Ainscough Crane Hire has helped bring festive cheer to shoppers and visitors in Felixstowe town centre with the installation of a 32-foot tall Christmas tree.
Working for Felixstowe Council and a voluntary service organisation, the Lions Club the Ainscough team installed the tree prior to it being decorated and switched on as part of the town’s Christmas celebrations.
Using a 40 tonne Liebherr LTM 1040-2.1, all-terrain crane from the recently opened Ipswich Depot, the team delivered the lift of the tree which was installed in the town centre.
Crane operator, David Biedul, performed the lift for the 10th consecutive year running and was assisted this year by depot supervisor, Lee Garrett.
Lee explained: “Dave’s father-in-law works for the Lions Club which is instrumental in the town’s Christmas celebrations. They asked if he could assist and we were naturally eager to help out with it again.
“Once the tree goes up, you know that Christmas has truly arrived and we are sure that it will bring a lot of pleasure to visitors to the town this festive season.”
