In the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, the Christmas Fayre is a focal part of the local festivities, and EFS Europe has been supplying temporary flooring for the event for the last four years.
Having expanded by over 30%, the organisers needed 2,500m2 of EFS Temp-a-Path™ plastic flooring to protect the city's Cathedral grounds and provide safe pedestrian access for the thousands of visitors.
100 miles north, EFS Europe also returned to the ancient city of Lincoln for its famous market held in the city's historic Castle & Castle Gardens. Attracting over 250,000 visitors, the organisers specified over 2,900m2 of EFS Temp-A-Path™to be installed within the grounds. Having started with just 11 stalls, the market now showcases more than 200 traders and a variety of cultural entertainment.
These winter events choose EFS Temp-A-Path™ due to its lightweight nature, and the fact that all the sites contain historic listed buildings. The ability to install the Temp-A-Path™ by hand allows the organisers to keep heavy plant machinery to a minimum, reducing the risk of damage to property, roads or footpaths. In both locations, Temp-A-Path™ is also used to protect grassed areas, reducing the cost of post-event clean up and maintenance.
Speaking about the projects, EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:
"These events have become a regular feature on our own event calendar. The locations present their own unique challenges, but by using our EFS Temp-A-Path™ product the organisers have been able to grow in size without having to worry about how to protect the site surfaces."
