A BURNHAM business came home from a national awards ceremony in London highly commended by industry experts.

Springfield Autocare & Car Sales, in Springfield Road, were shortlisted for an award at Car Dealer Magazine’s 2017 Used Car Awards.

The company, run by Gary Popham, was nominated in the ‘Service and Repair Outlet of the Year’ category, making it down to the final and being highly commended by the judges.

The recognition comes a year after the garage was highly commended for its customer care and awarded second place in the ‘Best Used Car Dealer under 50 cars’ category at the same award last year.

Mr Popham was delighted with the achievement.

He said: “We are just so proud to have got down to the final and be labelled as the best of the best. Getting to the final itself was a huge achievement in its own right for a small business in Burnham.

“To be awarded so highly for our service and repair side of the business is a brilliant achievement for us all.

“I want to say thanks to all our loyal customers past, present and future for their support and business. And I personally would like to say a massive thank you to my amazing team. A business is nothing without its staff.”

Workers at the garage attended the awards ceremony at the Brewery, in London, along with Peter Popham, Gary’s father, who started the business more than 30 years ago.

They were presented their award on November 27 by Mike Brewer, from television show Wheeler Dealer’s.
