Petrol station celebrates first anniversary with clutch of awards

A petrol forecourt in Marlborough has celebrated its first anniversary by winning a clutch of awards at the fuel industry’s answer to the Oscars.

Fraser’s Budgens of Marlborough was named the best large petrol station in the South West at the Forecourt Trader magazine awards. 

The facility, which opened to great fanfare in October last year, also scooped the national titles for best design and development, and best forecourt facilities.

The awards celebrate entrepreneurial skill, imagination and dedication in running a successful business.

Recent initiatives run by the community-minded firm include a ‘virtual harvest’ campaign to buy a trolley full of shopping for Devizes Food Bank.

The initiative raised £488 for the charity, and the food basket will help to help local people in food poverty.
