Gas pumps and store at Fairlee gas station will close in March


The FAIRLEE gas station will close the gas pumps and shop in March.

The petrol station has been selling petrol for 60 years, but owner Simon Flack decided it was time for his family business to move with the times.

Based on Fairlee Road for 60 years, Simon feels like a part of the community, but thinks the days of selling fuel are over.

Simon wrote on the Fairlee service station website: “We are pleased to report that car sales will increase and the shop will continue to operate as usual.

“I take this opportunity to thank you for choosing us and for the trust you place in our services.

“Our slogan ‘So much more than gasoline’ has served us well.

“Although you won’t see it in our adverts anymore, it’s still essentially true – think of us now as Fairlee ‘much more, but no gas!'”

As the station transitions, Simon and the team will keep customers informed through their various online channels.

Isle of Wight Council has brought back house building plans at the entrance to Seaclose Park.

The council consults on the plans, but they suggest building above the service station.

Simon says the council has not consulted him on those plans and that no houses will be built on the Fairlee petrol station site “for the foreseeable future”.
