Staff at car retailer Thurlow Nunn are celebrating after being presented with a highly-coveted Vauxhall customer excellence award.

The yearly award by the British manufacturer recognises and rewards top-performing retailers for the quality of service they give to their customers, using only customer satisfaction as the judging criteria.

To celebrate this special accolade, regional director Gary Osborn and his team were presented with their customer excellence award at the dealership, whose sites at Great Yarmouth, Diss and Beccles contributed collectively to winning the award.

Gary said: 'We're delighted with this achievement and would like to thank all of our customers for representing us in such a positive light in Vauxhall's satisfaction surveys and therefore helping us to secure this incredible award.

'When a customer visits our dealership, they can feel confident that they will be receiving truly dedicated customer service. Indeed, as we are so committed to customer care, we'll be doing our very best to ensure that we score even higher next year.'
