NEWPORT women are invited to learn all about their cars tomorrow at a free car maintenance event.

Newport based motor dealership Wessex Garages are inviting women to the evening at their premises on Newport Retail Park.

During the event running from 6.30pm until 9.30pm, women will be shown what’s required to keep their vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition.

Participants will be given a chance to have a go at changing a tyre and a self-defence expert will also demonstrate some simple, yet effective tricks to help women stay safe while out on the road.

Paul Edwards, general manager at the Kia dealership, said: “We are hosting the event to provide women with the chance to find out all about general car care and maintenance.

“Specialist speakers will be on-hand to give advice and demonstrations on personal road safety.”

For more information call 01633 745 020.

Don't be daft Argus. Of course, they're not going to have a go at changing a tyre. What would be the point; it's not as if they could ever do it at home or at the side of the road ... is it. You need specialist equipment to change a tyre and you can't carry a 5 ton tyre press around in your boot can you.
