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

A good result

In the April issue I carried the tale of Andrew Fraser who works at a couple of Hills Garage’s forecourts in the Northwest. He was about to be taken to court by Cumbria trading standards – along with a load of others in the area – after the TSOs had mounted a series of test purchasing stings. He pleaded not guilty and I’m happy to report that, in June, he was given a conditional discharge. “Basically I got a caution. They (trading standards) were not happy to back down.”
Andrew says he was a bundle of nerves by the time it came to court. “But I’ve got very, very good bosses,” he adds, “who have backed me 100%. We’ve got a good result and now we’re all keeping our eyes open.”
