Geoffrey Clifton-Brown. MP for The Cotswolds, will celebrate both National ‘Ride to Work Day’ next Monday (18 June) and the fact that Watsonian Squire Limited, a successful Cotswolds business, are celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012 by arriving at the Palace of Westminster in a motorcycle side car.

The company first as Watsonian, and then as Watsonian Squire following a merger in 1984, has been producing great British sidecars since 1912, surviving two world wars, economic boom and bust and a major factory fire in 1930.

Now located in Moreton-in-Marsh, Watsonian Squire currently produces approximately 200 units per year, with 60% of these being exported. Japan is one of the company’s largest markets.

On Monday Mr Clifton-Brown will be driven from his home in Putney to the Houses of Parliament arriving at approximately 10.30am.
