MORRIS OWNERS CLUB 40TH ANNIVERSARY DRIVE WILL BE VISITING PENNELLS MONDAY SEPT 12TH

MORRIS OWNERS CLUB 40TH ANNIVERSARY DRIVE WILL BE VISITING PENNELLS MONDAY SEPT 12TH

The club is celebrating its ruby anniversary by taking a standard specification 1963 Morris
Minor 4 door saloon on a celebration trip throughout the UK. The car will be at Pennells Lincoln on September 12th between 9am and 11pm before it moves on to its next stop

The aim is to travel from John O’Groats to Land’s End but, instead of going directly, the car will over a period of 4 weeks, visit every MMOC branch in the UK as well as a number of additional locations that are significant to the history of the car or the development of the club since 1976. Amongst these will be the site of the former Morris works at Cowley, where the car was built, the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and
the home of the founder of Morris Motors, Nuffield Place.

Whilst the car is on its marathon journey around the UK, the club has chosen to link with Marie Curie to use
the trip, and many of the national and local activities planned throughout 2016, to raise much needed funds
to support the work of the charity. With this in mind, the car will also visit all nine Marie Curie residential
hospices on its travels.

Melvyn Prior from BBC Radio Lincolnshire will be there as well broadcasting his morning show from there
