Friends ReunitedStaff at Lancaster Insurance were delighted to be able to help one of their customers surprise her husband for their 40th wedding anniversary by reuniting him with the car that they had used on their wedding day. Zoe Snell was desperate to track down the MG Midget that carried her and her husband, Terry, to and from the ceremony almost 40 years ago. With the help of Lise Alexander-Smith, Underwriting Manager at Lancaster Insurance, Zoe managed to contact the current owner, Graham Bird, and secretly arranged to reunite her husband with the little 1966 classic which still holds so many memories for them both. The reunion took place on Saturday 30 August, and Zoe had her husband Terry completely fooled until the last minute.

Zoe said: ‘Terry has always wondered what happened to the car and he has been desperately trying to track it down himself for years. It was really exciting for me to arrange it all covertly and to surprise him this weekend. We are so happy it has been in the same hands for such a long time, and without a doubt respected and loved. I want to offer my thanks to Graham for making it all possible; it was lovely to see it again and we had a wonderful day.’

Graham said: ‘I bought the car in 1979 for my late wife. I restored it in 1986 and have been running it ever since, though it’s off the road and needs some work these days, which I’ll undertake as a retirement project. I was happy for Zoe to surprise Terry with it as it’s given me so much pleasure over the years. It’s nice to meet a previous owner and be able to give something back. The car is very special to me.’
