We would like to wish Mark, and his team a huge congratulations for taking part in the Dare 2b Rutland CiCLE Tour last Saturday! The event allowed cyclists to chose from 4 routes, 21 miles, 57 miles, 78 miles and the hardest route, the 105 miles. Out of the four options the team decided to go for hardest route, the 105 miles!
The track ventured not only through Rutland, but also cycled through Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. Although this route was the toughest route to cycle, along the way the team managed to see some amazing views, passing by places such as Rutland Water, the Vale of Belvoir, Belvoir Castle, Eyebrow Reservoir and Harrington Viaduct.
Our very own Matthew Willson, along with eight other team members, had the honour to represent England at the Skydiving World Championships in Teuge, Netherlands.
We would like to congratulate Matthew and the team on coming tenth in the competition! See what he had to say about his experience during the competition here at newarkadvertiser.co.uk
To celebrate our 150 years our Sales & Marketing Manager at Pyramid Press set the challenge to run 150 miles in 15 events. The challenge was not only to celebrate our anniversary but to raise money for the homeless charities the Nomad Trust and Lincolnshire YMCA.
Jas ran in a number of different events such as Tough Mudder, Total Warrior, Nottingham Marathon, Spires and Steeples, Leicester Half Marathon, Dirty Weekend Rat Race which included 200 obstacles over 20 miles, Lincoln 10k, and a few added others.
We are proud to announce that Jas has raised an amazing £1274.64 to go towards the charities and actually ended up running 184 miles in the 15 events!
Last month Chuter Ede Primary School in Balderton, Newark created a fantastic book full of jokes called ‘Jokemania sure to make you laugh’. The book was created to help raise money for Comic Relief and has raised an amazing £360 to go towards the charity!
After donating some stock paper and card to the Linkage Community Trust’s Moving On Partnership, we were grateful to receive a thank you letter. This Grimsby-based project aims to help learning disabled people take the next steps towards leading an independent life. It provides a range of courses such as cookery, DIY, learn to travel, and IT to boost confidence and employability.
“We are writing to thank you for the paper and card which you recently donated to Moving On Partnership. The Clients at Moving On Partnership were very excited to see such quality items and are looking forward to using them in their art and craft sessions.”
Willsons have recently completed the print and dispatch of some booklets, flyers and posters for the Monksthorpe Baptist Church and are delighted to have received high praise from our customer.
“So, many thanks for the booklets, well printed. I particularly appreciated the triple scoring of the spines so that they lie flat. I had already guessed the increase for the extra colour pages to within a pound or two, so no problem there. Thank you too for the flyers and posters. To my surprise, 120 rather than 100 of the two shorter booklets were delivered!”
26 Nottinghamshire-based employers from both the public and private sector have been awarded for supporting Defence personnel.
The businesses from Nottingham, Mansfield, Sutton in Ashfield, Worksop and Newark received a Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver award for demonstrating their support to Reservist employees.
Certificates were presented by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace at The Carriage Hall, Station Road, Plumtree, Nottingham on Thursday 20 November.
Reservists are men and women who give up their free time to train alongside our regular (full-time) military forces and may be called on to serve the country in times of need at home or aboard. (more…)
