1948 - 2016: Foster & Heanes Ltd - A History to be Proud Of
Foster & Heanes Ltd in Dogmersfield, near Fleet HampshireFoster & Heanes Ltd was established in the late forties as a petrol forecourt with sales & repairs, by Jim Heanes & Jack Foster. They took on a BMC franchise and in the early 60's started MOT testing. In the mid 70's the business was bought by Terry & Marion Minter who ran it as an engineering company & maintained the car repair business & MOT station. After Terry's untimely death in the 90's, his wife Marion carried on running the garage until 2010 when Bob & Jackie Ravenscroft took over the business. Their aim is to build on the good work of their predecessors and today it continues to thrive as a busy MOT, car service and repair centre.
Established garage since 1940s - all garage services and repairsThe petrol pumps are long gone & apart from a few new buildings & some other businesses which also occupy the site, the site remains largely unchanged.
Recent additions are mostly modern equipment, but a new workshop was built to increase the number of cars that can be worked on at the same time.
You can see that the views in 1952 have changed due to the growth of trees and shrubs, making the first photo impossible to recreate today.
