Briggs renews superbikes sponsorship
Materials handling firm Briggs Equipment is continuing its sponsorship of the Royal Air Force BMW’s British superbikes team.
It will continue its support during the 2016 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship and the North West 200, Ireland’s largest outdoor sporting event.
The company will have prominent branding on the race bikes and on the team’s clothing. There will also be TV coverage of some of the rounds on Eurosport, ITV and ITV4.
Twelve Wrexham recycling centres to close
Twelve neighbourhood recycling centres in Wrexham, North Wales are set to close because they are outdated and can attract fly-tippers.
Wrexham council bosses will shut the facilities across the county at the end of March, with only the three modern recycling bases remaining.
The old centres were introduced before town started its latest scheme, rolling out recycling bins to all households and setting up the trio of large new centres. A new household recycling service with updated bins will also be phased in later this year.
