Family-run business and Withernsea community favourite Tower Garage looks to the future as its current owners retire


The Gazette spoke to the pair about their retirement, memories, and changes of the garage after owning it for over two decades. In September 2000, they started it as a family business along with their son Matthew and daughter Laura. Initially, the Tower Garage was run as a petrol, vehicle servicing, repairs, and MOT station. However, in 2008 despite the difficult decision to cease retailing fuel, the opportunity arose to become part of the Bosch Car Service Network. The Bosch...

Preston traffic ‘Rat Runs’ protest


A PROTEST against rat-running traffic took place at ‘rush hour’ in Preston last week on Thursday September 16. Up to 30-40 residents formed a protest group on the narrow pathways adjacent to Kirk Road on Thursday. Held during the two hours of ‘rush hour’ the protest highlighted the misuse of Kirk Road. The road connects Main Street with Rectory Lane but is an access only route. However, the access-only rule is widely ignored. A Preston parish councillor said that in his own personal observations, up to 50 vehicles had used the road in a previous rush hour. However, on the teatime of the protest misuse of the road was largely deterred. Whilst Kirk Road was the focus of the protest, it was part...

Perfect away day start for Patrington


AFTER a good pre-season which saw friendlies against today’s opponents, Cottingham Rangers and Thorngumbald Barons, it was time to get back to business in this group 5 clash. Some new recruits have strengthened Turnbull and McBride’s squad for the 2021/2022 season, and with training sessions beingvery good of late, you can feel the excitement of a new chapter just beginning. We welcome Archie, and Bob who have joined from a local side, Oliver has stepped up to the playing team and with the pacey Harvey resigning for the red and blacks we looked to be in good shape. A strong squad named for the trip to St. Andrews, we started with Will between the sticks, last season’s double trophy winner Mason and...

Easington’s spirit gives Foster hope


DESPITE seeing his side slip to a fourth defeat in as many league games, Craig Foster remains remarkably upbeat ahead of this week’s ‘basement battle’ at home to Blackburn Athletic. For some weeks now, the Eastenders boss has resigned himself to ‘hoping for the best but preparing for the worst’ when it comes to personnel choices and, as things stand, he will probably not see anything like his first choice eleven take to the field this side of Christmas. That said Foster has been hugely impressed by the attitude and spirit of those who have donned a shirt during the troubled start. ‘I can’t fault them’, he said in the immediate wake of Saturday’s cruel loss to Chaos United. Having just seen his team beaten by the last kick of the game...
