  • EFS Europe marks third year at Victoria Park remembrance event
  • Temp-a-Path in Victoria Park

Leicester based event flooring supplier EFS Europe marked its third year in a row supplying the city's Victoria Park remembrance event.

The 2016 service once again utilised over 1,500m2 of EFS Europe's Temp-A-Path product to create clean and clear access for the invited guests and many hundreds of locals who came to pay their respects. The lightweight plastic flooring also provided a stable base for the 1,000 chairs that were set out to accommodate the congregation.

In addition to the temporary hard surface, EFS Europe also supplied and installed a 4m x 30m roll of its high-quality Podium Flat carpet in a deep red finish. The carpet was used to create a walkway from the seating area to the war memorial itself, providing guests with well-presented access to lay wreaths and pay their respects. The carpet was also used to cover the podium upon which a lone trumpeter played the last post. The carpet was installed with a protective plastic top-cover that remained in place until the last minute, ensuring that the carpet was in perfect condition for the start of the event.

Installation will took place on Saturday 12th November, with the uplift done immediately after the service concluded on Sunday 13th November.

EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said that the event is now an established part of the company's schedule.

"I've said many times before that despite working across the UK, supplying events in our home city is always special. The Victoria Park remembrance service has become an integral part of the city's own calendar, so to be involved three years running certainly makes us feel that we're very much a part of that culture."
