ETS Truck and Van becomes Mercedes-Benz authorised repairer The Blandford Forum branch of ETS Truck and Van in Dorset has become an official Mercedes-Benz Trucks authorised repairer, marking a return to the brand for the firm’s MD Colin Gale (left), after a 26-year hiatus. The move follows ETS’s acquisition and refurbishment of an existing commercial vehicle maintenance facility on the same street. The site, which spans more than 0.5 acres, comprises a six-bay workshop with two pits, a parts department and offices. Gale, who worked for Mercedes as a technician, service advisor, service manager and general manager between 1986 and 1994 before establishing ETS, approached the manufacturer after the closure of Marshall Truck and Van’s workshop in Poole.  The group’s operations director and Gale’s son Darren (right) is responsible for the new site, supported by service manager James Lalor-Ricketts and group parts manager Ryan Parker. Employees of the workshop prior to its acquisition by ETS and from the former Marshall Poole business are also working at the new facility. The workshop is open from 6am until 8pm on weekdays, from 7am until noon on Saturdays and also has a 24-hour service van for emergency roadside assistance. “We’ve retained the overwhelming majority of customers who’d been using the Blandford facility and were ticking along quite nicely, despite the Covid-related disruption, but the chance to take a big step up by becoming an authorised repairer for Mercedes-Benz Trucks was one we didn’t want to pass up,” said Gale senior. “The aim, as far as possible, is to be a one-stop shop for customers. To that end, there’s a dedicated ATF lane at our Poole workshop that can also be used to MoT test Blandford customers’ trucks, and we have introduced additional services at the new branch – such as tachograph installation and calibration and brake testing. We’re also aiming to add LOLER weight testing for tail-lifts and will continue to extend our offers as the business develops.” Enviro-Clean takes delivery of a new Mercedes-Benz Arocs Waste management and cleaning specialist Enviro-Clean has taken delivery of a Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3258 for sewer, pipeline and drain cleaning duties. It is fitted with a 15,000-litre stainless steel tank and a Wiedemann KW4500 liquid ring vacuum pump. The latter has a suction capacity of 4,500cu m per hour and can be deployed across a 180-degree range via a main boom and reel with 20m of suction hose.  It also features an automatic continuous water recycling system and a URACA P4 pump, which can deliver 541 litres per minute at up to 175 bar and allows the operator to reuse water pumped from a sewer – rather than feeding directly from the drinking water supply – reducing water consumption and waste. Supplied and serviced by dealer Western Commercial, it’s powered by a 580hp 15.6-litre engine, has a single front axle, a double-drive bogie and a steering axle at the rear, which is said to make it as manoeuvrable as a 6-wheeler. “Fuel consumption is difficult to measure in a meaningful way for a truck like this, as the engine’s PTO (power take-off) also runs the auxiliary equipment,” said Enviro-Clean’s operations manager Mark Donaghy. “However, the powertrain of this Arocs makes it one of the most efficient vehicles we’ve ever had.  “The steered back axle helps the driver to get in and out of tight spots and means the truck can access locations at which a standard 8x4 would struggle.

Why is it the first rung on the ladder that is our formal education system? And why does that ladder begin around age 5? The answer to these questions begins over 180 years ago. Prussian pedagogue Friedrich Froebel invented the idea of kindergarten in 1837. The term literally means “garden of children,” and Froebel envisioned it as a place where children could blossom into young people. “It was a very distinctive educational model, focused on promoting young children’s spiritual and moral development,” said Jennifer Lin Russell, a University of Pittsburgh professor who studies educational policy and has written about the evolution of kindergarten. Froebel felt that kids learn through self-discovery and play. The teacher doesn’t drill knowledge into children. The teacher creates conditions for children to teach themselves. This original kindergarten was, as Russell puts it, “a fairly prescriptive” model of education. Froebel laid out specific daily sequences that kindergarten instruction should follow. You started the day with songs. Froebel even wrote a book of songs for teachers and children to sing together. Then after songs, Froebel expected children to move to play. He invented sets of wooden toys in various shapes that he called “gifts,” hoping they would facilitate creativity. The kindergarten concept migrated to America along with German immigrants.
