Following last year's announcement that Trident had been accepted into Honda's Platinum business programme, Trident has now completed the sale of three Civic Tourers to local company BSRIA.

Trident Honda's dealer principal and commercial director, Steve Henderson, said:

For businesses that prefer to hire vehicles rather than own them outright, then Honda Contract Hire rentals offer the ideal solution. We were delighted to be able to supply a local company BSRIA with three new Civic Tourers and to receive such positive feedback from them.

Trident Honda was delighted once again to sponsor the West Byfleet Golf Club Charity Day on Friday 28th July. Trident had put forward the opportunity to win a Honda Jazz should anyone get a hole-in-one on the 17th hole.

The day itself went very well and, despite the weather threatening to ruin the day, in fact the day passed largely unspoilt by rain. Despite much enthusiasm, the pressure clearly proved too much - and the closest anyone reached to the 17th hole was 3 feet! And so the Jazz was duly returned to Ottershaw without having been won.

The Diesel Debate - Which Fuel is Right for Me?

Thursday, 27 July 2017 at 1.40PM

Choosing your next Honda

There has been much debate about diesel cars and their emissions, both CO2, NOx and particulates. In order to make a decision on your next car, you need to understand these emission types and how they relate to the sort of driving you do:

  • CO2 - contributes to global warning and is a threat to the planet
  • NOx and particulates - affect local air quality and are an urban challenge

Diesel cars produce less CO2 than Petrol, which is beneficial for our fight against global warming, but petrol cars produce less NOx and particulates, which is beneficial for tackling local air quality. Therefore we believe that every driver should purchase the car that works best for their journey, profile and lifestyle:

  • Think Diesel - if you drive long distances on the motorway or are generally a high mileage driver
  • Think Petrol - if you live in a city and mainly do short journeys inside the city or are generally a low mileage driver

Trident Honda partnered with Woking & Sam Beare Hospices for the annual Dragon Boat Race on 25 June, which is expected to raise a final total of more than £18,000, including pledged sponsorship from the rowing teams.

The event, which is held at Goldsworth Park Lake, is sponsored by Trident Honda and in memory of Kris Cook, who grew up close to the lake where he pursued his love of water sports and was a keen supporter of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.

The race saw teams of 12-20 people taking the plunge to race across the lake in special boats, competing against the clock and each other to win a place in the final race of the day. 12 teams took to the waters, with spectators gathered lake side in the sunshine to watch the teams compete. Activities and hospitality were also on offer with a bouncy castle, BBQ, tombola, face painting and games stalls to entertain and raise funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.

Phil Wormley, the director of fundraising for the Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, comments:

On behalf of all of us at the hospice I extend a huge thank you to our event sponsor, Trident Honda, to their team the Trident Otters and to all the teams who took part in the Dragon Boat Race. We deliver specialist palliative care to over 1,400 patients with life-limiting and terminal illnesses each year across six Surrey boroughs and we would not be able to do it without the generosity of our supporters.

Richard Roberts, managing director at Trident Honda, commented:

We are always delighted to sponsor the Dragon Boat Race and provide support to such a worthy cause. Thanks to our team the Trident Otters for taking part, we may not have won but with just 17 seconds between the first and the last teams it was a hard fought battle! There was a fantastic turnout from the local community on the day and the weather couldn't have been better for it. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Woking & Sam Beare Hospices and helping to raise much needed funds.

After an exciting day of heats, it was the Amstelveense Stadtdraken team who won first place, from Woking's twin town in the Netherlands. Close second came Seymour Estate Agents, followed by the Reg Varney Rowing Club.

Please see a full video of the day below:

And another video of the final race:

The Dragon Boat Race dates back 2000 years throughout southern China and is now taken place annually for 20 centuries. It is a water sport that has attracted the international scene with its religious ceremonies and folk customers. Before every race, a ritual is performed as a good luck charm for all the teams.

These models will not face charges anywhere in Britain under the government's Clean Air Zone proposals.

The Midnight Walk was a sea of flashing bunny ears

Thursday, 25 May 2017 at 11.07AM

Sponsored by Trident Honda and supported by Woking Leisure Centre, Woking and Sam Beare Hospices delivered their 10th annual Midnight Walk with over 700 ladies of all generations. Each donning their capes and very eye catching flashing bunny ears.

Total monies raised is still to be confirmed but the event was extremely well attended and the atmosphere from start to finish was fantastic. Woking Leisure Centre was our new venue for registration, followed by a warm up lead by fitness experts from Nuffield Health and Freedom Leisure, before the ladies set off on the eight mile walk. The sea of flashing lights could be seen through Woking Centre and up to the new hospice in Goldsworth Park Centre, around the lake, and back to Woking Leisure Centre via Horsell. At the finish line the ladies were greeted and presented with medals by event sponsor Richard Roberts, Managing Director of Trident Honda, and newly confirmed permanent CEO of the hospice Jayne Cooper.
