Awards host Brian Conley (left), and Ramsay MacDonald, Gulf retail director (right), present Julian Holliss with the award for Best Site in the West Country & Wales (up to 4mlpa).

Townstal Road Garage faced increased competition when Lidl moved in next door and then Sainsbury's opposite. It was an early UK adopter of a Subway franchise and Costa Express machine as it changed format from neighbourhood to a transient site, and also answered a community plea to house the closing post office. Investment continues in this community-orientated business which delivers high standards of operation.
