Archived News - Edlesborough Autos
It is with regret, that I am writing to all our local residents via the Focus magazine, to inform you that we will shortly be having to stop the fuel sales side of our business.
As a person who strongly argues the case for local community facilities such as pubs, shops, cafes etc., this is a decision that has not been taken lightly, but has been forced on us by ever changing legislation along with the state of the ageing dispensing and storage facilities at our site. This together with greater difficulty in getting a regular competitively priced product following the Buncefield explosion has meant that it has not been financially viable to sell fuel for a long period now.
I know that following quite closely behind the closure of our other local fuel station, this will be a real disappointment and I can assure you we have agonised over this decision until circumstances have finally forced our hand.
I would like to also take this opportunity to thank you all for your patronage and support over the many years we have been in business and also to assure you, that there will be no change to our workshop and Mot operations. Rest assured that Edlesborough Autos will continue to be here to change that brake light bulb, check your tyres and oil levels and for all your other motoring requirements.
