'The nostalgia was incredible' - praise for Pride of Longbridge from 97-year-old car enthusiast

Bromsgrove Editorial 29th Apr, 2023   0

‘THE NOSTALGIA it brought back was incredible’ – those were the words of a 97-year-old who was given a surprise visit to the Pride of Longbridge Rally.

Bob Guest from Solihull was delighted he was able to get up close to cars he once owned including an Austin A30, a Morris Minor, and an Austin Allegro at the Cofton Park show thanks to Blossomfield Grange care home staff.

He said: “I had a fantastic day at the Pride of Longbridge Car Show.

“The nostalgia that it brought back was incredible.”

Residents at the Worcester Way care home are encouraged to submit wishes no matter how big or small, whether they’re related to something they’ve never been able to do, or something they’d like to do again as part of the home’s wishing tree project.

Jo Bennett, general manager at Blossomfield Grange, said: “We had a wonderful time at the Pride of Longbridge event, and Bob loved every minute of it.




“Bob is a car-fanatic and always shares fond memories of the classic cars he had in his younger years.

“We’re delighted we were able to take him to see the cars and create a memorable afternoon full of reminiscence – the joy in his eyes when he saw the exact same models he once owned said it all.”
