The Rotarians were greeted by Chris Lucas, founder of the firm, who told the Rotarians that he started his career with Lynx Engineering in St. Leonards but, approaching his fifties, decided to set up a specialist Jaguar restoration outfit on his own. His reputation for top quality restoration meant he had plenty of customers knocking on his door so much so that he outgrew his premises on a farm near Woods Corner, Dallington in the wilds of East Sussex. After taking on a partner, Chris moved the business to its current site which had for 500 years previously been producing charcoal, which meant that the premises had to be adapted somewhat for its new use!
The visiting Rotarians were really impressed and amazed by the variety of skills used and drooled over the host of cars that were being worked on, as well as seeing some spectacular Jaguars from a bygone age which had been transformed back to their former glory.
At the end of their visit, Bexhill Rotary President James Slinn thanked Chris Lucas and his expert team for their kind hospitality on what was a memorable visit.
