Ladies Evening at Station Garage Belper

Ladies Evening Leaflet
Good Garage Scheme member garage, Station Garage (Belper), held a Ladies Evening on 10th July 2013. Local businesses such as hair salons and beauty salons also helped to promote the evening with leaflets and advertising.

Around 40 ladies attended on the evening and were advised about checking levels underneath the bonnet by Catherine (Cat) Treaner, 3rd Year apprentice at Station Garage. Attendees were also given the opportunity to check oil levels for themselves.

The ladies were also shown an oil and filter change by Good Garage Scheme representative, Chris Poynton, who explained how quickly new oil is contaminated if the engine is not flushed first, demonstrating with samples of oil from a car in the workshop.

Jason Curzon of Station Garage explained what is checked during an MOT and more importantly, what is not checked. He explained that an MOT is not a service and that many people believe that having an MOT is all that is required.

Some of the ladies who attended commented that is was a very enjoyable evening and said they would be interested in coming along to another event later in the year for advice about making sure their cars are prepared for the winter months on the road.

Action Charity
As well as all of the advice and demonstrations given on the night, Station Garage Belper also managed to raise money to support their chosen charity, Action -medical research for children, with all proceeds from refreshments sold on the evening going to the charity.
