Mechanics of the future

Call to action

Saturday 16th September was a morning with a difference at our Heywood operating centre. We were pleased to be able to welcome 1st Read & Simonstone Scout Group. 

The Scouts wanted to complete their mechanics badge, and we were more than happy to show them around the operating centre. 

They were shown how to conduct vehicle checks (a vital part of a drivers day) and even replaced a few lightbulbs along the way. The Scouts also looked at the importance of roadworthiness on our vehicle fleet and explored measures ensuring the fleet is always in tip top condition.

The morning finished with each of the Scouts taking to the drivers seat completing a simple yard manoeuvre (under the watchful eye of our Managing Director). The experience also gave these young people an insight into the hard work of our UK drivers.

It’s fantastic to be able to facilitate such a visit and we are very pleased that we could support these Scouts in gaining their Mechanics badge.
