Elite Garages opened its new Newport site today (Tuesday).  

The new garage is located on the former ATS site at 44-50 South Street, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1JG, directly opposite Morrisons.

Elite Garages has been a family-run business for more than 60 years, with three generations of the family working together, and Newport is their 16th vehicle repair centre.

Richard Whittemore, managing director, said: “We pride ourselves in being a local garage which delivers the personal touch you would expect from a family business.
