#GoGlenys Project Update: Glenys gets a paint job!

We were very excited to visit Fuzz over at To-Ta Classics last week and discover that Glenys has now been painted! Doesn’t she look great?! We hope you all agree that we made the right choice in keeping her original colour.


Don’t forget, you can buy a raffle ticket for your chance of winning Glenys for just £2 from our JustGiving page! All the proceeds from the raffle are being donated directly to the Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove, who provide care & support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, in North East Worcestershire.

So far the project has raised almost £3000; this is a fantastic amount and we are incredibly grateful for all the support we have been shown so far! The raffle will be drawn on 25th November at the Primrose Christmas Fayre – good luck to everybody who has already entered!

Classic Mini Open Evening 2017

Mini Spares Midlands, part of the David Manners Group based in Oldbury, are once again hosting their annual Classic Mini Open Evening on Tuesday 11th July. Owners and enthusiasts alike are invited to what promises to be another fantastic event. 
With a special guest appearance from Car SOS presenter and classic car lover Fuzz Townshend, attendees will have the opportunity to ask their burning restoration questions. The DMG Mini Experts will also be on hand throughout the night to offer help and advice on all things Mini. DMG are also offering trade discount on all Mini parts bought on the night. 

Although the event is held to coincide with the British Mini Club meet the event still attracts (and welcomes) non-members; Dave Hollis from the British Mini Club will be on hand to provide information on the club and assist visitors with signing up. 
Classic Car Insurers Footman James will also be on hand to offer handy tips & advice on insuring your Classic Mini.

Wood-fired Neapolitan style pizzas will once again be provided by Baked in Brick, cooked out of a converted Mini, alongside delicious home made cakes and hot drinks provided by DuCafe. There’s even a free drink on offer for the first fifty guests to arrive! 
There will be prizes awarded on the night for The Most Loved Mini, the Mini Most In Need Of Love, and the Furthest Travelled Mini. Prizes include tickets to upcoming Mini shows and subscriptions to Classic Car publications. 

The event takes place at the David Manners Group headquarters, 991 Wolverhampton Road, Oldbury, B69 4RJ from 6pm on Tuesday 11th July. Entry is free, and there is also a free drinks voucher on offer for the first fifty guests to arrive.
