On Monday our car’s due its MOT and annual service. For many years our cars have been looked after by Andy Read. We know Andy as an excellent mechanic and family friend.
Many positive Facebook reviews includes: ’The best garage I have used. Very knowledgeable mechanics who have sorted some niggling problems I have had which other garages have not been able to sort out. I am impressed with these guys and the service they provide. I have no reservations in recommending this garage to anyone. 10/10!
Andy’s traded under ‘RCM’ since 1994…
RCM is also… the ‘Royal College of Music’ which boasts:
The Royal College of Music (RCM) is one of the world’s greatest conservatoires. Our excellence was recognised by the 2021 QS World University Rankings, in which we ranked as the top institution for performing arts in the UK for the sixth consecutive year, and top in Europe for second year running.
RCM is also… the ‘Royal College of Midwives’ whose mission is:
- Promoting midwifery, quality maternity services and professional standards
- Supporting our members, individually and collectively
- Influencing on behalf of members and the women and families they care for
Musing… 3 ‘RCM’s… Mechanic, Musician, Midwife… What do they have in common?
- Expertise & Skill: Each has a specific set of specialist knowledge and practical skills for which they are highly trained.
- Professional Pride: Each takes professional pride in their work, aiming at the highest standards, promoting excellence.
- People: Each is people-centred – working with customers, audiences, mothers, babies… Without these people their work’s pointless.
- Reputation: Through their consistent high standards over many years each has developed and established an excellent reputation
- Appreciation: Their smoothly-running car, beautiful music, healthy baby is appreciated; they receive applause, thanks, gifts…
Final Musing… The Royal College of Midwives was established in 1881 with the motto ‘Vita Donum Dei’ meaning ‘Life is the gift of God’…
…I think that Music is a gift from God… and that Andy’s Mechanic-skills are a gift from God.
