A Surprise Visitor
Apart from Ermintrude and our Volvo coaches, we don't see many high value, high performance vehicles on site. So, it was quite a surprise on a wet January day to see a white Alfa Romeo 4C turn into our car park. It turned out that Alfa Romeo were doing a photo shoot nearby and the car wasn't clean enough so they needed a hose. Out with the camera and a few shots before it went away. In return we were offered a ride in it but sadly the photoshoot took too long and it was back to earth with a bump as we left to do our school runs. However, the marketing lady was very interested in Ermintrude and we may well see her or Florence featured in future Alfa advertising material (if the cars can keep up*).
