking can you do both ways, or are you like me and can only do when I am furthest away from the curb??!!  Let us know what your bad habits are, what manouevre do you find hardest?

This week our promotional staff; Sally and Max, have been hard at it in the wind, rain and sun speaking to you all about driving lessons and hopefully been able to answer some of your questions/queries in regards to driving.  They were in Bexleyheath Thursday, Woolwich today and you can catch them tomorrow in Catford.

Hope you all have a wonderfull weekend, fingers crossed that the weather cheers up; remeber if you're a football fan England are planning tonight!
Walkers Receptionist.
