Champagne prize also up for grabs in our Wheel of Fortune!
Join in the fun at stand E40 at Parkex!!!
We are all set up at Parkex, and look forward to welcoming our lovely customers to our stand today! We will have Gingerbread CEOs, candyfloss, fairground amusements, and more importantly we will be asking your opinion on the future of parking workwear – a full range of garments which we have designed in conjunction with NSL’s uniform working group. They will shortly be worn by the UK’s largest parking operation, NSL’s City of Westminster contract.
Our Brand New Parking Workwear
The Ambassador jacket is a new lightweight jacket based on a snowboarding garment, with a stylish modern cut which gives excellent movement and comfort. The Patrol Softshell is the next-generation mid-layer garment – a big move-on from the Nato Jumper of old we think you’ll agree! The Patrol Shirt is a re-imagination of the traditional pilot shirt, taking inspiration from the sportswear market, and in particular, golf shirts and football shirts.
And with the Patrol Trouser, like with all these garments, rather than thinking “what is out there already that we can use for parking staff?” we have asked “what do parking staff actually want and need in 2014?”
Come and Say Hello!
We’re really excited about hearing all the feedback on these new designs! See you there, at stand E40 by the Parkex Cafe.
So what do you think of our Road Safety cake?

We have had a brilliant weekend at Parkex, showing off our amazing Security Wear. We got to talk to so many of you about what we’re really passionate about, and we hope that you had as good a weekend as we id. With Parkex now at a close its back to normality and reflecting on all we’ve learnt over the three days. But, of course, what you really want to know, is… WHO WON THE COMPETITION?
Croydon Councils annual Junior Road Safety Officers Mayoral Presentation took place on March 27th this year. This year 36 schools took part, that’s just under 200 pupils altogether. At the presentation, the JRSO’s get rewarded for their good work in school. Here at Keltic Clothing we were honoured to supply the children with mini replicas of school crossing patrol uniforms consisting of two tone jackets and school crossing patrol signs from our Road Safety Education Range.
Throughout the year, each school must complete 2 Road Safety activities well to be able to qualify for the event. At the presentation, each school gets presented with a certificate as a reward for their achievements usually presented by the Mayor of Croydon. On this occasion it was the deputy Mayor councillor Tony Harris and his wife Mrs Harris who came to present the certificates.
Other attendees included representatives from TFL (Transport for London) and the legendary David Prowse MBE – The Green Cross Code Man! The Green Cross Code man commercials were hugely successful, over 14 years David visited over 2,000 schools and the road accidents in the UK were reduced from over 40,000 per year to less than 20,000. It also helped that David was also famous for a number of other things including playing Darth Vader in Star Wars. David Prowse spent time kindly autographing the children’s certificates.
The presentation ceremony was packed full of activities and different things. Before each child was presented with their certificate they walked over a zebra crossing and one school was picked to sing a road safety song that they had made up all by themselves – what a great success!! At the end of the presentation, each child is given a hi vis yellow goody bag containing all sorts of road safety themed goodies as a big well done to everyone for taking part.
We’d like to say a big thank you to Trevor Benham, a Road Safety Officer at Croydon Council for working with us and here’s what Trevor had to say “Eight JRSOs were selected to wear the SCP uniform. They found it a great delight marshalling other children and adults to their seats and were standing next to the exits as evacuation procedures were pointed out. You could see clearly that they thoroughly enjoyed their responsibilities and the uniforms were a big icing on the cake”
