• 2021 Moving Forward from the Pandemic

    Moving forward, the service stations and test and tune are continuing to be a sustainable and reliable local business, with the entire site providing employment for the local area and the business adapting to uncertain and unprecedented times in the global pandemic and its aftermath.

  • 2020 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic

    After a successful period of sustained growth, the pandemic lockdown that began in March 2020 impacted the traffic flow to the site. The service stations and Test and Tune were classed as essential businesses necessary to keep the national transport network functional. Although turnover dropped during the first lockdown, we found that hot food sales in the service station were steady as most other hot food locales, such as McDonalds and KFC closed. Test and Tune maintained a steady stream of business with the breakdown and recovery, largely with recoveries on behalf of the police and emergency forces and attending to NHS and other fellow key worker vehicle breakdowns. Outside of the lockdowns, trade largely resumed to normal.

    2020 also saw an increase in the variety and range of hot food to go products available in the petrol station, we began to sell Pizza, Ice Blast slushies, Nachos, milkshakes and an increased range of hot sandwiches to go, including extended Rollover hot dog range and burgers.
