Scotlands Ash Garage up for national industry award
Scotlands Ash Garage, owned by Peter Welch, has been shortlisted for an industry award hosted by Automechanika Birmingham in partnership with Garage Wire, in the category ‘Best Small Garage’ for the prestigious ‘Garage of the Year’ award.
The family-run business has a reputation for excellent service, honesty and transparency, and has been serving local motorists in Didcot & South Oxfordshire for over 30 years, working tirelessly to improve the perception of independent garages throughout the UK.
The garage, a fervent supporter of the Teenage Cancer Trust, has also raised more than £8000 to date as it continues to donate £1 to the life-saving charity for every MOT it carries out.
Oxfordshire’s leading independent garage is also committed to supporting other various charities and events, having previously sponsored local football team, Wallingford Town FC and continues to play an active role in the community.
The garage has had another busy year and its hard work has not gone unnoticed as it overcame tough competition from a number of entries to gain a place against the other six shortlisted contenders in its category, all hoping to win the £1000 cash prize.
Peter Welch said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award and that all our efforts are being noticed. For us, customer service is key. We want customers to come to us feeling comfortable and safe, trusting us to do the best we can at the best possible price and therefore we go out of our way to make our workshop inviting and friendly.”
There are six award categories in total, and the winner of each category will be decided by a judging panel of automotive industry experts, due to be announced at an evening dinner to be held at The Director’s Club, Aston Villa FC on 5 June, which all category finalists will be invited to attend. The overall Garage of the Year winner will then be announced at Automechanika Birmingham on 6 June from these six category winners.
