    Howards Motor Group Sponsor Clevedon Cricket Club

    We are delighted to announce that our newest sponsor is the Clevedon Cricket Club, one of the well-known local cricket clubs in the country…

As a local business we are always on the look out to support other initiatives and good causes in the surrounding area. We are proud to announce that our latest sponsorship venture is with the Clevedon Cricket Club, one of the well-known local clubs in the country.

Citroen and Kia retailers in Weston-super-Mare will be sponsoring the new team kits, which will be printed with the official Howards logo. The club has also recently received a grant of £29,000 from the England and Wales Cricket Board to put towards the much needed installation of three new training nets. 

Clevedon Cricket Club Chairman, Paul Jenkins, is delighted by the new sponsorship deal and has said, “The dealership’s sponsorship has enabled us to provide each team with smart kit which will be worn with pride. A strong partnership has already developed between Clevedon Cricket Club and Howards Motor Group’s Citroen and Kia dealerships, and this is intended to last at least three years and, we hope, for much longer going forward. Without the support of businesses such as this, we wouldn’t be able to commit to the many fixtures we have each season.”

“I’d like to thank Howards Motor Group for their generous sponsorship. It’s thanks to companies like this that we are able to run and develop our club, especially our junior section which continues to grow from strength to strength, something we feel that benefits the local community greatly.”

The club has had many great players over the years including Geraint Owen Jones MBE who has played for Kent Country Cricket Club and was also first-choice wicketkeeper for England in both Test and One-Day cricket up until August 2006. He is currently the captain for Gloucestershire in first-class cricket and continues to play for Papua New Guinea national cricket squad.

Other players include Scottish cricketer Joshua Davey, who now plays for Somerset County Cricket Club; South African cricketer Kyle Abbott, who now plays for teams in his home country; and New Zealand player Andrew Caddick, who has since retired from his career as a successful England blower.

Paul Jenkins continued saying, “Our First Eleven team now play in the West of England Premier League. With our current training programme and the competitiveness of our teams let’s hope there’s every possibility that some of our junior players will go on to play professionally in the sport.”

“Howards Motor Group’s involvement through sponsorship is very welcome indeed. It will be great to see our team members look their best during this summer.”

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish the Clevedon Cricket Club all the best for their upcoming season!

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.
