Hi, we are Bridgette and Michael, owners of Driving Miss Daisy Newmarket. We have been married for over 40 years and have three daughters and seven grandchildren.

We first heard about Driving Miss Daisy from our friends Paul & Ada Nuth; who’d seen a Driving Miss Daisy vehicle whilst holidaying in New Zealand. Paul invited the founders of Driving Miss Daisy New Zealand, Jack & Mel, to the UK to discuss launching the service here, and we were fortunate enough to be invited to the meeting, we realised the service would be ideal for members of the Newmarket community.

In the Autumn of 2015, we decided to invest in a franchise. We now have a thriving driving & companion service to offer to elderly and vulnerable people in the area, taking them to medical appointments and social events. We also have two wheelchair accessible vehicles and hoping to add a third soon. 


We'd love to help
