Tell us a bit about your business.
The business was set up by John Riley and Mike Bryant in 1983 and has been a loyal customer of Allparts since that day. Mike’s daughter Cindy runs the garage for them as they are both semi-retired. When the business started off they worked out of one unit and soon expanded into taking on a second unit and then another 10 years ago, all on the same site. They’re a well-respected and trusted business offering all makes MoT, service and repair. A member of the Bosch car service network since 2004, they work to very high standards and invest heavily in training for their staff with them attaining ATA accreditation.

What was your reaction when you won?
To say that I was overjoyed would be an understatement! It truly is a dream come true as I have a genuine passion in historical aviation.

What do you think it will be like flying over the white cliffs of Dover in a Spitfire?
It will be incredible and a really fantastic experience and one that I’m very much looking forward to.

When are you going?
I have registered with Red Letter Days and I am looking to do it in September as I would like to link it into The Battle of Britain to make this even more special. I feel that this will really be appropriate and am looking to tie this in accordingly.

Why do you choose The Parts Alliance for your steering & suspension?
We’ve been using them for years and always liked the product and support. We have a good relationship with the Delphi rep, Neal Pegler who comes in with Ben from Allparts from time to time and is always very helpful.
