Last Saturday saw Good Garage Scheme member AMK Gatwick run a Ladies Day aimed at demonstrating basic car maintenance to ladies in their area. This is the latest Good Garage Scheme garage to see the benefit of running these events in their communities.
The Ladies Day was run in two sessions which included on-car demonstrations being carried out by technicians Mark and Richard. Among the topics demonstrated were water and oil checks. There was plenty of interaction with lots of questions being asked during the checks.
Later during the session the ladies were shown the procedure for changing a wheel and this resulted in one lady volunteering to take part and fit one herself. The sessions were concluded with a small prize draw and everyone leaving with a goody bag and a certificate of attendance.
Sarah Brown commented: ‘Mum and I had a brilliant time at AMK Ladies Day yesterday, very informative. If you get the opportunity ladies, do go.’
Fiona Buchanan added: ‘Sorry so late a reply but been meaning to write in and say thank you for the very informative and fun morning - I really learnt a lot and it was lovely having a behind the scenes look. Please let me know if you have any more informative mornings!’
The owner of AMK Gatwick, Justine Lawson, has said she intends to run another event in the future. For more information about AMK Gatwick, please click here.
