For those of you have not seen our old Managing Director, Hugh Ruding-Bryan for some while he is looking very well in 2010 and looking about 20 years younger than he actually must be! He really has not changed!
Hugh Ruding-Bryan and his fellow directors, John Boileau and Philip Hudson together with Paul Rendell, Robin Marett, Richard Backhouse, Viv Benest, Robert Kendall and Linda Chessel (formerly Belcher) all met up and planned the reunion which took place in September 2010. My thanks also go to Paul Mellon and Keith Rhoods.
2010 was the twentieth year since closure! Sadly some key players were no longer with us and some had moved far away.

The reunion took place as planned at the Elmgrove Hall in Walton-On-Thames on 11th September 2010 and over EIGHTY (80) people turned up for the event which was paid for by the Directors and Management Team. Some people had come all the way from the USA and Ireland especially to attend the event.
Karl Barton kindly requested that both the Volkswagen and Audi brands donate some prizes for the raffle and I am very grateful to them both for their donation of some fabulous branded prizes.
A BIG thank you to all who helped and attended for making it such a pleasant and enjoyable evening.
