Driving Miss Daisy Lydney

Glyn Van Poetsch

Hello, my name is Glyn.

I have worked in numerous job roles over the years;  including Airport Management, Sales Representative to running my own business as a flooring Contractor. More recently, as a Construction Site Manager; I worked away a lot, and I felt it was time to work closer to home.

I started looking for driving jobs locally and came across Driving Miss Daisy on a Franchise website.

After scrolling through the Driving Miss Daisy Website for days on end… I went for it! It felt good, and the prospect of running my own business, working from home and caring in my local community really appealed to me.

Now, I am a Driving Miss Daisy Franchise owner covering Lydney & The Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire together with my second Daisy Paula, who is brilliant with our customers.

Taking people where they need to go is what we do. I love being a daisy driver, meeting new clients, having lots of regular customers, and enjoying listening to their “life stories”. Being a Driving Miss Daisy Companion Driver is a gratifying role.
