Meadens Skoda in Brockenhurst have just opened a new showroom next door to their previous premises in Brockenhurst. I was hired to perform some magic for friends, family and clients. The official opening was performed by footballing legends Matt le Tissier and Francis Benali. Matt Le Tissier and Francis Benali cut the ribbon and then joined guests enjoying refreshments and touring the premises. The family owned business has been in the motor industry for 25 years, opening their first dealership in Sway. However, with the Skoda brand going from strength to strength and record breaking sales in both the UK and worldwide, it wasn’t long before Meadens outgrew this site and began looking for a new home. “It has taken 7 months to complete the works” comments Peter Sexton (Director) “and it’s been a real labour of love. We were very excited to have obtained such an amazing site and wanted to maximize it’s potential and I think we’ve achieved this with the help of Raymond Brown Building Ltd As Skoda’s frst car to offer seven seats, thanks to its optional third row, the Skoda Kodiaq can adapt to suit everyones needs.
