HSS Sponsor Neil

Posted on Mar 31, 2010 in Featured articles, Other News, Project News | 0 comments

HSS Tool Hire have agreed to sponsor us again by putting Neil Lomax, a member of the Save The Trident team, through an abbrasive wheel course in April. Neil will be cutting the Trident prior to the transporting of the aircraft and it is the stipulation today with Health and Safety rules that this course is completed before doing so. The course would have cost £95, but HSS have very kindly given this as a donation in addition to tool hire previously offered.

Donations from people has been excellent and we thank everyone so much. We are still short of our target and need one more push to get to acheiving the move so talk to your friends and work colleagues and contacts and help us get there.

Skipbridge Signs Offer Support

Posted on Mar 17, 2010 in Featured articles, Project News | 1 comment

Skipbridge Signs, based in Darlington, have offered us support in our project in two very useful areas. First of all, they have offered the use of a Cherry Picker whenever we need it. This will be useful when dismantling our Trident at its current site, which will require a lot of cutting and will result in plenty of bits and pieces that we need to transport or dispose of. Secondly, Skipbridge have offered to create a sign for us to display on the aircraft when we transport it. Argie Ward from Skipbridge has made this very generous offer to our cause, so we want to publicly thank him. The...
