Duffields attend Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show August 18, 2016

Duffields South West attended the Gillingham and Shaftesbury show on the 17th August on a very sunny day. We had a really busy stand and the catering staff had to work hard to keep up with the constant demand which left us with no food at the end. This show has been unlucky with wet weather during recent years so it was great for everyone involved that this year’s event was on one of the hottest days; In fact many people felt it was too hot!!!

Renovated 1947 Duffield Sentinel Lorry comes back home July 11, 2016

GWW 190 is a Sentinel DV 4/4 truck built in 1947

Originally owned new by John Smiths Brewery it was bought in 1959 by Duffields and was one of the first in the UK to be fitted with bulk blowing equipment. It worked delivering feed until 1968.

It was sold for £40 to the uncle of the eventual restorer and worked on his farm in Bedfordshire during harvest for the next 20 years and then stood in a barn for over 20 years before returning to Norfolk to be restored .

It has been completely restored over the past 6 years by Stephen Peck and his family.

The lorry was driven by his father who used to work for Duffields in the 1960s!
