Council workers are tickled pink

SALFORD City Council has taken delivery of the first LDV Maxus in its new magenta corporate colour, designed to ‘put Salford in people’s minds as a modern and forward-looking city’.

The 2.8-tonne short wheelbase panel van, supplied by Chatfields of Manchester, will be run by the education department to promote educational matters to children and schools at various public open days and events.

Mike Wood, Salford City Council’s principal vehicle services officer, said: ‘LDV has supplied many solid, reliable vehicles to us over the years and the launch of the new Maxus range is a welcome edition to the market. The Maxus not only looks good, but drives fantastically well, too. Driver comfort is paramount to council staff and the van exceeds our expectations. No doubt it’ll be a head-turner on its travels throughout Salford.’
