For today's stroll down Helensburgh's memory lane, we go back 10 years to the striking of a £3.6 million deal between the Ministry of Defence and a Helensburgh driving school.

A HELENSBURGH business has landed a £3.6 million contract to teach soldiers to drive.

AcciDON’T will teach around 1,700 soldiers a year, at the Defence School of Transport at Leconfield in East Yorkshire.

But the business will be carrying on as normal in Helensburgh.

Simon Johnston of AcciDON’T said this week: “This is third MoD contract that AcciDON’T have been awarded.”
