Such kindness by tyre firm workers
Letter from Kidderminster Shuttle reader:
"MAY I, through your newspaper, express my thanks to the two gents who helped me last Thursday.
On my way home on my mobility scooter I had a puncture at the bottom of Station Hill in Kidderminster.
Immediately two gents crossed the road from the tyre service centre opposite, took the scooter over to the garage, found me a chair, removed the wheel, repaired the puncture and checked the pressure in the rest of the tyres.
When they had finished I asked how much I owed and they said ‘no charge.’ It is acts like this which bolster my belief in the kindness of most people."

Winter tyres may seem like an extra and perhaps unnecessary expense to UK residents as we do not usually suffer the extreme temperatures and weather conditions as other countries, such as Germany, where it is a legal requirement to switch to winter tyres when seasons change.
Did you know battery faults are a common cause of breakdown? Furthermore, when cold weather hits, your battery is more likely to fail. HiQ Easy Tyre & Autocentres have put together some helpful advice for looking after your battery this winter and decrease your chance of having a car related breakdown or problem.
