Chance to inspect Morse’s famous Jaguar at Bridgnorth birthday celebration.

Hello everyone and welcome to a short post about Morse’s car MK 2 Jaguar.

I found this article in the Shropshire Star newspaper.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. Take care and enjoy the article.

The vehicle will be featured in Classic Motor Cars’ (CMC) birthday party for the famous marque, at its Bridgnorth headquarters on June 1.

“It is the most recognisable Mark 2 Jaguar in the world, “ said managing director, Nigel Woodward. “We are delighted that we have been able to get the car to star in our celebrations.”

MK 2 Jaguar owners are being invited to take part in a special birthday concourse, but all classic car owners are invited to take their cars and take part.

Mr Woodward added: “Last year we celebrated the 25th anniversary of CMC with a special birthday party and the response from classic car owners and the public was tremendous, with more than 2,000 people attending.

“We want this year’s party to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Mk 2 to be even bigger and better and we have arranged a variety of special activities for the whole family on the day.”

Activities will range from a motoring art fair, specialists dealing in automobilia, a classic toy fair, children’s entertainment, tours of CMC’s restoration workshops and the nearby Marches training academy, live music, club stands and local food and drink providers.

The party will start at 10am and run until 4pm.

Mr Woodward said: “If you are a dealer in automobilia, motoring art and prints, old toys, motoring books, Jaguar memorabilia, etc, we would love to hear from you. We have both indoor and outdoor pitches and will be recreating the successful toy fair that we ran last year.

He added: “We really want to see as many MK 2s from around the country attending the celebrations and they will get a great reception.”

Car owners who would like to register to attend, or dealers who would like to book a pitch or a table, should e-mail Lucy Smallman at

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
