The Tree Health Services!

THE staff of Tree Health Services, a tree surgery company based at Woolton Village was celebrating the arrival of their new Woodmizer mobile timber.
The company has purchased the state of the art piece of kit with the help of a grant from The Mersey Forest's Business Support ICEP grant scheme.

The machine will allow the business to expand whilst turning otherwise redundant locally grown timber into useful products such as garden furniture and outdoor decking. 

Company Director John Campbell said:- "There are so many instances where we carry out tree surgery for clients but have had no means of then processing the wood on site. 

We couldn't afford this machine on our own, but with the help of The Mersey Forest, clients across Merseyside can now hire the machine as part of our services and ensure that trees are recycled." 


LOCAL POET Alex Anderson has recently been published in a new book 'Captured in the Mind' by poetry publishers, Spotlight Poets.

Captured In the Mind is available from Spotlight Poets at Remus House, Caltsfoot Drive, Peterborough, PE2 9JX priced at £6.95 

France tipped for Euro 2004 Glory

A MAJOR survey of over 1600 people has narrowly tipped France to win the Euro 2004 Football Championships, with England voted as most likely tournament runners up.

The extensive survey, commissioned by lager brewer Kronenbourg, found that over 25 per cent of those surveyed backed France to win Euro 2004, just ahead of Beckham's 'braves' who polled just over a quarter of the winners' vote.

Italy was only tipped by one tenth of those surveyed, despite being the bookies second-placed favourites behind France, with Germany and Spain lagging way behind.

Despite recent reports that Scotland supporters will be rooting for the auld enemy during this championships this year, the survey found that almost a quarter of the Tartan army will be supporting France which concurs with many in the Northwest of England who favour the recent world cup winners.

Andy Neal, Consumer Marketing Director at brand owners Scottish Courage said:- "With the prospect of an England-France final, England fans are clearly looking forward to an excellent competition. And, in the year that we celebrate the centenary of the Entente Cordiale - the treaty of friendship between our two great nations - the idea of the two countries facing each other in the final is a fantastic proposition".
