To enter this competition, we asked the competitors to guess the amount of components that make up a pair of Arbortec Scafell Lite chainsaw boots.

Ryan Baldock – who wins a pair of Arbortec Scafell Lite chainsaw boots
Name the carving
We had a giant carving up on show for our open day and we asked the entrants of this competition to name the carving. The best, witty, but not explicit, name (in our opinion) wins the prize. Considering the majority of names were explicit, we chose the following name – Mother Nature. This name was submitted by:
Ian Williams – who wins an Arbortec long sleeved polo shirt
