Past & Present Staff with Foden Truck

Homecoming of Foden Truck

For a period in the middle of the 20th century, Laxey Glen Mills public image was supported strongly by the regular appearance throughout the Island of their white Foden flat trucks. The trucks were invariably heavily laden with sacks of flour or animal feed but fell out of favour as the manufacturers developed new models and the Mill turned to other delivery vehicles.
A local enthusiast has secured one of the original trucks and, with considerable attention to detail, has refurbished the vehicle exactly as it appeared in the 1960s. During the Millís anniversary celebrations, the Foden was the centre of attention and will bring back many memories for villages and retired staff.
