East Cheshire Hospice are once again organising a Christmas Tree collection service. They will visit Henbury over the weekend of 14th and 15th January.

The aim of the collection is to raise money for the hospice. There is no minimum donation but please give generously to support your Hospice, its patients and their families. No profit is made by simply recycling your tree. The hospice is not part of the NHS, and must raise £7,500 each day.

Your tree is taken to a specially set-up depot where it is reduced down in size either by chipping or mulching. This process uses highly specialised pieces of industrial equipment, which are operated with the help of ANSA Environmental Services. The resultant mulchings are then taken to a location where they are composted under controlled conditions to become a valuable soil improver that is used for agricultural purposes in place of artificial fertilisers.

To arrange collection of your tree, please book in at www.echtrees.org.uk
Alternatively, you can phone Richard Raymond 01625 612025

In part this is caused by the fact that the nearest "fibre box" we can connect to currently is in Broken Cross. You may have seen Openreach vans in the area recently — they have been laying...
