A huge thank you to Classic Car Weekly for running a story this week on SCOTTYS classic car parts Supplier Library; how we and many loyal enthusiasts are working hard to create a means of supporting The Association of Heritage Engineers in delivering skills hand-down opportunities to the next generation.
It was a surprise for me today as I strolled back from the paper shop reading my weekly copy. However these days you can obtain a copy in many ways and links to do so can be found within this post.
If your eyesight is anything like mine then reading the article above will be tricky so here is the article.
NEW BRITISH DIRECTORY SUPPORTS APPRENTICES
Supplier library intended to promote the UK’s classic car businesses.
The owner of a youth training workshop for classics has drawn up a list of specialists that are open for business during lockdown.
SCOTTYS Retro Workshop supplier library aims to promote hard to find suppliers of Classic Car Parts. Suppliers are encouraged to sponsor links to their own websites; 50 percent of the annual fee is gifted to The Association of Heritage Engineers (AoHE) to help finance its work promoting and encouraging the handing down of practical skills.
Dominic Taylor-Lane of AOHE said:
“It is fantastic to be working with SRW Scottys Retro Workshop; the contribution to our project is extremely generous.”
“The AOHE, of which SCOTTY has been a member from the outset, tried to support his original training scheme into which he obviously put a huge amount of time and effort”
“Working with SCOTTY we hope that supplier businesses will move away from corporation-based websites and help him and us to support the next generation of UK mobile heritage craftspeople and artisans who will ultimately become their new customers “
