Pace Fuelcare, distributor of heating oil, fuel and lubricants, has celebrated the launch of its latest depot in Petersfield, with a £500 donation to a local charity.

On Tuesday 1st July, the Mayor of Petersfield, Sue Harwood, cut the ribbon of the depot on Upper Adhurst Farm, London Road, and declared it officially open for business.

James Alden, regional manager of Pace Fuelcare, which is part of the Certas Energy group, was also on hand to present a £500 donation to Artscape, the Mayor’s charity of the year. Artscape is a small independent charity based in Petersfield, which supports vulnerable adults with mental health issues through weekly creative art sessions.

The new depot will play a key role in Pace Fuelcare’s network across the south of England and provide commercial, agricultural and domestic customers with road diesel, gas oil, heating oil, boiler servicing, tank sales and a full range of lubricants.

James Alden, said: “It has been a pleasure for my team and I to welcome the Mayor of Petersfield, Sue Harwood, to the launch of our latest depot. We hope the opening donation will make a significant difference to her chosen charity.  

“The whole team has put a lot of hard work in to getting the depot ready for the grand opening. We have introduced the latest storage facilities to ensure that we can offer the people of Petersfield a fast and efficient service, with the same high levels of customer service that they have come to expect from Pace Fuelcare.”

Sue Harwood added: “The new depot and opportunities it has brought are a welcome addition to our community. It has been great meeting the team and I would like to wish them every success for the future.”
