Whilst driving along Cargo Road have you seen and wondered why there is a big metal peg on The Stacey’s property? The three-quarter tonne giant metal peg has become an attraction with most drivers who pass by. Mr Stacey said “There have been a fair few people drive up to the house and ask if they could take a photo of his peg. Mr Stacey said 9 out of 10 people who come to take photos post them on Facebook.”
Mr Stacey got the idea for the peg from a picture he remembered seeing years ago of a giant wooden peg in a field in Belgium and said to himself one day I am going to do that. That one day finally came true. He sat down and drew the peg to scale and rang his mate Jake Willis and said would you like to weld me a giant metal peg and so the adventure began. Once the peg was welded they got Dan Bowman to position the peg into concrete with his truck.
“If people drive past and smile and have a giggle at the peg then my job has been done. The peg is there to make drivers have a great start or finish to the day and if they keep driving and spend money in our town then an extra bonus has been added,” said Mr Stacey.
Watch this space as the peg will eventually have some quirky additions added. Well done to the Stacey family.
