Following the huge success of last year’s event, Capel Manor College are kick starting the year with Celebration of Trees 2010. Showcasing the best in Arboriculture and the Countryside, this show has become a firm fixture in the arboriculture calendar.
Andrew Eastaugh – Brand Marketing Manager, Husqvarna sponsors of the event told The Landscaper, “ It’s always a pleasure to work with Capel Manor College and to be a part of the inspiring work they do for both professionals and budding arborists. It’s for this reason that we decided to give them our full support and we wish them the best of luck.”
Last year’s event attracted over 40 exhibitors and 1500 visitors and proved to be very successful.
After last year’s success they are staging another Employer’s Forum in the Manor House on Friday 23rd starting at 3.30pm. This will look at Employer Responsive Training; understanding your business needs and in particular Short Courses, Apprenticeships, Train to Gain and Bespoke Training, as well as a presentation by Income Protect entitled Tree Surgeon Insurance Services; understanding the complexities of Public Liability, Employers Liability and Accident Insurance.
