A mechanic from March is aiming to bring the family together with the opening of his new garage.
Jamie Coombs and 21-year-old son Brandon hope to create new opportunities from March Fast fit and Servicing on Creek Road, after thinking of the idea in June last year.
Mr Coombs, who has been in the motor trade for 25 years, said: "Brandon has turned into the ideal person, and opening the garage gives him a step forward and something to look forward to.
"The business gives my son, my daughter Shannon and my wife Angela the opportunity to learn new trades and skills, and can open up possibilities for them to develop new opportunities for themselves."
Work is still being done ahead of the launch on February 3, which has cost around £30,000, and Mr Coombs also aims to educate customers on tricks of the trade through taking photos and videos.
