BMF Royal appointment

1 of 1

The bigwigs were out in force at the BMF’s new £550,000 HQ this week for the official opening.

His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester did the honours on Wednesday, October 13, at the organisation’s new offices. They house 15 full time staff at Enderby, Leicestershire.

The Duke – a regular at the BMF’s annual Peterborough show – was welcomed by the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Lady Gretton, JP, the Chairman of Leicester City Council, Mr P G Winkless and the BMF team – headed by new BMF chairman Leon Mannings.

The BMF moved from its Leicester city offices in May this year.

The Duke said how pleased he was to see the BMF with a permanent HQ and added: “The BMF has proved its validity over the years and these offices show a confidence in the BMF’s future. I wish the BMF well in continuing to provide a service to everyone who enjoys travelling by motorcycle.”
