Have your say

EARLIER this month we asked if you could beat the record for the oldest tumble drier in Halifax.

And you have!

Colin Vowles, 74, and wife Sheila, have a 45-year-old Bendix which they bought when Colin was working as the village policeman in Copley, where they still live.

The Bendix has served the couple well down the years and is still in good working order.

“It’s in the garage now and we’ve moved it to one side as someone has given us a better one, but it’s still working,” said Mr Vowles, of Copley Grove.

It has never needed major repairs – just the odd tweak.

But Mr Vowles said he doesn’t know why it’s lasted so long.
