YOUNGSTERS from Rednal Hill Infant School found out about Longbridge’s motoring heritage when they were given a tour of MG.

Pride of Longbridge (POL) took the 90 children to learn about the proud history, meeting enthusiasts who shared with them the part the factory played in the area’s past.

The MG sales team and technicians answered questions whilst New Frankley Parish Councillors Andy Cartwright and Ian Bruckshaw provided facts.

Pride of Longbridge organiser Gemma Cartwrighte MBE said a great day was had by all.

“Sharing these kind of memories is exactly what POL is about – keeping the history alive and teaching our children what POL is about.

A year one teacher from Rednal Hill Infant School said the children were inspired by the visit.

“We want to say a very big thank you to POL for all their hard work and time.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and many said ‘it was the best day ever’.

“It was so lovely the representatives shared their passion and expertise about MG and the local area and I am sure it will inspire our children in many years to come.”

The annual Pride of Longbridge Rally takes place at Cofton Park from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, April 13.

The event is free.
