A Slice of the Action!

What a fantastic first Coffee & Classics morning here at DMG!
It was a very successful morning and we raised almost £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Thank you to everyone that baked or bought cakes and to our wonderful customers for stopping by and supporting the event.
We even had a visit from our very own Mary Berry who judged the cakes and Fuzz Townshend popped in to show his support too.

Preserving a British Classic

We received a fantastic newspaper clipping from 1991 that reported on our very own Morris Minor expert Mike Lennon!

This great news item from Classic Motoring told the story of how Mike played an important role in preserving one of Britain’s most popular cars.

We are hosting our first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September!

Why not stop by in your classic (or just have a nose at everybody else’s!) and fuel up on coffee and cake.

Pop in between 10am-12pm and enjoy a cup of coffee or slice of cake, lovingly made by the DMG staff, and support this fantastic cause.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.

David is ‘thrilled’ by Lyn’s novel new hobby!

David Manners was thrilled that a member of his team has been pursuing a very successful hobby outside of work. Lyn J. Greatrex has been a budding author for the last few years and has successfully published her ‘Hackers’ series of thriller books. David was delighted when Lyn signed his very own personal copies of these great novels.

Mini Restoration Project with Practical Classics

We’re delighted to have teamed up with Practical Classics to help restore this rather special Mini, once belonging to Rowan Atkinson’s son!

We’ve already delivered several boxes of parts to the Practical Classics workshop, and we can’t wait to see the finished result – the aim being to restore it as closely as possible to Mr Bean’s iconic 1977 mini.

Much of the restoration work is being completed live on stage at the NEC Classic Motor Show in November, so be sure to book your tickets to come and visit us there!
