Unfortunately we have some sad news to announce in that former Levertons employee Dick Hughes has sadly passed away. Many UK Cat enthusiasts will have known him from his time as an engineer at Levertons and afterwards from his time running T&H Plant Repair at Moulton Chapel with Scot Thorpe and Cliff Jackson. A lovely man with time for everyone and a very skilled engineer with knowledge second to none. Dick will be sadly missed and our condolences go out to all family and friends.

Back in June 1999 Caterpillar Leicester in the UK celebrated the production of it's 100,000th backhoe.

Chapter 2 members were invited to take some of their machines to celebrate.
