David Mellor


If you've passed your Advanced Driving Test in the last 20 years or so with the West Pennine Group, then without doubt the certificate that was presented to you would have been produced by David Mellor.


After many many years of producing the West Pennine Group's Test Pass Certificates, David Mellor has decided to call it a day.


David has hand written, in his beautiful calligraphy,  hundreds of certificates over the years.


We will be sorry to see the end of this West Pennine tradition.


David, on behalf of the group, we wish you all the very best for the future and the biggest thank you for all your work with the group over the years.

Thank you Lorraine for your 20 years of commitment to the group.


           Allan Thorne Award 2017

Well, last year I was very surprised to win this award for the second time, imagine how I felt when I learnt that I had won it for a third year. I would like to give a great big thank you to everyone who voted for me. It must have been a very difficult decision to make as there are many others in the group who are just as worthy as me and I thank you all for the support and encouragement shown to me over the last year.


I was very surprised to learn that I had won the Allan Thorne trophy again, as there are many people within the group who are just as worthy of winning this trophy. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for me, it is very much appreciated.


The West Pennine Group have enjoyed the facilities at the Clayton Green for a number of years and with that in mind it would only be courtious for us to support them all year round for our own personal social evenings and events.
