Manor Park and Hempstead Fields Residents’ Association 

This is a brilliant local scheme where shops and other businesses give discounts to Members who have a Membership card.

Some of you might like to copy the idea, or even join us!

Feel free to ask for details.


A local garage joins the Residents’ Association Shoppers Discount Scheme.

Pit Stop Garage, which is based on the Bellbrook industrial estate (Unit 2, Panhard Buildings in Bell Lane), is offering Manor Park and Hempstead Fields Resident Association members a useful discount on car repairs and valeting:

  • 10% off labour (minimum spend £50) and
  • 10% off valeting

Paul Sparks, Chairman of the Association said;

“ We are really pleased to welcome the Pit Stop Garage to our already successful discount scheme.

The Association is always looking at ways to support local businesses and with Pit Stop joining the scheme we now have 24 businesses offering our members a useful discount on High Street goods, luxury items and recreation as well as professional and trade services services.


This yet another good reason for people living on Manor Park or Hempstead Fields to join the Association!’

About Lyn

LYN FUNNELL CV (well, sort of!) Lyn had very successful careers as an Air Hostess, Sales Rep, (she was one of only a couple of women. She beat all the men regularly, becoming the Top Rep in the UK, and 2nd in the world.) And then Catering took over. She did everything from the washing-up, to Silver Service Waitress, and Chef.
