Christmas tree seller predicts rapid growth over next four months

A ROADSIDE Christmas tree seller has confidently predicted that business will go from strength to strength.

“People cannot get enough of these trees”

Tom Logan’s garage forecourt-based tree outlet has been overwhelmed since the start of December, more than making up for a generally quiet 2014.

The surge in business has promoted Logan to expand his operation with a move to larger, more expensive premises in January.

Logan said: “These trees are big business and I can’t see this bubble bursting.

“To be completely honest we had a tough October, and an even worse November, but overnight for some reason things turned around and right now each day is busier than the last.”

“Extrapolating the figures we have at the moment, by the middle of March I’ll be selling 1,000 trees a day. By June that figure will top 4,500.”

However Logan’s girlfriend Nikki Hollis said: “I tried to gently suggest there might be a dip in sales pretty soon, but Tom was too busy arranging to take delivery of a lorry load of Norwegian spruces on Boxing Day.”

Harry asked Sports Personality winners if they had any weed

PRINCE Harry asked every winner at the Sports Personality of the Year awards if they were holding marijuana.

Sources revealed that as the Prince shook hands with each of last night’s award winners he leaned-in and said: “Hi, I don’t suppose you brought any weed?”

He then told each of them to ‘keep smiling and nodding and pretend I just congratulated you’.

In his bid to solicit the drug the Prince was forced to deploy a wide range of terms including ‘Astro Turf’, ‘Juan Valdez’ and ‘Righteous Bush’.

A source said: “None of them had any. The Prince was very disappointed and threatened to ban women’s rugby.

“But he cheered up when he realised he was in Glasgow and that it would be like buying a bag of crisps.”
