He said: “It’s truly amazing to see so many faced from the past and was a joy to recall so many memories.”

Club manager Andy Knott welcomed the group and remarked how pleased the car club was to run this annual gathering.

He said: “It is something special to see so many ex-workers gathered here, laughing and enjoying the day, as much as we enjoy the wonderful MGs that they built in Abingdon for over 50 years.”
