Swadlincote Festival of Transport

Swadlincote Festival of Transport
On Sunday 15th May, First Fence took part in the annual Swadlincote Festival of Transport to raise money for this years charities; Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance and Swadlincote Community First Responders (CFR).

We entered three of our vehicles, a V12 the Artic Tractor Unit, a V26 the 26 Tonne Rigid and a V4 the 7.5 Tonne and supplied 40 Crowd Control Barriers to secure the event. It was our second year supporting the Swadlincote Festival of Transport and again, we had a lot of fun interacting with the public and people taking pictures of our vehicles. Our vehicles were lined up next to one another with room to take a look inside and with friendly staff willing to answer questions.

The turnout for the event was brilliant, we were behind Sharpe's Pottery Museum with the Jaguars, classic fire engines and various HGV Lorries. As some of you will have seen, we posted on Facebook our newest member of the transport fleet, The Beast. The Beast is our largest delivery vehicle yet, we do have plans to invest in more of these to cater for bigger delivery orders. Our Crowd Control Barriers were used for road closures and to indicate a boundary across the Swadlincote town centre. Despite being manned by volunteers at the festival, the temporary Crowd Control Barriers provided sufficient safety. These are an ideal system for supplying pedestrian traffic management in busy or heavily crowded areas. As we saw yesterday, these steel Barriers prevented any harm coming to the public.

We look forward to the future events hosted by the Box Motor Club, Woodville. Gemma Foster, Box Motor Club said: "First Fence provided excellent service and products delivered to the Swadlincote Festival of Transport. Without their help, the logistics of running such a large charity event would have been very difficult and it also helped to ensure the safety of participants and public on the day. As it was a charity event this service was provided free of charge. Highly recommend!"
