GaLaBau event proved to be a great success

galabau

After four successful trade fair days, the 22nd GaLaBau came to a close on 17 September in Nuremberg: exactly 64,138 trade visitors travelled to the event to inform themselves about products and trends for planning, construction and maintenance with greenery. The increased internationality of the trade fair is encouraging. In this connection, in terms of exhibitors, this time around almost every fourth company was international. Compared with the previous event, the increase in internationality here was 10 %. On the visitors’ side every 10th visitor came to late-summer Nuremberg from abroad, among others from Austria, Poland and Italy. Stefan Dittrich,…

So the Trust will work with Dame Margaret Hodge and her review in the same way they have with all other reviews in the past. This is a review of public funds which were committed to the project as a way to unlock private funding. This…

BALI Honorary Member transforms community courtyard garden

BALI

BALI’s Honorary Member and Vetting Officer for the South West region, Andrew Legg, has transformed a local derelict courtyard into a communal Physic Garden with the help of several local village volunteers.

He then became a volunteer at the Jenner Museum, advising on the upkeep and development of the extensive gardens. This eventually led to Andrew working on a special project to construct a Physic Garden, which included the construction of four 5.00m x 5.00m raised beds with oak sleepers. These…

Weighing just 2.1kg, the lightweight blower has a compact design that provides a longer runtime, with low vibrations and variable speed controls, including a turbo boost mode that is more powerful than many petrol-powered blowers. This efficiency and power is further…
