We like to be a little bold and think outside the box here at PH... Which is exactly why we've got another brand new venue lined up for our Sunday Service calendar. 19th August will see us heading to JCB's World HQ to have a morning of childish fun, sitting in diggers, and learning the origins of this iconic brand. Think of it as a PH school trip.
It's not every day you get to head to the world headquarters of one of the top three construction equipment manufacturers in the world, so to help understand how a company this huge undertakes its business, we'll be having guided tours - called The Story of JCB - where you'll get a behind the scenes view of what goes on. The tour contains many of JCB's landmark achievements, including the diesel world speed record car from 2006, and 1962's 3C backhoe loader, which took digger technology to new heights. It says here. We visited JCB earlier this year and can confirm how interesting this tour is - Ben and I didn't want to leave! In the car park there will also, of course, be the fantastic array of PHers cars in attendance to gawp at...
To book onto the Story of JCB tour you'll have to contact Sara Morgan at JCB on firstname.lastname@example.org; however, they have a factory shut down starting 23rd July until 10th August, so bookings will have to take place this week or week commencing 13th August. The tour will cost £5 per person and all proceeds will be going to charity.
So, if you fancy an unusual but very fun morning out, we highly recommend you coming to join us! Get yourself signed up to the calendar here.
See you there!
