Manoeuvring the vehicle from the mammoth space at the driving seat (it has overhead lockers and a fridge and the passenger sits a metre away!) will be unlike any other driving you’ve experienced before.

The first thing that will strike the person taking up this deal is the height of the lorry; it’s so high there are three steps to climb before the driver can get anywhere close to clambering into the cabin (apparently the sign of a good trucker is one who can get back into their cab with a coffee in one hand and not spill a drop).

Sitting in the driver’s seat is like sitting at mission control, except with panoramic views of the road ahead, sound systems and lockers overhead, and a lorry and 55ft long trailer in the wing mirror behind. Reversing round a corner suddenly becomes a lot more challenging.

Each driver will get 15 to 20 minutes at the wheel, and time sitting on the bench-style crew seat behind the driver as the others in the group take a turn to drive. We have 3 spaces.

Well done to the No. 1's.  They made it through the heats, onto the semi final and were crowned champions against the formidable T'Yorkies in a fantastic nail biting final last night.  A brilliant last answer 'The Statue of Liberty' was a fitting end to 7 weeks of quizzing.  8 teams started with 48 participants.  We also had almost 300 audience 'bookings' throughout too.  Will we be doing it all again - of course we will but we need time to start asking another 100 people many fun questions.  Your £10 gift voucher has been emailed to the 6 winners today.

Today I want to highlight that whilst Spice changes lives for so many people is does for those behind the scenes too.  Take me as an example, I have experienced so much over the years, I have learned to ski, whack a golf ball, ride a segway and made some real friends along the way. I met the lovely Katie through Spice with the inquisitive Beth now part of the Morris clan.  Looking ahead I face my biggest challenge yet with Spice.  If you had told me six years ago my happy place would be out on a walk I'd of laughed you out of the room.  I saw a gap in the Spice programme for short, easy walks suitable for everyone so on 23 January 2014 I planned the easy Pentland's stroll.  The first walk I would lead.  I enjoyed it immensely so pressed ahead with more walks including the coast to coast, Erskine to Edinburgh via the canal paths, the Fife Coastal Path, Ben Lomond, and many Pentland hills walks. 2019 was one of my highlights, The West Highland Way - this simply reinforced my love of the hills.  Recently I was lucky enough to walk Ben Nevis with friends, all very straight forward.  This year I will be leading the Fife Pilgrims Path as training begins for Africa and the Kilimanjaro Climb in July 2021.  I am lucky enough to be part of a small team (Graeme Czeschel and Lorna McDougall so far) who attempting the 19340 ft highest mountain in Africa.  This is a Spice trip so all members from around the UK are welcome to join us.  It will be a real challenge of fitness, character and resolve but one that will live long in the memory for sure.  So, if on a meal I decide to not have the pudding as a 3rd course - as odd as that may seem don't encourage me, I influence easily where cake is concerned!  Exciting times.
