Richard steps on the gas
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

March 20, 2010: Did you see our celebrity garage owner on Spotlight the other night? Richard Brock from Exbourne Cross Garage was contacted by BBC TV about the demise of petrol stations in rural areas. Spotlight staff thought that Richard may be one of the last remaining, so they came along and interviewed him for Thursday's local TV slots. Exbourne Cross garage has been selling petrol for 60 years and still provides a personal fill-up service. Richard took it over 15 years ago. Check out their web site here.
