Peter’s motor treat

MG car owners surprised a fellow enthusiast when they arrived in convoy at a Shropshire nursing home. Retired mechanic Peter Hough, a resident at Oldbury Grange Nursing Home in Bridgnorth, was delighted to see members of the MGs Shropshire Club and their gleaming motors. Peter, aged 75, used to be an active and valued member of the club, attending events and helping to organise short breaks. He has owned several MGs over the years.

His wife Margaret, who arranged the visit, explains, “It was a lovely treat for Peter to see the cars as he’s always had a passion for them and they brought back great memories. I’d like to thank the club for this gesture which we really appreciated.”

Club members proudly displayed a range of models and joined the couple for tea and cakes. Other residents and staff also admired the vehicles and chatted to their owners. Oldbury Grange’s Mandy Bullock says, “It’s important for the people in our care to continue feeling part of the community. Visits like this are uplifting and we encourage them!”
