Recently featured on BBC’s Country File, Gloucester Service Station northbound has several thousand visitors a day, since opening in May 2014. Work is progressing well on the new facility on the southbound side of the M5 between junctions 12 and 11a. Both sites are owned by the Westmorland Family and run in partnership with local charity the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust.
This is definitely a service station with a difference, from the grass roof, seeded with wild flowers, beehives in the grounds and an orchard to the farm shop and kitchen stocking local quality produce. A community art gallery is planned, along with many other initiatives which augment the company’s ethos of using home-made, best local produce from the best suppliers.
Tadmarton Products has been supplying the kitchens with a range of products from the outset and are planning on increasing the quantity and variety for the opening of the southbound side later this year. Gareth, Senior Chef of the Control Production Unit has been more than happy with the quality products received from Tadmarton Products, saying “I couldn’t wish for better customer service.”
Gloucester Services are forecasting the southbound facility will have an increased footfall on the already successful northbound side, this will go a long way in helping in the social regeneration of the area and offering a substantial rise in sustainable jobs.
I couldn’t wish for better customer service.
