“Well it’s better than doing a proper job!”
This was the exclamation of a representative looking down at me kneeling in the sand with trowel in hand whilst I finished off some details on a Dennis Falcon Dustcart. Mike Hurst from Areca Design had asked us to pop down to make a replica for Mr Falcon as an ice breaker and talking point at the Waste Recycling Show in Peighton.
It certainly did it’s job as not many had seen a dust cart in sand before! It rained and blew plenty but Mick looked after me and supplied me with plenty of tea and cream scones with Strawberries. He also shoveled a great deal of sand so well done there!
The greatest achievement for me was when one of the Reps said: “It’s an Olympus Short Wheel Base!” And so it was.
