Meet Henri

The oldest team member (just!), Henri is a 1972 Citroën HY van. He is a fine example of a model that was produced from 1947 to 1981, but was rarely sold in the UK. He was restored to his current glory in 2015 after a life of hard work in Avignon. He’s left hand drive and only has 3 gears and, without power steering, every trip is a minor work-out. He’s now proudly boasting a Fracino espresso coffee machine, oak counters, LED lighting and all the catering equipment needed to make your event a success.
