About: MMCB’s First Morris Minor Open Day 2016

Morris Minor Open Day 2016

Firstly everyone at DMG would like to thank all the people that came to our Morris Minor open day on Saturday 9th April and made it a success, we couldn’t be happier with the response we had and we will definitely be looking to do it again next year.


We’d also like to thank local acoustic artists John Langford, David Coughlin and Billy Spake Mon for coming along to entertain our guests on the evening and Alison Elvins from Ducafe for keeping everyone provided with refreshments, which were very much enjoy by our customers and staff. Also Julia Attwood for providing information on insurance and Footman James for their initiative to promote young drivers.

We received some brilliant feedback from our customers

A very good afternoon, a bit chilly and damp later, but it’s April and Britain so about right. A very good turn out, look forward to next year.

Many thanks to the team who organised it all. – Martyn Westley”

“Thank you for having us. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and thank you for the goodie bag, drink and the warm welcome. – Cameron Shaw”

“Please bring it down south- Jordan Partridge”


Finally thank you to our staff for making arranging the event and making sure it all ran smoothly. (Joy, Vikki, Simon, Mike Lennon, Jack Weston, Paul Grainger, Kevin Emery, Michael Hadley and Kate Manners)
