    Visit to the Romahome factory.

    Have just returned from a short visit to the Isle of Wight, staying at Comforts Farm, just outside Cowes. They very kindly prolonged their season by a few days especailly for us, so we were the only campers on the field.

    Daniel gave us a fascinating tour of the Romahome factory - worth a visit, folks - whilst the men were finishing off a job they were doing on our van for us. Thanks, Daniel.

    Just one thought - are there no local females qualified to work there? I thought girls / women were beginning to access such technical education nowadays?
    Carpe diem! :)

    I get a few female engineers/technicians who come to repair equipment,but I have yet to see one working in a garage or light industrial engineering, but the overall numbers are still low,very much higher in I.T,not uncommon there.

      I worked in a garage for nearly 10 years back in the late 70's early 80's in the car body repair shop. I was preparing, welding, spraying etc

        Perhaps you could have a quick look at our wheel arches when we next meet up?

            Perhaps that's the problem - not enough overalls, or they are the wrong shape and why do folk need overalls in IT

              ha ha I like it!

              My eldest, a computer engineer, considers black t-shirts with a range of ...er...interesting ...motifs on, plus jeans, suitable attire when SHE goes to work. I think she is considered an honorary man at work! (Can't see her under the bonnet of a car somehow, though.)

              And yes, we ARE very proud of her!
