In 1977, BMW opened its show room on Wellsway (now Carphone Warehouse and Majestic Wine). For the opening ceremony, the company brought a VIP from Germany – Frauline Dagmar Winkler, otherwise known as Miss Germany 1977. She landed by helicopter on the school playing fields and the boys were given time off to greet her. The following four photos, courtesy Lewis Baker, record her arrival.
