The Eco Travel Network is delighted to welcome the latest member of its Twizy fleet - Tatyana - named, I am led to believe, after a variety of tomato - entirely apt as her owners grow an entire conservatory filled with them. With a name like that, the livery possibilities are intriguing. So, watch this space.
Tatyana is based at Cae'r Hendre holiday cottage high in the Dyffryn Crawnon valley above the village of Llangynidr. As well as hiring her to their holiday cottage guests, Pip and Gil are already using her for all their local errands as well as journeys to and from their numerous art, ecology and architectural projects around the Brecon Beacons.
Tatyana also has the distinction of being the first of our ETN Twizys purchased entirely from the accumulated income from Pip and Gil's 5 year old domestic micro hydro scheme which works on the mountain spring above their home and, as an early scheme, benifitted from generous landowner and neighbour cooperation.
Tatyana, it seems, is destined for a highly active and endlessly varied life - fed on the watts from a Welsh mountain spring. She will be making her first public appearance at the annual Llangynidr Show on Sunday August 25th.
