Abingdon to Create an MG -Comemorative Park

The Abingdon Town Council is planing to develop a park to memorialize the connection between the town and the MG Car Company. According to the Oxford Mail:

Abingdon Town Council plans to include a sculpture of an iconic MG with information boards explaining the town’s links with the company.

Paving stones in the octagonal shape of the MG badge will also be laid out.

The scheme has not yet been costed, but the park will be created on land the council owns at the corner of Marcham Road and Drayton Road, not far from the former MG factory site in Cemetery Road.

I would expect that MG owners all over the world will be asked to contribute to the realization of this project. The full story can be found here.
