Service Call - En Route Petrol Station

For the use of the Co-op's disabled shareholders who cannot cope with the self service arrangements.

A single receiver is mounted at the service kiosk and hand-held, infra-red transmitters are distributed to customers to keep in their cars. When used, the receiver in the kiosk bleeps, alerting the staff that a customer is outside and requires personal service.

To apply for a transmitter, motorists who are Co-op shareholders and who have a Blue Badge, should call in at the St Peter En Route Service Station.
