THE annual reunion of Longbridge's Austin Motor Company will take place at Greenlands Social Club on December 16.

The event will be open to all former Longbridge employees from 12.30pm, offering a chance to join with old workmates and reminisce about days spent at the once-famous factory.

An Austin History Roadshow Exhibition will be on display, with an expert team on hand to answer questions about 100 years of Austin history from 1905 to 2005.

The roadshow aims to eventually open a museum to display the vast collection of information and historic items amassed over the years.

Historian Keith Woodfield, from the roadshow team, said: "We want this history to be left for future generations and particularly Brummies, highlighting the tremendous contributions this company made in two World Wars, making anything from small bullets to giant aircraft."
