CIoH Branded Items

Following requests from members, and positive feedback from visitors to the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show Advice Stand, where we wore pale blue branded polo shirts, we have sourced a small range of branded items, which will be launched at the November talk.

 

Mentoring

We are fortunate enough to have a growing number of student members in the Northern branch, who from time to time ask for mentoring advice. If you are happy to take a phone call or email from a member who is starting their career, please let us know. Thanks to Ian & Sue Barnes (Barnes Associates) and Clive Parker (Amey) who have already volunteered advice to young arborists.
