FU­TURE SE­CURE FOR HERITAGE CEN­TRE

SPREAD OF UN­TRUTHS CAUSES UNDUE WORRY

Performance Vauxhall - - NEWSFEED -

The ru­mour mill re­gard­ing PSA Group’s plans for Vauxhall’s pop­u­lar Heritage Cen­tre has been work­ing over­time these past few weeks (not helped by some in the mo­tor­ing press mis­rep­re­sent­ing the facts), so let’s set the record straight.

FACT

PSA is mov­ing the Heritage Cen­tre to a new site in Lu­ton fol­low­ing the com­pany’s de­ci­sion to re­lo­cate Vauxhall staff from Grif­fin House to a more mod­ern fa­cil­ity. Grif­fin House is an old build­ing which costs a huge amount to heat and main­tain. Fur­ther­more, the prop­erty is cur­rently un­der­utilised due to be­ing only part­oc­cu­pied by Vauxhall staff.

FIC­TION

PSA is sell­ing the con­tents of the Vauxhall Heritage Cen­tre.

FACT

There will be no forced re­dun­dan­cies as a con­se­quence of the changes tak­ing place.

FIC­TION

PSA is get­ting rid of all staff based in Lu­ton, in­clud­ing Heritage Cen­tre tech­ni­cians, An­drew Boddy and Terry Forder.

FACT

PSA is the dot­ing cus­to­dian of heritage fleets for all of its ma­jor brands. In fact, the cars in the ma­jor­ity of PSA’s col­lec­tions get far more use than those stored at the Heritage Cen­tre! PSA has no wish to see Vauxhall’s ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tion of ve­hi­cles van­ish and recog­nises the im­por­tance in keep­ing it in the man­u­fac­turer’s home town.

FIC­TION

PSA has no care for Vauxhall’s rich his­tory.

FACT

No mat­ter how many times you ask, you’re not go­ing to be able to buy the Heritage Cen­tre’s Lo­tus Carl­ton for 50p.

FIC­TION

PSA wants to sell the Heritage Cen­tre col­lec­tion dirt cheap.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to the re­lo­ca­tion of the Heritage Cen­tre, its con­tents and the staff at Grif­fin House will fol­low in forth­com­ing edi­tions of Per­for­mance Vauxhall mag­a­zine (sub­scribe at bit.ly/ sub­scribepv). Un­til then, it’s business as usual in Lu­ton!

You’re in with a chance of bag­ging your­self a Lo­tus Carl­ton for 50p.
