Beddy Visits… Drighlington Primary School

Monday, April 30th, 2012

This week my cousin LinQy has been out on a school visit to Drighlington Primary School. He told me the boys and girls were so well behaved and listened to everything they were told.

Whilst he was there LinQy educated the children about the importance of road safety, especially around big trucks like us, the children were great at answering questions about road safety.

All of the children had an insight into the world from a driver’s birds eye view, they got to sit in the cab and some even got to blast LinQy’s horn!

LinQy had such a great time with the children and is excited for his next school visit.

Beddy Visits… Stonehenge

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Today I’ve been to the county of Wiltshire, whilst I was here I decided to visit the prehistoric monument Stonehenge, it’s one of the most famous sites in the world.

There are many ideas on when Stonehenge was first erected and who erected it as there were no written records many theories have been suggested. Most people believe that people first started building it over 5,000 years ago by dragging the stones into place. These days the monument belongs to the crown who at this present moment is Queen Elizabeth II.

There are many reason people believe the monument was made some believe for spiritual reasons some believe for astrology, but the mystery of Stonehenge for now will remain a mystery.

I think Stonehenge is an interesting and beautiful place to visit, I hope I get to come back here again.

Beddy Visits… Stoke On Trent

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Stoke on Trent was the birth place to Captain Edward John Smith. He was the captain of one of the worlds most famous ships the RMS Titanic. The Titanic was the largest passenger ship of her time and was deemed “virtually unsinkable” but on Sunday April 14th 1912 at 23.40pm The RMS Titanic hit an iceberg, within a few hours the Titanic had sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

One of the most famous stories surrounding the Titanic was the ships band played on as the ship was sinking trying to calm the passengers they stayed with the ship until the end. These men were very brave, I hope all of you are celebrating the maiden voyage and terrible short life of the RMS Titanic this week as it celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Beddy visits… Wensleydale

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Today I’m making deliveries in North Yorkshire, so while I’m here I thought I’d visit the Wensleydale cheese factory. I was very lucky to be able to watch a demonstration of how the farmers make the cheese. The cheese is made form recipes handed down from generation to generation, the factory keeps with tradition when it comes to making the cheese as a lot of the procedure is done by hand. I’ve bought a selection of cheeses there were so many to choose from, some had fruit in them, some spices and some smelt really cheesy.

On my way out of Wensleydale I saw a beautiful castle on a hill called Bolton Castle. The castle is famous for its use as a prison for Mary Queen of Scots. But unfortunately I don’t have enough time to go visit it I’ve got deliveries to make.

Happy Easter!

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Happy Easter everybody I hope the Easter bunny has left you lots of Easter eggs. We receive Easter eggs as the egg is a symbol of the start of new life, just as when the chick hatches out of the egg.

Easter is a very special event in the Christian diary. Christians are followers of Jesus Christ who lived about 2000 years ago. Christians believe that Jesus is the son of god, at Easter time Christians remember the last week of Jesus’ life.

I’ve got four days off delivering this week thanks to the Easter Holidays so I’m getting some much needed rest. Enjoy your Easter Holidays.
