On this day ten years ago The Argus went to meet a pinball wizard who performed well at a national tournament. We catch up with two youngsters with some of Britain’s oldest trees and we see a cheque handed over by Preston Lawn Tennis Club.

Stephen Decker, 7, from Crawley, is a pinball player who took part in a UK Pinball Cup competition and won a 4th place trophy in the first round

Stephen has a pinball machine in his home that he practices on. He really is a pinball wizard

William and Tom Preston, age 5, also twins from Brighton, play alongside the trees in the half-term sunshine.

London’s Royal Parks gifted a number of fine smooth-leaved and English Elms to the city of Brighton & Hove to ensure that the heritage established by these ancient Elms continues.

The hollow Preston Twins elm trees are reputed to be around 400 years old and are possibly the oldest surviving elm trees in Europe and the new trees will provide eventual replacements for the future
