The factory move to Crawley released the company’s leaf sweeper and, with a thought to recycling and reusing, it was given a new home at the Crawley Mariners Yacht Club.

The club has a large dinghy park in a heavily wooded area where fallen leaves had been a real problem to them.

Crawley Mariners Yacht Club, which has been in existence since 1963, was founded by sailing enthusiasts working on Crawley’s Manor Royal Industrial Estate and is based at Hedgecourt Lake between Crawley and Felbridge.
