The NTDA was devastated to hear of the death of one of its long standing members and industry stalwart Andy Bucknall who suddenly passed away at his home in Packmoor on Friday 30th December 2016 aged only 52 years.

Andy had a long and successful career in the tyre industry, most recently as Managing Director of South Cheshire Tyre & Exhaust Ltd T/A HiQ.

He was a very popular and active member of the NTDA and its North West and North Wales region.

NTDA Chief Executive Stefan Hay said: “ The news of Andy’s death comes as a massive shock, especially as many of us saw him at the NTDA Winter Ball in Blackpool in late November. He was a fantastic guy and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his lovely wife Carol, his children James, Robert and Rachel and his grandchildren Blake, Ryley and Ella-Mai.”

His funeral service will be held at Bradwell Crematorium on Friday 27th January 2017 at 10.40am.
