The Hazel Tree Press was launched in the early 1970s to separate commercial trade from Peter Such's professional and non-commercial interests. All Peter Such's diverse interests are being brought together under the collective heading of 'petersuch enterprises'—see collective index.
The Hazel Tree Press provides editorial, design, technical and marketing services to authors, printers and publishers in a consultancy, practical, or project management role, according to client requirements.
These services apply to conventional and digital printing on paper, web site design and management, and multimedia. Sites for charitable and community interests were created and developed for: The Graham Greene Birthplace Trust, Berkhamsted Town Council, Berkhamsted Town Hall Trust. Peter Such also initiated Drifters News Reports, for a consortium of some of the leading UK award-winning canal boat hiring companies. Just some of the sites Peter Such has created to get entities up and running, enabling them to now run their sites for themselves.
Full Publishing Services (Book Packaging)
While The Hazel Tree Press does act as a publisher in its own right, usually of commissioned work, it also fulfils the function of a book packager, providing a full publishing service under customers' own imprints.
Other Professional, Academic and Management Roles
Peter Such was a contributing researcher and author to Project Elvyn: an experiment in electronic journal delivery, published by Bowker Saur for the Research and Development Department of the British Library. He has previously provided company secretary facilities to 'member-run' property management companies and management consultancy services to other private associations, but has now dropped this service to concentrate on his own writing and related printing and publishing services.
Peter Such was for a time an occasional lecturer in Publishing Design and Information Presentation at Loughborough University. Extensively interested in politics, philosophy and economics, he became an Independent town councillor (and Town Mayor) and stood for Parliament under The Referendum Party banner.
