We had a fantastic day Graham. I started off by helping take provisions into the kitchen area.
The Splinter Group "plus" turned up, and I don't know what the rest of the tour made of us, but we had a great time. Ian never stopped talking, and neither did we..........
Pics to follow.
Such a laugh and three mugs of tea, plus great company!

Guys, great to meet you all again at the factory. It was a pleasure to take you around. I could see Steve Morris have a double take to work out who was the tour guide taking the tour, as he recognised the old hands and other familiar faces on the tour.

One of the questions that came up was regarding the manufacturer of the Plus Six platform. Graham had previously unconfirmed that they were made by Fablink in Northampton. This has now been confirmed that Fablink are making the platform to Morgan’s design.

We should do that again at least once this year, and maybe I'll get time for lunch next time.

I had to get back to manhandle a compressed air cylinder with SiL. It was a lot bigger than it looked on ebay....

Kids eh!

Compressed air cylinder? You taking up diving? 🤣

It was great meeting up and yes it should be an annual trip! When I left the factory 18 months ago I really started my walk away from Morgan and didn’t see myself going back. Well....I felt as though I could have slotted right back in even though the atmosphere has changed somewhat since I was there. Not sure I’d be happy wearing the safety waistcoat with Tour Guide emblazoned on it though!

And I probably shouldn’t have sat in that Plus 8 🙄

He's got a workshop with various things which need an air supply. So he upgraded to a petrol compressor, which was bigger than expected, but because the cylinder hasn't been tested for a long time, he got hold of a tested cylinder. When it arrived it was about six feet tall on its legs, so took quite a bit of persuasion to lay on a wheeled pallet for moving. We got there in the end, but I didn't expect such exertion yesterday!
