Crane sailing at Crinnis Beach. Meals on wheels was given a new twist as St Austell metal recycler, Henry Orchards and Sons, helped Sam’s Cornwall, move its latest venture into place

Henry Orchard’s managing director, Henry Orchard, said: “We’re normally called in by companies and organisations to take metal objects away for processing and recycling.

“I think this must be the first time we’ve been asked to put something in place.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to get priority seats at the new restaurant when it opens!”

Sam’s, which is run by Sam and Emma Sixton, has restaurants at Polkerris, Fowey, Truro and now at Crinnis Bay.

Managing director, Emma Sixton, said: “We’re really grateful to Henry and his team for helping move the container into its final position.

“The haulage company had done a great job getting it down to the beach, but it was the final stretch that just needed the help of a big crane.

“It certainly puts a new twist on meals on wheels!”
