Check out some of the latest news from Lodge Hill Garage...
Lodge Hill Garage was established back in 2003 when owner Peter Jewson took the business over. Although it had been operating as a car garage, it was in need of some serious renovation.
Peter proceeded to rebuild the garage from scratch, replacing the floors, walls, glass windows and adding offices and workshops, a coffee lounge and a floodlit canopy. In 2011 Peter placed a replica spitfire plane on the roof of the garage in order to create a landmark in Abingdon and to honour the brave female spitfire pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary, who flew planes in World War 2 with limited training and in dangerous conditions.
Every year at the end of April in the UK there is a National Drive It Day, where classic car owners across the country are encouraged to drive their vehicles for a day to celebrate Britain's transport heritage at its finest.
This year marked the fourth anniversary for Lodge Hill Garage to provide a venue for local classic car owners to meet and compare notes with fellow owners and enthusiasts.
The event exceeded all expectations with over sixty cars arriving on the day.

In 2011, owner of Lodge Hill Garage, Peter Jewson launched a campaign to raise money for a national monument to recognise the bravery of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) Girls during World War 2 and honour them, some of whom lost their lives delivering the aircraft to the battle stations.
The fundraising campaign was launched at a special event on Wednesday 8th June where Lodge Hill unveiled the life size spitfire replica, which they have placed on the garage roof adjacent to the showroom in tribute to these brave women. The day included a 1940s style lunch, 1940s music as well as fly-past by a Spitfire and a special appearance by Joy Lofthouse and Mary Ellis, two of the first female pilots to fly a Spitfire during World War 2.
