Chris Cadman, Managing Director of The Cat said, “Sandie’s chainsaw exploits will no doubt bring a smile to everybody who sees it.  As we remember the past twelve months of lockdown having something beautiful, created in these difficult times, make Sandie and her Owl worthy winner of this month’s Local Legend Award”.
