Newsletter w/c 17th May 2021

We hope everyone has had a great week.The rain has been a pain again this week however the next step on the road to normality begins today!

This Friday we will be continuing to serve outdoors only. At some point we hope to be able to move inside but we are conscious that should we get poor weather then we may not be able to cope!

We have got some plans to hold some club events once restrictions allow and this should include the Euro Football Championships and a beer festival. Once we have plans in place we will let you know.

Meet Our Sponsors
Each week we highlight one of our sponsors and the services that they can offer you!

This week we would like to introduce you to R.E Howard & Sons.

With over 60 years experience in car servicing and repairs, there cannot be many independent garages in Nottingham with such a rich and customer focused history.

Founded by the late Bob Howard in 1946, the business started from lowly beginnings in a two car lock-up on Musters Road in West Bridgford, Nottingham, moving to its present location on Gertrude Road  in the mid 1950s.

The business has flourished, earning a reputation, second to none, for good, honest, reliable service – highly attractive qualities in these demanding business times – and ones which are rewarded by long standing customer loyalty.

Now run by son David – who joined his father at the age of 17 in 1970 – the business has lost none of its accessible, family feel and customers can be sure of a warm welcome by David and his team of mechanics when they visit.
