    The Annual London Lunch this year was attended by 89 Fellows and their guests.  Although the numbers were slightly down on last year, what we lost in quantity we certainly made up for in quality.  Our picture gallery shows some of the guests enjoying the free drink reception in the bar before lunch and a universal tick of approval was given to the provision of the name badges.

    5 Fellows joined 55 members of the long standing Motor Trade Golf Society at the prestigious West Hill Golf Club in Surrey on Thursday 3rd July. It is the second year that the FMI have joined the MTGS on one of their days and it is hoped that we will continue to do so in the future. This was a wonderful opportunity as they play on the some of the best golf courses in the country and as such are difficult to gain access to play without the introduction from the likes of the MTGS.
