Measham celebrates its 6,000th auction

BCA Measham has celebrated its 6,000 sale. The event was marked on Friday at a sale featuring stock from Boots, CD Bramall, Halfords, Hartwells, Nissan Finance, Pendragon, Peugeot and Vauxhall.

The seeds of Measham Motor Sales were sown by George Anthony Hill in 1937 when he bought a house, derelict garage and petrol forecourt.

At the start of the Second World War he was commissioned by the War Office to supply them with cars but when his services were no longer required he hit upon the idea of selling his stock by auction. The first auction sale in Measham was in 1941.
