Kirkwood service station celebrates one year anniversary

THE Woolworths service station at the Kirkwood Shopping Centre has fuelled the cars of the fast growing suburb for the past year.

Staff celebrated their year of services last Saturday, with the help of members of the RSPCA.

Area Manager Matt Griffith said they received a lot of good comments from customers.

He said for the day they operated with the old fashioned fuel services, where staff fuelled up the cars for drivers.

The RSPCA brought along cats and dogs to the celebration and fundraised $460 for their not-for-profit organisation.

"The manager of the store, Renee Wallace, did a great job at organising the day," Mr Griffith said.

He said the store provides a good service to the local community.

Although he lives in Bundaberg, Mr Griffith said he was often in Gladstone and made the trip for the special occasion.
