Gary Bailey and Andy Macpherson are safely on their way, hopefully arriving in Singapore about now. Their ETA in Port Vila is still 18 hours away! Both Singapore and Vanuatu airlines have been very cooperative with regard to their excess baggage.

GreenMech dealer in Cardiff
Mar 03, 2015 - 2:34 PM - by PeteB
There has been a recent change in GreenMech dealerships covering the NP and CF postcodes in South Wales.

Cambrian Plant have taken a step back to concentrate the business in construction machinery sales and the hire fleet, which does include GreenMech woodchippers.

We have therefore appointed Forest Park and Garden of Severn Road, Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd, CF37 5SW to be the GreenMech dealer for the area. They will also handle the supply of spare parts and any service work on any GreenMech that you wish to take to them.

GreenMech's Area Manager, Julian Cullis will assist Rhees Coles of Forest Park and Garden during the transitional period and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

Forest Park and Garden can be reached on 01443 230000 or mail@fpandg.co.uk Home page
