This year we were at the Shropshire Truck Show in Oswestry both Saturday and Sunday representing Ryminster Medical Services. The event was sponsored by Towergate Insurance who were offering a scholarship to one lucky potential driver who was at the show.
Drivers and haulage companies from up and down the country turned out for the show which took place from the 5th-7th September and throughout the weekend drivers could be seen proudly polishing their vehicles until shiny enough to see their own reflection.
The main arena was the place to be as stuntmen performed various routines on their motocross bikes, adding to the other exciting events that went on in the arena over the weekend such as cars driving on just their right wheels.
Playing our Part
Ryminster Medical Services utilised a stand for the Truck Show, taking many bookings over the weekend for driver medicals for drivers who upon stumbling past our stand and being informed of our expert service realised that they were being charged far too much for their medical, either by their local GP or by the Doctor who their company uses to carry out its drivers’ medicals.
Whilst at the Truck show people were very surprised that we could offer a driver medical which included an eye test, all for just £40. Many drivers we spoke to during the weekend admitted to us that they were guilty of paying over the odds just for a medical and couldn’t believe how little they actually needed to pay for the service, whilst still receiving the same professional and reliable care from a qualified and experienced Doctor.
The Shropshire Star were kind enough to mention us in their report of the Show which also included images of the impressive vehicles at the event.
Our highlight of the weekend however was pleasing children far and wide who raced to us after hearing from their friends a promise of free chocolate. It was truly a weekend well spent for all of us who took part and we look forward to the Shropshire Truck Show 2016. Below are a few pictures which tell the story of our weekend at the show.
