Wolseley Register celebrates 50th year at Wolseley UK's head office

Published:  20 August, 2014

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of classic car association Wolseley Register, members from across the world brought their cars for a 'pit stop' at Wolseley UK's head office.

Thirty members were greeted by managing director Steve Ashmore and Sir Charles Wolseley, Patron of the Wolseley Register. Sir Wolseley was accompanied by Lady Wolseley and the town Mayor of Royal Lemington Spar, John Knight.

The event was a chance for members to meet up with their cars before moving on to the Register’s National Rally at Nuffield Place in Oxfordshire.

Geoff Craggs, chairman of the Wolseley Register said: “It’s always a highlight for us to visit Wolseley UK as we value the historic link between our two organisations. I know our members enjoyed the stop-off and it was nice to be greeted by some important guests to celebrate a very special milestone for the Register.”

Mr Ashmore added: “We were pleased to welcome Wolseley Register to our head office and support the club’s birthday celebrations. Wolseley cars are beautiful machines and seeing so many of them together was a real treat - not just for me but for all the employees based here. I’m proud of the role Wolseley played in shaping the British car industry and I enjoyed celebrating our heritage with Wolseley Register on their special anniversary year.”
