DaLICK - Who's for ice cream?
WHO’s seen this years straw feature?
At the beginning of the year we were inundated with suggestions for this year's Straw Feature. By far the most popular suggestion was a feature to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Dr Who!
After a few discussions back in April between the Sadler’s (Snugburys Family) and Mike Harper from Harbrook Engineering we all decided a 35ft Dalek made from straw would look pretty cool!
The Dalek is now towering over our famous field and can be seen from the Nantwich - Chester A51 Road.
We believe it took around 700 man-hours to fabricate the steel frame, pack the straw and for the first time ever introduce moving parts and audio.
The feature is made from approximately 6 tons of straw and 5 tons of steel.
This year we have created a ‘DaLICK’ cone, which in on sale from our ice cream shop. A percentage of sales from these cones will go to Cancer Research UK.
We have chosen to sponsor Cancer Research UK this year in support of one of our key dairy team members Deb Nowak, who’s Father is currently undergoing treatment for bladder cancer.
