Getting to know you…Six Quick Q’s #9

December 01, 2011

Well I hope everyone is getting ready for the weather change?

We have gotten away with it for long enough I think – it hasn’t been too bad so far but everyone thinks a-change-is-a-coming!

Hope you have your grit bins ready?

Now for our usual weekly spot which you should know by now is something a little light hearted…

Its time to “Get to know” David Yates, Managing Director and Phil Harrington, Director a bit better….

David Yates & Phil Harrington (Yes, they always dress like this!)

1.  What was your 1st ever job and how old were you?

 Labourer on a farm aged 14 years,  I remember my first day at work they put me on a tractor – the 1st time I had ever been on one, to cut hayand drove straight into the hedgerow!  Basically, I was too small to reach the pedals properly! 

2.  What is your earliest memory and how old were you?

Playfighting with my brother aged 5 years.  He hit me and I fell backwards over a beanbag and split my head on the wardrobe!

3.  What is your favourite CD at the moment?

Don’t really have or listen to CDs – I just listen to local radio

4.  Name your favourite 3 course meal…

Starter – Anti pasta

Main – Fillet Steak Rare

Dessert – Cheese & Pate platter with a bottle of bolly!

5.  What is your superstar name? (The name of your first ever pet and your mothers surname)

Pirate Harrison

6.  Either, what would you change in the past, or what would you make happen in the future?

In the past, I would have met my wife earlier in my life

and in the future, I would spend much more time with my family

…Thanks Dave, and now its time for the same questions to Phil…

1.  What was your 1st ever job and how old were you?

Not sure the exact age but I used to mow my Nans grass for half a crown!

2.  What is your earliest memory and how old were you?

Again, not sure of exact age but I was really young.  I remember being bored sat in my pram, parked up outside on a really sunny afternoon

3.  What is your favourite CD at the moment?

Well, the CD that is playing in my car right now is “Italian in 3 months”.  We are now in month 13!

4.  Name your favourite 3 course meal…

Starter – Asparagus wrapped in home cured ham

Main – Home reared belly pork, slow cooked for over 14 hours with roast potatoes and green vegetables.

Dessert – Third course is an irrelavance as I would still be munching on the crackling!

5.  What is your superstar name? (The name of your first ever pet and your mothers surname)

Bingo McKenna

6.  Either, what would you change in the past, or what would you make happen in the future?

If  I could go back and change the past I would change my date of birth to a later one

In the future I would continue as I am but I would be much younger because I would have changed my date of birth!

Thank you so much for taking the time out in your busy schedules.

Thats it for this week…who is up for arranging a bus to Phils house to sample some of his home reared hog roast? Yum!

Until next time…
