Spreading a Little Christmas Cheer

As the specialists at protecting historic venues, EFS were delighted to be re-awarded the contracts for three of Britain’s largest historic Christmas markets, at Ludlow, Bury St Edmunds and Lincoln. EFS offer a bespoke solution to a wide variety of unique historic venues and events with their range of temporary flooring. For each of these Christmas markets we were asked provide protective flooring and walkways for both inside and outside of marquees. Our products also offered protection for the grounds at each of these wonderful sites - whilst also providing safe walkways throughout each of these unique venues. For the build up of the marquees and general access areas, we supplied and installed both our Hex Road and Temp-A-Path® at Ludlow. For the stallholders, entertainers and visitors at Bury St Edmunds and Lincoln, we supplied and installed our Temp-A-Path® product to provide safe and level walkways. The annual Medieval Christmas Fayre in Ludlow is described as the best medieval show in the land with stalls selling seasonal gifts with a distinct medieval flavour- set within the glorious grounds of the medieval Ludlow Castle it is vital that we protect the grounds. Lincoln provides a different set of problems with our products protecting the grass area within this magnificent castle as well as providing safe walkways within numerous marquees, for the enormous footfall undertaken. Finally the site at Bury St Edmunds provides the ultimate logistical issues as our products have to be “hand balled” across the main road into the grounds and installed overnight so as not to disrupt the traffic. Removing our stock is just as challenging and again has to be completed prior to the start of the morning rush hour. Jeremy Simpson – Business Development Manager of EFS said, “It was fantastic to once again supply these iconic winter events with our products, this is the third year since our start up and the loyalty shown to us by each of these events has allowed EFS to develop and grow.” He added “we have now secured on-going supply for these events and are proud that our bespoke approach offers the ideal solution for these wonderful sites.”
