5 Stars for Westmorlands Tebay Services

VisitEngland, the national tourist board, has revealed the star rating results for their assessment scheme for Motorway service stations across the UK. The rigorous inspection scheme of all 107 service stations in England, was undertaken over the last 12 months and revealed Tebay Services south, between J38 and J39 on the M6 in Cumbria - The Lake District as the 5 star stop. Tebay Services, which grew out of the family farm, was the only service station in the UK to achieve this sought after accolade.

Feeling Sheepish In Matson

The Daily Mail Online picked up the ‘national story’ in 2012 of Matson sheep taking over grass cutting duties locally and improving biodiversity from GGT twitter feed.  Although some sheep let themselves into residents gardens for a ‘munch’ and that isn’t always so welcome!

But don’t be sheepish about registering your interest for any of the Gateway services building jobs in 2013 or permanent jobs in 2014. If you are interested call in to the Gateway in Matson or APT Central in Stonehouse and get yourself on our jobs lists so we can let you know when these and other local opportunities come up.
