Pashley are honoured to receive the inaugural NVN Nick Carpenter Award – along with our project partners Simpact, Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and Foresight Innovations – for our ‘Articulating Lightweight Electrically-assisted Cargo Solution’ a zero-emission e-cargo tricycle, designed to meet the rapidly growing demands of the final-mile delivery market.

With a unique, specially designed Innovation Trophy, the purpose of the Award is to identify and promote examples of outstanding and innovative NVN funded R&D projects. The award trophy also celebrates the vision and innovation which Nick Carpenter brought to his work throughout his lifetime.

Adrian Williams, Managing Direct, Pashley Cycles said: “It is a great honour to win this award as we know how enthusiastic Nick was to encourage innovative thinking and new product development. Whilst we realised that there was a huge potential market for the truly low carbon vehicle we had conceived, we then had to make the concept a reality, and the “ALECS” Team faced many challenges during the NVN Proof of Concept and Production Readiness stages. It was only through teamwork and by finding innovative solutions to problems encountered along the way - whether in the drivetrain, materials and structural engineering, or production process optimization - that we were able to bring the project to a successful conclusion. We now have a world-leading product that we can sell internationally.”

VE Day (8 May 2020) will resonate with everyone differently, strongly with some, others less so. 
 
As a boy, I had no interest in history and I was completely oblivious to the impact WW2 had on my parents who lived through it. It was only much later in life that I came to realise that the emotional scars carried by my parents, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, were borne silently and not shared. I didn’t even think to ask about the physical scars my Grandfather bore on his body when we sunbathed on the beach in Cornwall. He was such a softly spoken, jolly, kind man. Yet he, George A. Newling MC (the Military Cross from the Battle of Gavrelle, WW1) had returned from New Zealand - where he had taken the family to set up a trading company in the 1930s – to fight once more. And also to lose his eldest son. 
 
That was my mother’s eldest brother, Michael Alan Newling D.F.C. - one of The Few – a hurricane and spitfire pilot, he died in Channel operations on 6th July 1941. My mother was the last to see him, at the railway station. I was named after him.
