Very useful meeting this afternoon with leading Southborough residents. Subject: driving schools! Apparently there are 90 of them operating in the Southborough area. I saw 5 separate ones in as many minutes on my way home.
It would be greatly appreciated all round if there could be an agreed code of conduct on these operations. The attraction is the width of the roads and the proximity of the Test Centre in Douglas Road.

Former teacher of History at St. Brendan's College Bristol and Head of History and Politics at the London Oratory School.
