FUN DAY MARKS BUSINESS ANNIVERSARY

Winford Road Garage Marks 45 Years

Staff and customers joined in the celebrations when a fun day was held to mark the 45th anniversary of Winford Road Garage, near Bristol, which has a SPAR forecourt store.

There were fun events for children including bouncy castles, a barbecue and refreshments, promotional deals in store and a birthday cake with a photograph of the store printed on it.

The business was opened in 1967 as a local vehicle service centre under the ownership of Geoff Taylor and today is run by his son Justin. The Shell garage and SPAR forecourt store serve an affluent local community in the rural Chew Valley area to the south of Bristol.

Just before taking over the reins from his father, Justin and Geoff developed the previously unbranded forecourt shop seven years ago, doubling its size to a 1,250 sq.ft. SPAR store in a major co-investment development scheme with Appleby Westward.

Previously selling mainly snacks and confectionery, the forecourt store now provides a modern convenience offer for its rural community, including a range of delicatessen-style chilled and fresh products sourced locally.
