    Howards Are Proud Sponsors Of The Weston Super Half

    Howards Motor Group are the proud sponsors of the 2018 Weston Super Half!
2017 was a great year for Howards Motor Group! We got involved in loads of local events, fundraisers and sponsorships including the Dorset County Show, Weston Hospicecare’s Mendip Challenge and Christmas Jumper Day. We’re also sponsors of local sports teams such as Yeovil Town Football Club and Weston-super-Mare A.F.C (to name a few). Getting involved in local groups as well as supporting charity fundraisers are things we feel strongly about and 2018 is already headed in the right direction!

As we look forward into 2018 we are already planning and getting involved with local events. This time we are working in partnership with the Weston Super Half, to bring you a brilliant opportunity to run a half marathon across the glorious sites of Weston-super-Mare! Starting at Marine Parade, through the picturesque villages of Somerset and finishing up a quarter mile out to see on the Grand Pier! Other sponsors include Macmillan, Just Giving and the Grand Pier!

Howards will be entering their own team of runners! We’ll be bringing you regular updates on our Howards teams training and progress, with a focus on one of our Technicians who will be going on to do the London Marathon in April! Tom Lewis, our Diagnostic Technician said:

I’m very much looking forward to participating in the first ever Weston Super Half marathon and especially being part of the Howards group team. Although I’ve run many half marathons in the past it’s great to be running somewhere completely different with an unknown course. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and everyone involved can have a great day raising as much money as possible for a fantastic cause”.


The event has teamed up with James Cracknell OBE, a Double Olympic gold medalist to host the event! He’s already been drumming up interest with our very own Peter Haynes (MD here at Howards) and David Backes (our Finance Director). They hosted an event at the Grand Pier itself, making their appearance in a branded Lotus!

This is a totally unique opportunity and we are really happy to be a part of it! With the opportunity to run the half marathon,13.1 miles OR (if this is a bit too much) why not enter the Community Mile? The Community Mile offers families, friends and schools the opportunity to get involved in the Weston Super Half by joining in for just a mile of the route in a fun run, jog or walk, whatever suits you!

Why not see how you can get involved on the Weston Super Half site?

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
