History ahoy with Snows Timber

Published:  20 July, 2016

With its own history in wood products stretching back over 100 years, Snows Timber is asking merchant customers to share pictures of any summer-time wood history ‘finds’ on Twitter, celebrating the fascinating world of wood.

“We’re launching this campaign to tie in with a great piece of wood history that’s re-opening today: the new Mary Rose ship museum on Portsmouth Historic Dockyard,” said Snows’ sales director Andy Jones.

“Henry VIII’s Mary Rose sank on 19 July 1545. Its rediscovery shows how many different uses there were for wood products in times past. We’d like customers to share their wood history finds during the summer. We also have a limited number of copies of ‘The Mary Rose Revealed’, published by the Mary Rose museum, to thank them for sharing their pictures with the Snows community online.”

Merchant customers can tweet their summer holiday wood history pictures to @SnowsTimber or email them, with their permission to share online, to marketing@snowstimber.com. The photo share will continue until the end of August.
