Five branches worked alongside a head office team during June to take the message out to garages.

The Garage Essentials team reported an ‘exceptional’ response from the local trade to an offer on the Launch X431 GDS, as Omega and Laser Tools demonstrated new products from their tool vans.

GSF team members took part in product awareness training, with presentations from key suppliers including Elstock, Banner Batteries and Sogefi.

The evening was attended by more than 30 staff, in the award-winning conference facilities of Exeter Rugby Club’s Sandy Park Stadium.

A camping trip in the South-West corner of Devon saw the staff unite to defy warm temperatures, starting at 9am with setting up 20 canvas bell tents, complete with air beds, quilts, pillows and guest goody bags before the afternoon arrival of guests.

By 3pm the party was in full swing on the beach with a barbeque, bar and even a steel band.

Managing Director Jonny West said: “The team really pulled the stops out in creating the ‘glamping’ experience to be proud of and our customers were delighted.”

During the afternoon four 12 person canoes were used to travel from Tuckenhay’s famous riverside pub, The Maltster’s Arms down to the estuary to join the beach-side fun.

The next Area Focus takes place near Manchester, covering the North West, with the South West following later in the year – garages are advised to look out for details.
