A first taste of Truckfest North East

Driver Hire has been a supporter of Truckfest for many years, and regularly takes a stand at the events in Scotland and Peterborough.

There’s now a new show on the block – Truckfest North East, which took place on 28 & 29 May at Wolsingham Showground in Country Durham. So a team from Driver Hire Newcastle went along to show our support and enjoy the day.

Whilst Rachael McWilliams (Operations Director) is something of a Truckfest veteran, it was the first time David Burn (Manager) and Sarah Babadi (Recruitment Consultant, Driver Hire Newcastle) had had the opportunity to go along to one of these legendary events.

“We loved it,” says Sarah. “So many people were happy to take a moment to show us their amazing vehicles and share a bit of industry knowledge. It really helped me to understand more about the needs of our driving colleagues and the work they do for so many transport operators around the region.”

“For a new show, it was very impressive,” adds David. “Rachael had told me to be ready for a really friendly event, and look out for the monster trucks, the awards, the vehicle demonstrations and so on. But I was still pleasantly surprised – and since Driver Hire will be at Truckfest Scotland in August, we’re definitely going along.”

Discussions are now under way for Driver Hire to support the North East event in a more formal way in 2023 – maybe we’ll see you there.
