Cherished cavalcade is a motoring treat at nursing home
MG car owners surprised a fellow enthusiast when they arrived in convoy at a Shropshire nursing home to show their support.
Retired mechanic Peter Hough, a resident at Morris Care’s Oldbury Grange Nursing Home in Bridgnorth, was delighted to see members of the MGs Shropshire Club and their cherished, 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, said: “It was a lovely treat for Peter to see the cars as he has 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.
Mandy Bullock, Social Life Coordinator at Oldbury Grange, said: “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! We are always ready to liaise with families to support our residents’ interests and welcome such events.”
