Box Motor Club Presentation Evening

Back in May 2016, it was previously mentioned that we supplied Crowd Control Barriers to the Swadlincote Festival of Transport and also entered three of our vehicles. On Tuesday 19th July we were invited to attend the Box Motor Club’s Presentation Evening at The Box Club, Woodville, Swadlincote.

When we arrived, we were greeted by the members and had the opportunity to take a look at the classic cars lined up in the car park. Speaking to Chris Bailey, Chairman of the Box Motor Club, he explained how the club was originally set up over four years ago from his interest in classic cars.


The Swadlincote Festival of Transport was initially launched in 2012 with over 300 vehicles taking part. Four years later, the 2016 festival saw over 600 vehicles take part ranging from classic cars to HGV Lorries. Over 10,000 members of the public visited the Festival of Transport.

Once we had found our seats, a gentleman called Keith Murfin, a local fundraiser for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service (DLRAA) approached us and began telling us more about the charity.




Mr Murfin is a volunteer representative for the DLRAA charity, he said:  
"What a warm welcome and great to receive cheques from Swadlincote Festival of Transport, the Rotary Club and Oasis, the total amount raised £2215.31 which includes donations and merchandise sales on the day. My personal thanks and the thanks of DLRAA  go to all involved in this event."


Kim Coe, Secretary of the Box Motor Club said: "It has been a total success this year." Ms Coe explained how the money raised will benefit the Community First Responders and it will enable them to buy two defibrillators. We could hear the emotion in Ms Coe’s voice and this highlighted how important the charity is to Swadlincote and its surrounding areas.

Chris Bailey also announced that there are future plans for an upcoming festival in 2017 in Ashby-De-La-Zouch town centre. 

We would like to thank the Box Motor Club for inviting us to their Presentation Evening and we look forward to partaking in future events.

Road Cones - Available for hiring

With summer approaching and schools breaking up for the six weeks holidays, lots of maintenance work will commence. When there is disruption to an area it is important to ensure the safety of both staff and the general public. Whether you are looking to hire or buy Safety Barrier Systems, we have various options available for you.


Dominator Cones
Dominator Cones are available in three heights and are great for indicating boundaries for traffic management. Consisting of a bright orange top (UV stabilised LDPE) and a Sealbrite TM R1B Sleeve, the Dominator Cone’s overall visibility is enhanced effectively. 

Featuring a weighted base measuring 250mm x 250mm for stability, the two-part moulded cone has a heavy duty base which is made from 100% composite. When not in use, they are easy to store as they have a great stacking capability due to their two-part structure.

No Waiting Cone – Warden Style
A two-part yellow No Waiting Cone is a three sided cone which is ideal for use in all environments. The base is made from 100% flexible compound, this cone eliminates the need for additional weighting.

No Waiting Cone – Conical Style
Supplied in a standard yellow with a black base, this Conical No Waiting Cone is provided as a one piece cone. With a height of 500mm, this No Waiting Cone is highly visible to road users and pedestrians when an area is cordoned off.

Customisation is available on all of these Road Cones with your own lettering and logo either at the top or bottom of the cone. We provide a highly recommended embossing service which can be discussed over the telephone along with your requirements with our Sales Team on 01283 512 111.


Frontier Barriers
Frontier Barriers have great flexibility but are also stable enough to be used on an uneven surface and kerbs. With a flexible linking system, this allows the Barriers to successfully link up with other pedestrian barriers.

Specially designed to maximise wind flow and as a result of this, Frontier Cross Link Barriers are a strong and secure traffic management barrier. To minimise the risk of tripping, Anti-Trip feet are supplied with this barrier and are highly visible.
