Owner of Charlie’s Service Station in Terrington St Clement, Charlie Wenner, has just celebrated two milestones – the 25th anniversary of running his own business and his 50th birthday, which was on March 16.
To mark both occasions family, friends and customers were invited to a celebration party. Said Charlie: “I wanted to say thanks to all our customers who have been loyal over the years.” Charlie began his career in the motor trade, with his father, Derek Wenner, who set up Fenland Service Station in West Lynn in the 1960s. In 1991 Charlie set up his own business, but went back to help his father in 1997 and renamed the business Charlie’s Service Station. In 2003 Charlie moved to smaller premises in Churchgateway to keep prices competitive. His father continues to work as part of the experienced team. The family-run firm offers a wide range of used cars for sale, servicing and MOTs. The business can be contacted on 01553 827400.
