Bury St Edmunds 2012

We were delighted to be awarded for the second year running the contract to provide a solution for the 9th annual Christmas Fayre in Bury St Edmunds. The tourist office (part of the borough council), contacted us with regards to protecting the historic lawns and gardens, providing floor areas for stalls and entertainers, whilst working under severe time parameters. Temp-A-Path® was selected as the most practical and versatile product for installation and uplift. In total 1,700m² of the product was installed protecting the grass from pedestrian foot fall and trade stands. The time issues were critical for the council given that the location was within the Abbey walls on the lawns and gardens where no mechanical trucks or forklifts were allowed. The lorry had to be manually unloaded by 6 am, with the stock then transported on pallet trucks across the main road and into the gardens prior to the daily rush hour. For the uplift of Temp-A-Path® , the team started work at 9pm and, with the assistance of floodlights, working through the night they managed to have the return lorry Loaded and sent away by 6am. Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre has non-stop entertainment for three days with many different groups, schools and charities performing. The Christmas Fayre is now famous for its entertainment. With two stages, children’s entertainment and street entertainers, there is something for everyone.

EFS were proud to work, on behalf of the Leicester Mayor’s office to supply and install over 1,000m² of Temp-A-Path® for the remembrance service at the War Memorial in Leicester’s Victoria Park. Following an on site meeting earlier in the year, EFS were able to design the optimum fit for the service and wreath laying. It enabled the best use of Temp-A-Path to be laid within the area provided. Temp-A-Path® was selected from the bidding process as being the most cost effective and flexible product available for this event. The key objectives were to provide a safe platform for the service as well as protecting the memorial gardens and grounds. With over 3,500 participants attending hymns and prayers were sang and said with proud veterans standing shoulder to shoulder with young cadets under a brilliant blue sky to pay their respects to fallen soldiers.

For the second year running EFS were appointed by Ignite Music & Entertainment Ltd to supply and fit the flooring area within the Player’s Hospitality area at the recent 2012 ATP Tennis Tournament in London’s O2 Arena. This event is the biggest indoor tennis tournament in the world featuring Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and a wealth of other stars. The project involved laying wood effect vinyl in both the Players lounge and restaurant sections. This technically challenging work involved bonding the vinyl to the plywood flooring and cutting around many pillars to the precise design supplied. The work was completed over 2 days to enable the fit out to take place. Jeremy Simpson – Business Development Manager for EFS commented, ”Following our initial work with Ignite in 2011 it was great to be re-awarded the contact for 2012 for this prestigious tournament and iconic venue. As a company we have grown significantly during our first year and repeat business like this proves that we have the products and service that the market expects and requires.”

Working on behalf of Bright White Ltd, Event Flooring Solutions (EFS) have provided temporary flooring for the Illuminating York Festival. The festival runs Wednesday 31 October until Saturday 3 November. EFS created a working pad for an articulated lorry using 130m² of their Hex Road product along with providing temporary walkways and disabled access areas throughout the museum grounds using 400m² of Temp-A-Path® .  Both products provide ideal safe flooring environments which also providing ideal protection for the grounds themselves. EFS Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson commented “This is a new project for us and we are delighted that our products were chosen.” He added “This is the start of a busy few months for EFS and we look forward to more diverse opportunities for our product range”. This will be York’s largest Illuminating York Festival yet, with comedian Vic Reeves given a free reign to unleash his absurd and magical creations in the centre of York. Last year’s event saw 60,000 people flock to the festival, and as well as three large scale projections, the botanical gardens will also be brought to magical life using innovative lighting around trees and plants. The York Museum Gardens have been transformed into a ten acre magical wonderland for the return of Illuminating York.  Where the old world meets new, as the hauntingly beautiful ruins of St Mary’s Abbey, the stunning facade of the Yorkshire Museum and part of the City Walls provide the backgrounds to three large scale cutting edge projections.
