Rumour has it that summer is here at long last. Local schools will be breaking up and we all know what that means! Accessing the A10 between 0700hrs. and 0900hrs. will be slightly eased for approximately six weeks!

With the ‘holiday’ rush to the seaside and sunny days outside, NOW is the time to pop along and visit those rubber specialists at Ely Tyre Services. As a quick tip to check that your tyres are still ‘street legal’ they suggest a 20 pence piece is the ideal width and a handy way to check your tread depth is a minimum of 1.6 mm. To ensure total legality pop into Ely Tyre Services where they will professionally check the whole tyre and nothing but the tyre!

On a similar theme if you are looking at relocating your offspring to a university at the end of summer then look no further than those clever chaps at Jolly Good Van Hire who have a really helpful on line calculator to assess what size of vehicle you require. Please visit their website, follow the instructions and the calculator will work its magic and let you know the size of vehicle needed. You lucky parents, you have been taxi drivers for the little fellas’ now you can pretend to be a removal van driver!!

Summer is also the ideal time for a wedding or two and no less a visit to Page Jewellery who are gaining a name for themselves with their high standards of service. One of our followers on Facebook Ruth Buckley commented on the team at Page Jewellery who polished her engagement ring for her to match the wedding band purchased ready for the big day. Now how’s that for service.
