TOUGH TASK

ICE news

Director general Tom Foulkes' site management skills were found wanting in Hull last week, when his shoddy construction cost the presidential team 'Bodgitt and Flee' the ICE Yorkshire schools challenge. Set the task of planning an urban development on brownfield land, Bodgitt and Flee was capably holding off challenges from Immingham School and Hessle High School until the task entered the construction phase. There, hasty setting out by Foulkes cost the team a crippling financial penalty from which it could never recover. Foulkes was quick to shift the blame onto president Doug Oakervee, who went mysteriously AWOL during construction. The event was organised by ICE Yorkshire's schools liaison team, led by Lynden Cable, with help on the day from CITB Construction Skills.
