Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Chartman hosts Highways Agency campaign launch

21 November, 2014

Two snow ploughs were at the launch

Chartman Group’s flagship Winning Post service station at Haldon Hill on the A38 outside Exeter has hosted the launch of the Highways Agency’s annual  winter driving campaign.

Chartman director Clive Sheppard said the request came out of the blue and the company was happy to help out.

They were able to cone off a corner of the site so it did not affect business and the event took place on Thursday November 20.

Clive said the agency brought two snow ploughs for photo opportunities, and there were representatives from the agency and the Institute of Advanced Motoring who were interviewed by journalists from TV radio and national and local newspapers. That evening the event was featured on the local TV news.

Clive said it was great recognition for the site, which reopened in May after a £2m redevelopment, and for the wider forecourt industry.

The campaign advises motorists on how to prepare for driving conditions in winter and he added: “Whenever there is snow the TV companies come here to film because Haldon Hill always seems to get the extremes of weather.”
