Or, as Charles Dickens put it: “The white face of the winter day came sluggishly on, veiled in a frosty mist”.
Meanwhile, nowadays, we know we’re in trouble when the weather presenter appears after the news with the kind of smile that says: “You’re all about to suffer”. Soon the Beeb will have sent reporters out into the worst of the conditions so that they can stand there and tell us not to go out in those conditions!
When there's work to be done however, most of us don’t have the option of a cosy fireplace and the latest box set. If you are out and about in your commercial vehicle, such weather conditions highlight the need to have it fully serviced and safely ready to cope with whatever our climate chucks in its direction.
Our team here at M4 are now even better placed to be able to offer help with both your van servicing and commercial vehicle repairs needs, due to the recent opening of our Service & MOT Centre at Westmead Industrial Estate in Swindon. This is in addition to our existing Service Centre in Lyneham (near Chippenham, here in Wiltshire), which is easy to access from the M4. Whatever the size or age of your vehicle, our experienced and professional team are ready to help keep you on the road.
When times are financially tough, we know that some folk hope their vehicle can manage to survive with reduced attention to servicing. This is never a good idea, especially in the wintry and testing conditions that look to be hanging around for a while. The much-welcomed and ongoing reduction in fuel prices does provide a chance to divert some funds to maintaining what is, often, a vital lifeline for any business.

Meanwhile, as you struggle through these freezing, icy and foggy winter mornings, you’ll probably want to join us in offering genuine sympathy to those hardy spectators at the cricket in Melbourne at the weekend who, the commentators gravely told us, were wrapped-up in blankets because: “It’s only 16C outside!”
