A motoring group committed to improving the standard of driving in Weston is piloting a new course and needs volunteers.

The Weston and Mendip Advanced Motorists is creating a new course to show drivers how they can reduce their fuel consumption and improve their carbon footprint.

However, it first needs volunteers to shape how the course will work.

Anyone who wants to be involved will need to use their own car with a trip computer, which is built into most modern vehicles, to record the miles per gallon.

A spokesman for the group said: “Initially we are looking for a dozen or so volunteers to prove the concept and identify the range of improvement for this type of driver.”

Anyone who wants to be involved can text Neil Bayliss at 07952 832765 or email westonmendipadvancedmotorists@gmail.com who will organise the best dates.
