A very sad day

Its with great sadness that I have to report another tragic death to the MINI community.

John Jinks, a member of the Lincolnshire Mini Club and a customer of ours was tragically killed earlier this week when his beloved Cooper S was in collision with another vehicle.

I would like to offer our condolences to Johns (Jinxsy) family and friends on hearing of this tragic accident - we are all totally stunned and shocked.

Hey Jinxsy have fun up there matey and say hi to John Cooper if you see him.

Here is the link to our local paper.

This is very sad and didn't want to read and run. I never met John but its a very sad thing when a life is snatched from the world. I wish to offer my condolences to his loved ones. x

I only spoke with him last week and saw his car at the weekend.

John was always laughing and full of fun - he will be sadly missed by his many friends.

Never met John but am very sad to hear of another loss to our community. The newspapr article portrays a lovely guy, who will be sorely missed by a lot of people. So young.

My thoughts are with anyone touched by this tragedy.
