Our Next Meeting

'Swindon and the Motor Trade 1950-1980'
Speaker: Alan Nix.
This is a presentation that describes and illustrates ‘the joys of motoring’, set against the many changes in work and leisure in Swindon and the surrounding towns and villages between 1950 and 1980.
With 150 slides, the cars, the customers, the family business and the buying and selling are all illustrated by Alan Nix in a fascinating way.
