It is a great year to celebrate the School Crossing Patrol Service as it is their 60th Anniversary this year. In honour of this, Keltic Clothing have launched a competition for the best pictures of your celebrations. The winner will receive a bottle of champagne to help with the celebrations.

This photo shows all the goodies that were received. Cake, certificates, badges and lollipops.

Westminster Council certainly look like they had a great time. They celebrated with a Stop Sign cake and edible Stop Sign lollipops. They even got a lovely cut glass gift. The Mayor joined in with celebrations along with two of the councils longest serving SCP’s. The gentleman on the left of the picture below has done 33 years service and the lady in the middle has done 15 years service.

Peter Wilson  – Westminster Council , also had a limited edition postcard made as an extra treat for his hard working staff. Peter Wilson said the following about the limited addition post cards

 “I found this as I collect cartoons specifically Giles and Larry and it was in a book of Punch cartoons ‘Motoring through Punch1900 to 1970’ put together for the Ford motor company to give to franchised garage owners. His widow gave me permission to reproduce a limited print run which could not be for sale.”

Terence “Larry” Parkes (November 19, 1927 – June 25, 2003) was a popular cartoonist from the UK. His work, consisting largely of single drawings featuring an absurdist view of normal life, was published in many magazines and newspapers, particularly Punch and Private Eye. The pen name under which he worked was apparently inspired by the actor Larry Parks.

If you want to show off your pictures of your 60th Anniversary celebrations, please email them to me at scp@kelticclothing.co.uk  , along with a few words about what took place. Thank You

Keltic Christmas Party – A night to Remember

Blurry eyed but still standing, we all managed to survive our wild Vegas night which lasted into the early hours of the morning and as promised we have a treat of lovely photos.

Staff uniforms

We all had a fantastic time and would like to thank John and David for the lovely gesture. It was certainly one to remember particularly a certain Mr. Lines on the dance floor throwing some shapes.

What’s next? Secret Santa watch this space!

Keltic’s brand new Winter Cycle Jacket

Keltic Clothing would like to introduce our brand new Winter Cycle Jacket. It is Lightweight, breathable and waterproof. It not only protects you from the wet winter weather, it also keeps you safe on the roads. This is because our cycle jacket conforms to EN471 Class 3.

High visibility clothingAt Keltic we feel that it’s vital for cycle trainers to  have clothing that conforms to EN471 and has braces. EN471 is the European standard relating to high visibility clothing for professional use.

Each country within the EU passes legislation determining where garments to this standard should be worn. The UK’S New Roads and Street Works act (1991) stipulates that all staff working on roads must wear EN471 Class 2 or Class 3 clothing, and that EN471 Class 3 must be worn by staff working on roads with a 50 mph speed limit and above.

In addition to EN471, there are a number of other local regulations that are applicable to certain situations and which may be of relevance. The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991, relates to those working on local authority roads. The acts’ code of practice, formerly called the “Blue Book” now called the “Red Book” came into effect Feb 2002. It is advised that garments should comply with clause 4.2.3 (b) of EN471 (two 50mm bands and braces).

If you would like any more information on this or would like a sample of our cycle jackets please do not hesitate to ask. You can see our full range of cycle wear at www.kelticclothing.co.uk
