Latitude 2019 Summer

With funding from Norfolk Community Foundation and Ireland, we converted the now working International Space Wagon, adhering solar panels to its wagon roof and with the technical help of Chris (Rocket Man), we went to Lattitude July 2019.

 

Summer 2020

Sam arrived. Sam’s been working on bikes all his working life. Fresh from University of East Anglia he went to work for Dr Bike in Norwich. Most recently he’s been running an amazing recycling project in Morocco, upcycling abandoned Dutch bikes in Marakesh. Stranded here since Lockdown, we enjoyed his expertise for a day working with Lewin. Sam was impressed with Lewin’s bike knowledge: ‘He understands the raw principles of bike mechanics and that’s as much hand as brain. His hands know how to investigate mechanical things. ‘

Here’s a short movie of the day
