We are Bridgette and Michael, the proud owners of Driving Miss Daisy Newmarket. With over 40 years of marriage, three wonderful daughters, and seven cherished grandchildren, family and community are at the heart of everything we do.

Our journey with Driving Miss Daisy began when our dear friends, Paul & Ada Nuth, discovered the service during their holiday in New Zealand. Intrigued by the concept, Paul took the initiative to invite the founders of Driving Miss Daisy New Zealand, Jack & Mel, to the UK to explore the possibility of launching the service here. We were privileged to be invited to the meeting and quickly realised that this service would be a perfect fit for the Newmarket community.

In the Autumn of 2015, we decided to invest in a Driving Miss Daisy franchise. Since then, we have been dedicated to providing a thriving driving and companion service tailored to the needs of elderly and vulnerable individuals in our area. Our services extend beyond just transportation; we offer companionship and support, assisting our clients with trips to medical appointments, social events, and more.

We understand the importance of accessible transport for those with mobility challenges, and we are proud to offer vehicles that can accommodate wheelchairs and other mobility aids. Companionship is a fundamental aspect of the Driving Miss Daisy experience. Our companion drivers are not only trained to provide safe and reliable transportation but also to offer a friendly face and a listening ear during the journey. We believe that the simple act of companionship can make a world of difference in the lives of our clients, providing them with comfort, reassurance, and a sense of belonging.

Driving Miss Daisy Newmarket is more than just a transportation service; it’s a family-owned business dedicated to serving the community with compassion, integrity, and respect. With our wheelchair-accessible vehicles, companion drivers, focus on companionship, and commitment to accessible transport, we proudly offer a reliable and caring choice for those needing specialised transportation services in the Newmarket area.
