Longbridge history recalled in a new organisation

New Name behind ‘Pride of Longbridge’

The co-organiser of the annual ‘Pride of Longbridge’ event and the Longbridge Centenary Celebration rally in 2005 has a new name, a new logo designed by automotive specialist MPiD Design and a new committee.

Formerly known as ‘The Federation of Austin Clubs Registers and Associations’ it will now simply be ‘Austin & Longbridge Federation’, or ‘ALF’.

The organisation’s web site also has a new domain name: www.austinlongbridgefederation.co.uk

 New Chairman John Baker, a retired Longbridge development engineer, commented, “we want to reflect the fact that we cater for all Longbridge products and although the factory was founded by Herbert Austin in 1905, it has produced cars, commercials, power plants and aeroplanes using a huge variety of badges. Our new name and logo reflects this.” Well known author and staunch enthusiast of Longbridge’s products, the Reverend Colin Corke, is ALF’s Vice Chairman.
