Hey how are you all doing!
We are delighted to share our first blog of 2021…..
You may or may not know but 3 years ago we inherited a dog and so now twice a day we go for walks mostly down to the beach but through the first lockdown in 2020 we discovered all sorts of places on our doorstep.
Well today we discovered something about our town that we did not know.
You see on our walks we have kept seeing little QR codes, in unexpected places, and today we decided to check one out that was on a post for one of our carparks (these smart phones can be great). Did you know that they can give you ALL sorts of info!!
This one is really special it told us that in World War II diamond factories were relocated to escape wartime air raids.
The carpark stands on the old Factory Site established by Max Frisch & Gerrit Wins which was on the top floor of the hardware shop Bevans.
The workers were mostly Belgian refugees one of which named Eddy De Klerk invented a machine to turn salt water to fresh, that in itself wasn’t a new idea but his device was uniquely portable and meant it could be used on Ships Lifeboats.
