WHO saw our straw DaLICK?
As many people know 2013 was the 50th Anniversary of Dr Who!
We were inundated with suggestions to create something to celebrate this iconic event.
After numerous discussions between the Sadler’s (Snugburys Family) and Mike Harper from Harbrook Engineering, we all decided a 35ft Dalek made from straw would look pretty cool!
We believe it took around 700 man-hours to fabricate the steel frame, pack the straw and, for the first time ever, introduce moving parts and audio.
The feature was made from approximately 6 tonnes of straw and 5 tonnes of steel. We created a ‘DaLICK’ ice cream cone, which along with other donations helped raise over £3,000 for Cancer Research UK!
