Apologies, I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere, but any idea when the new visitor centre will be ready to welcome visitors?

I'm pretty sure that Covid has delayed matters and the factory statement says as much, but I was wondering if there was anything heard on the grapevine.

Cheers.

The official MMC statement taken from their site this evening - send them an email if you have a need to know.

Graham will likely give us the heads up on this when he is able to.

MORGAN COVID-19 STATEMENT
The Morgan Motor Company is operating a phased return to normal operation following its temporary closure in light of COVID-19.

As of 1 June, its UK Dealership network has reopened, including the factory’s own sales and aftersales departments, Morgan Works Malvern.

Car hire booking has also reopened, with dates available from now onward.

Factory tours, experience drives and other visitor experiences are set to begin from September with the opening of the all-new Morgan Experience Centre. Please email contact@morgan-motor.co.uk for further information

Bookings for factory tours, car hire and experience drives made directly though Morgan Motor Company for the period we are temporarily closed can be rescheduled.

Nothing I need to add - the official statement is the info I have.
We've just started to cover gate duty again - too many people just wandering in and around the factory with no pre-appointment.

Well, firstly, for the present we aren't using the buggy (that one is petrol) - can't easily get the necessary social distancing.
So, visitors sign in with us and whomever they have a meeting with will come down to the car park to collect them, just as we used to do when the VC was open, and will again I'm told.
Unfortunately John, the shelf is a little high, at least for eating from grin2 It also holds a puddle of water when it rains, so one has to go round corners rather gingerly so as not to soak passengers umbrella
Farm shop - ah yes, I must ask about the possibility of T-shirts from Hillers (no second 'i', my disabled pal keeps calling it Hilliers, too!). Must get up there soon (once the cam belt is done on the 4/4).
Steve (SBM) you're only jealous you didn't get to drive it!! laugh2
