Yes Congratulations one and all.
I dare say that without your contributions there'd be far fewer Bongo enthusiasts,
and a few less Bongo's travelling the Globe. =D>

Were all still around and still with the same bongo Mike, all be it with the conversion in storage for now, our other hobby means we have to travel allover the uk every weekend carrying equipment and team members around so not had much time to bongo in the last two years.
Gonna catch up with some people at the beginning of december.

For 2017 we had an even more deserving recipient, as Bongoplod well knows! Congratulations to Den from New Dawn Conversions. Here's why he received his award:

New Dawn Conversions have an enviable reputation for quality camper units and other equipment, coupled with an excellent record for customer service. So much so that customers will travel from all over the UK to their workshop in the West Midlands. One such customer was retired policeman Brian from Wigan (known as “Bongoplod” on the forum) who went to pick up his converted Bongo in late January. Arriving, he spotted that a table had not been incorporated as planned, so Den told Brian to make himself scarce while the missing item was fitted. But while he was waiting for the table to be installed he was suddenly taken ill and had to be rushed to hospital.

Den phoned us at the club offices to see if we had Brian's home phone number (which we did), Brian's wife was informed, and she rushed down to the West Midlands to be with Brian. Den offered to put her up, but she eventually stayed in a B&B. It transpired that Brian had suffered an aneurysm in the chest. Only quick action from Den and his team saved Brian’s life!

This all goes to show what a wonderful community there is behind this Bongo ownership lark. If it hadn’t been for quick action by Den and his team, Brian wouldn’t be with us anymore. Or, as some wag said, if Den had done his job properly in the first place, Brian would have collapsed on the M6 on his way home!

A remarkable tale and Den & co should feel rightly proud.

Also a Bongo owner himself and a true Gentleman..... =D> ....and all his team who are a pleasure to meet... :)

Nothing is too much trouble for Den and his team and the reputation for customer service is well deserved.... :wink: :wink:

I have no other reason to say this as he has done no work for me but to meet him was a pleasure......and he would not pay me any commission for this post... :roll: .. :lol:

A well deserved award....Dennis you earned it... :D
Alan...still plodding on....!
