Frank Sawyer, Marcus Beach

On Saturday October 27, I travelled from the Sunshine Coast to Byron to see my granddaughter perform in The Sleeping Beauty by Byron Ballet. A wonderful performance.

On my return home I unfortunately damaged a tyre at the roadworks on the roundabout at the corner of Ewingsdale Road and Bayshore Drive.

I would like to sincerely thank the very special people who assisted or offered help. A special thanks to the ever-so-caring paramedic, also to Ben, the tow-truck driver from Simmos Auto Group, and Grant also from Simmos, who changed the tyre after the car had been transported to a safer location.

I experienced so much care and concern from so many and exceptional service from Simmos and was able to return home that evening.
