Where can I park the helicopter?

Unfortunately, considering the number of orders we actually take, we rarely get to see the completed project, let alone see the paving being put to good use.

However, back in early 2008, a customer from East Lothian placed an order for a Yorkvale Silver Black 3 Ring Circle. Whilst placing the order, the customer and our sales advisor Joanne began to chat, when they found a topic of common interest... flying. Joanne had been a member of the RAF before joining Simply Paving and the customer had an unusual feature in his back garden... a helicopter! Not what you'd expect; a water fountain or a stone statue maybe, but a helicopter? What was more intriguing was the fact that the helicopter was not for use, just for show... and the Yorkvale circle... for parking it on!

Generally, we wouldn't recommend anything other than foot traffic and some patio furniture on such a product, however, upon explicit laying instructions from ourselves and StoneFlair, the order was placed.

We didn't have to wait too long before a very happy customer sent through the photographs to show the helicopter and its new home.

Needless to say, we couldn't believe our eyes!
