Faringdon Ladies Afternoon Tea
Last weekend Faringdon centre manager Nikki Ham hosted an afternoon of tea and tips to the local ladies of Faringdon as part of an initiative to help break the stigmatism of women in garages and support Tyre Safety Month.
Over 20 customers came to the event and were greeted by Nikki and her team as well as Steph Savill from Foxy Lady Drivers Club
Foxy Lady Drivers Club was established by Steph after her daughter had a bad experience at a garage. Steph was shocked and made it her mission to help women feel at ease and empowered in an intimidating masculine industry.
After much discussion around garage fears and disaster stories from other garages they had used, the ladies were split into three groups and guided to advice stations to cover topics of interest:
How to Change a Tyre
- How to change a wheel at the roadside
How to Check Car Fluids
- Checking/top up oils and coolants
How to Check your Tyres
- Checking tyres and tyre choices
The session lasted 2hrs and the feedback was positive with lots of useful knowledge leaving the event to be shared with their friends and families.
Each attendee got a goodie bag with useful information and a complimentary gift membership for Foxy Lady Drivers Club as well.
