OSCAR WINNING SONGS

Globe Theatre

You Light Up My Life – The Oscar Winners (The Globe, March 7/8) is a montage of memorable songs that received the red carpet treatment at the Academy Awards.

You Light Up My Life, sung by Debbie Boone, won the Oscar in 1977 and is just as popular today. Each song will be introduced by the movie to give the audience the feel of the era and then presented as a classic rendition.

The line-up includes James Bond’s Live And Let Die, Shallow from A Star Is Born and Happy from Despicable Me. Other enduring songs include Never On Sunday, Georgy Girl and The Way We Were.

A line-up of Manawatu’s top singers, with accompaniment and arrangement from Roger Buchanan will showcase the songs at The Globe, Saturday, March 7 at 7.30pm and Sunday, March 8 at 2.30pm.

Tickets $27.50 (adults), $25 (seniors/students).

Hi neighbours,

My driveway has become uneven, I think it's due to tree roots as there is a large tree at the end of my drive (see pic).

Is there anyone that can help me in this matter please? Any advice, recommendations, suggestions & guidance welcome.

Pruning jobs

Jack from Jacks Tree Services

My name is Jack and I am interested in any large scale pruning jobs in the Manawatu area that the average joe bloggs doesn’t have the ability or the equipment to do. I have many years of experience in the horticultural industry, especially when it comes down to pruning and tree care.

I provide following types of pruning:

* Deadwooding
* Crown and canopy thinning
* Crown canopy lifting
* Directional or formative pruning
* Vista pruning
* Crown reduction
* Pollarding

I currently work as a Nursery Technician for the Manawatu District Council, specialising in propagating native plants. I’ve decided to take advantage of my skills and knowledge in horticulture/arboriculture and use that for something to do during my downtime with a bit of extra pocket money on the side, hence me promoting my services.

NOTE: I am not interested in tree removals nor am I qualified or have the experience to do so. Cutting down trees can be very dangerous. I also do not have the equipment to undertake such jobs. I recommend hiring a professional for this type of work.

NOTE: I do have the proper climbing and safety equipment if a job requires me to ascend and work in a tree. I am not a qualified professional or had extensive training in this particular field of work but I do know how to use the equipment safely and confidently with the proper techniques involved. I’m not a risk taker so each job will be considered through a case by case basis.

If you are interested please message or call me and maybe include an image of what you would liked pruned and I can provide a quote. I can also do an onsite visit and provide a quote that way.

Cheers,
