I spoke to Gemma Cartwright of POL via Facebook and over the telephone , on Saturday 28/11/2016 –
Here is their story, taken directly from the FB page :
”Pride Of Longbridge started in 2006 to mark the closure of MG Rover. Over the past seven years the event has got bigger and better.
A great chance for the community, enthusiasts, ex and now present work force to come together and celebrate the great that came out of Longbridge.
I could never of believed back in 06 how POL would grow. I have made many great partnerships and pleased to say Austin Federation help organise the event along side Rover Community Action Trust that have funded the event

Awaiting confirmation from Steve Turner in order to be accepted into the group 🙂
28/10/2016 : Myself and Gemma discussed my project and it appears I will be able to display the Art Car at the annual POL Meet @ Cofton Park, Gemma is now going to communicate with Olly at NAF to see if they can help raise awareness and possible fundraising options. Fingers crossed!
