This week Northampton’s branch of National Tyres and Autocare is in the spotlight as it welcomed The One Show’s
cameras as part of a nationwide
tyre safety campaign.
The BBC crew filmed customers getting their tyres checked, showing what a dangerously worn tyre looks like, and also provided a backdrop for a simple
safety check demonstration from TyreSafe.
TyreSafe is one of the UK’s leading tyre safety organisations and was demonstrating its simple 20p tread depth test for the One Show.
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe said ‘National Tyres and Autocare are active and founder members of Tyresafe, and kindly allowed us to film on
their premises for The One Show.’
‘Tyre safety is our number one priority’ comments Michael Bourne of National Tyres and Autocare. ‘All our fitters are fully trained to check, repair
and replace tyres. We help customers choose the best tyre for their needs, and offer free safety advice and tyre checks to help keep motorists safe on
the roads. Our commitment to safety doesn’t stop in the branch. We are full members of Tyresafe, and believe it’s vitally important to support them in
communicating tyre safety to the general public.’
Free tyre checks are available at National’s branch on St. Peter’s Way by calling 01604 635 315 or book online at http://www.national.co.uk
The tyre safety feature is schedule to appear on The One Show this Wednesday 12th October on BBC One at 7pm.
The One Show comes to Northampton (trade)
National Tyres and Autocare provided a home to The One Show earlier this month as it hosted filming for a BBC tyre safety feature.
The report focuses on the importance and consequences of driving on tyres with illegal tread, showing an illegal tyre, the fitting process, and also
the 20p tread depth test performed by Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe.
‘National Tyres and Autocare are active and founder members of Tyresafe, and kindly allowed TyreSafe to film on their premises for The One Show
.’ says Stuart Jackson of TyreSafe.
‘Tyre safety is our number one priority’ comments Michael Bourne, Marketing Director of National Tyres and Autocare. ‘All our fitters are fully trained
in tyre safety and as you would expect, provide expert advice to customers in branch and online. It’s crucial that customers are given as much
independent advice as possible about tyre safety, and that is why National are proud to be full members of TyreSafe, supporting them in their
campaigns. We were delighted to welcome them at our Northampton branch to film for The One Show.’
