In the April 2016 ASOC newsletter 331 ( page 10, Membership Secretary's Report for 2016), Jill states, talking about fewer members resulting from  a change in procedure for introducing new members to ASOC via Marquis :

.".......this coincided with the move of Marquis HQ from Hampshire to Lancashire"



I must have missed this. Marquis website still shows the HQ at Lower Upham in Hampshire. Where have they gone ?

The Newsletter is from the Autosleeper Owners Club not the Forum.

The company address for Marquis is at Willersey, the HQ contact address is in Hampshire but the central administration unit is now located in Lancashire at Preston - I guess the nominal HQ will always be where Mike Crouch has his office.

Sorry Peter, I accidentally  got the word " forum" between  ASOC and " newsletter". I' d just been looking at the ASOC website to see if they had anything about the move.  I've now removed the word " forum" to clarify my post. I know they are not the same thing.

I didn't realise Marquise was now administered from Preston: do you know when this happened ?

They have plenty of space at Preston and if they are paying heavily in the south for property it makes sense to move north and contain operating costs.

Suppose all the registration numbers will be PNs now instead of HXs

It was a few months ago, I know because the ASOC membership secretary lives in the vicinity and has been able to visit them in their new location.

Thanks Peter. I,ve not seen it mentioned in club or commercial magazines which is interesting.

We were thinking along the same lines Roger. We always notice fellow HX owners - on our 4 th now- but don't think we will with PN owners.
