The Pop-up DIY Marquee Range

There are many different DIY Party Tents for sale or Pop up Marquees for sale although all based on the same folding tent design the difference comes down to the materials they’re made from.  The cheapest pop-up framework will use narrow and thin steel pipe, the most expensive will use thick and wide (up to 58mm) aluminium.

The covers on a pop-up tent have different demands than other marquees, it has to be far more flexible than other styles of marquee. 500d polyester with a polyurethane coating is generally seen as the most reliable material for roofs and sides with thinner, less waterproof fabric used in cheaper versions.

Pop-up marquees are ideal for those wanting a quick and easy-to-erect structure as they can be erected or dismantled in minutes. Better quality structures will be more waterproof and far stronger than other cheaper alternatives.

At DIY Marquees we only sell high-grade reliable pop-up marquees with 58mm hexagon aluminium frames and coated 500d covers.

Helen Kempster Celebrates 10 years of Service at Lodge Brothers

Helen Kempster, the Funeral Arranger at Chertsey branch, recently celebrated a decade of service with Lodge Brothers. Helen joined the Company in December 2004, and after three months training she took over the running of the branch in Chertsey. Over the years she has become a well-known member of the local community.

After 37 years’ service working for HSBC bank in the city of London, Helen retired and sought a new direction. She now lives in Hampshire and so has a 45-minute commute to Chertsey, but makes the trip daily to support her families in their ‘hours of need’.

“This is the best job I have ever had,” Helen explains, “and Lodge Brothers funeral directors Chertsey are a super company to work for. Here’s to the next ten years!”

Another interesting articles about Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors Ashford held their annual Christmas Memorial and Thanksgiving Service recently.

The service, which took place at St Matthew’s Church on Sunday 14th December, was attended by over 180 people who have experienced bereavement in recent months. They came along to remember their loved ones, give thanks and light a candle in a moving hour-long service led by Father Stuart King and arranged by Lodge Brothers’ District Manager, Richard Leachman.

St Matthew’s Church choir sang, ably led by organist Philip Buckmaster, and local musician Robert Goodhew played a beautiful piece on his saxophone.

Afterwards, refreshments were served by Lodge Brothers’ staff.

“This service is always a highlight of our community’s Christmas” said Mr Leachman. “To remember those we have loved and lost is particularly poignant at this time of year. Many people thanked us with tears in their eyes, grateful for the opportunity to keep alive the memory of their loved ones, for no-one is ever truly gone while there are those who remember them with thankfulness in their hearts.” “It was such a fitting end to a long life well-lived”.

Mad hatters Tea Party in Askew Road where fun was had by all.

May Madness comes to Askew Road in Shepherds Bush on Saturday 17th May. The local people were greeted by an Alice in Wonderland themed event organised by The Chelsea Fringe.

May Madness saw Morris Dancing, Stilt Walking, and May Pole Dancing and of course The Mad hatters Tea Party laid on by Maureen Lee and her daughter and granddaughter. The local residents were delighted with their EAT ME! Cupcakes and DRINK ME! Cups of orange squash provided free of charge by Barnes & Sons Funeral Directors.

Barnes and Sons also arranged a colouring competition for the local children with a prize for the best entry, the sun shone and the day was a great success.
