Vulcan XH558 3 months of ‘ops’ from RHA

It’s almost 3 months since Vulcan XH558 landed at Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport on its return to the former RAF base.

Having since moved into Hangar 3 the aircraft has now a dedicated home at the airport and will be open to the public as well as be available for private and commercial events.

Having photographed the aircraft in and around the airport on numerous occasions I thought it might be nice to pop together a short slideshow of some of my images.

Check out the website for more pix along with the Vulcan to the Sky site for information on the aircraft and how you can help in keeping this last example flying.

Ed Miliband, MP Opens Sustainable Energy Company’s Showroom

Marcus Payne and Ed Miliband

A pioneering Doncaster company celebrated the opening of a brand new showroom with a visit from the Rt. Hon. Ed Miliband, MP. 

Family- owned business Green Energy Solutions UK Ltd held an official launch to mark the opening of its new state-of-the-art facility at Jupiter Business Park in Bentley.   The event was also attended by Doncaster’s Civic Mayor, Cllr Eva Hughes.

The company, which specialises in the supply of alternative energy products including solar and photovoltaic panels and ground-source heat pumps, has seen its turnover increase three-fold since it began trading just three years ago.  It installs products in both residential and commercial buildings, as well as in affordable housing schemes and other local authority projects across the UK.   The new showroom will accommodate its ambitious expansion plans and allow customers to see how the alternative energy equipment works.

Part of the demonstration process involved the use of a “Sunny Beam” device, which, through Bluetooth technology measures the amount of energy generated by photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the showroom, and the subsequent monetary savings which can be made by using these.

Managing Director, Marcus Payne who is a shareholder along with wife Sally, and father, David explains: “We are delighted that our constituency MP, Ed Miliband could join us to commemorate this very special occasion. The event marked a new generation of business development for us, and it’s very exciting.  The company has largely grown through word of mouth, but the fact that we can now physically show people how alternative energy equipment works in order to heat their home or office and significantly reduce their energy bills  means that we can really develop the business.”

As the company looks to the future it has already taken on two more staff, and the family anticipates that more people will be needed to fulfil new orders  as they come in from within the region and further afield.

David Payne adds: “With gas bills alone set to increase by 25% in the coming months, more and more people will be looking at other ways to heat their homes and places of work.   Our new showroom will allow those looking at new methods to see for themselves how it all operates and to appreciate just how relatively straightforward, uncomplicated and cost effective it is.”

Rt. Hon, Ed Miliband, MP for Doncaster North , comments:  “I’m pleased to be able to support a new, innovative venture in Doncaster at a time when jobs and work are all-important. It is fantastic to see business growth like this in my constituency.

“It is important to find new ways of delivering energy savings for homes and businesses, and Green Energy Solutions shows how technology available today can unlock that potential.”

Green Energy Solutions’ projects in the region include photovoltaic panel installations at Freshney Green, a 296 property residential scheme in Grimsby for Shoreline Housing Partnership and Stamford Homes, and a large-scale residential scheme in Sculcoates, Hull also for Stamford Homes.  The Salvation Army in Bridlington has also recently benefitted from the company’s expertise and products which have been installed on the town’s drop-in centre and community hub.  In addition, Green Energy Solutions has carried out scores of individual property installations for homeowners across Yorkshire who will benefit from lower energy bills.

To commemorate the official showroom opening, Green Energy Solutions UK is offering a special discount on photovoltaic panels, with £1,000 discount given on all installations booked during June.

A ‘fascinating’ football team!

Sprotbrough FC, a 'fascinating' team!

Spectators to the last game of the season in the Doncaster & District Sunday Alliance Football League were treated to a fascinating sight when one team donned a spectacular array of head gear!

New team sponsor, Exquisite Boutique, managed to persuade Sprotbrough FC to wear the striking fascinators prior to the League Cup Final.

Kettle Calling The Pot?

“I am really pleased to be able to support such a successful team that grows from strength to strength with each season,” commented Clare Dent owner of Exquisite Boutique.  “The team enjoyed wearing the fascinators. They really got into the spirit of what ultimately a fascinator is for, a fun and stylish accessory for any outfit!”

Exquisite Boutique, based at Markham Grange Garden Centre, Brodsworth offers a bespoke fascinator service, handbags and jewellery, and is looking forward to the new football season when the team will be proudly displaying the company’s logo.
