Since January we have been inundated with entries from all over the UK. Thrilled with this, we have decided to extend our competition until the end of May so that we can give awards to even more SCP’s! In case you haven’t yet heard about our School Crossing Patrols Competition, here is a recap of what you could win, and how to enter.

Street Feet Kit Road Safety Training Kit | A Community Asset | Testimonial

As many of you know, Keltic Clothing stock for next day delivery, one of the best resources for Road Safety Education: the Street Feet Road Safety Training Kit. It is a product that we are particularly proud of as we know what a great resource it is for teaching children about road safety. We love it when we get to hear about people’s use of the kit with children in their community. That’s why we were thrilled when recently the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recently informed us of the great work that they have been doing with one of our kits.

Call Out For Long-Serving School Crossing Patrols!

In 2014 Keltic announced a competition. We wanted to find the longest serving School Crossing Patrols in the country. These SCP’s would be given awards and prizes in acknowledgement of their service. The competition turned out to be very popular. We received a huge number of entries, and the hard work of SCP’s all over the UK was recognised. Due to the popularity of the competition we have decided to do it all over again!

How To Keep Your Staff Warm This Winter | Winter Workwear

Happy new year to all of our customers! We hope you had a lovely Christmas! After a restful break the team at Keltic are enjoying getting back into the rhythm of working life. There’s one thing that we’re not so keen on, though – the cold! After the mild weather we had over the Christmas period, temperatures are plunging at the moment. With some really wintry weather on the horizon, you’ll want to double check that your staff workwear is resilient to the cold. In this article we’ll advise on the kinds of garments that could really make a difference to your staff uniform’s warmth and comfort. Firstly we’ll address outdoor wear (for security guards, wardens and SCPs) and then we’ll turn to indoor corporate wear.

Keltic Are Getting Silly For A Serious Cause

Once again as a Keltic Tradition we have all dug out our Christmas Jumpers in the Aid of Charity, this year we are raising funds for the Save the Children Charity Appeal.

Save the Children’s Vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. They Aim to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

This year alongside wearing a Christmas Jumper, we have all bought in some cakes and we are having a cake sale, as you can imagine there is a lot of cake, but it’s all for a good cause. We have also run a sweepstake to help increase the total fundraising amount.

Further to the fundraising instead of sending Christmas cards this year, we will be making a charity donation to St Giles Hospice, a local charity that gives specialist care and support free of charge to patients and families who are living with cancer and other illnesses.

At this point we’d like to take the time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This year has been one of great developments for us and our customers. We look forward to working with you in 2017!

Road Safety Week 21st – 27th November

In line with Road Safety week, we thought why not put up a short post to remind everyone of the great road safety products and school crossing patrol uniforms we have to offer! To celebrate we have just launched our brand new brochure! Collect your copy by emailing scp@kelticclothing.co.uk.

Being safe on the roads is one of the most important things to learn, so through road safety education tools such as our exclusive Street Feet kits and role play equipment, this does the trick in teaching children all they need to know in terms of safety.

Not just educational props, we also strive to provide the best School Crossing Patrol uniforms on the market. Our Superior and Standard Stop Range of jackets, gloves and trousers offer the best visibility for Patrols when working in turbulent conditions through the winter.

And we couldn’t finish this post without a quick mention of RSGB which was a huge success again this year in Bristol. Thank you to everyone who visited out stand to say hello and share a cupcake. It was great to chat with new and existing customers.

We call this interactive Road Safety training kit Street Feet.

What Makes the Perfect SCP Stop Sign?

A School Crossing Patrol’s job can be tiring. They work in every weather, on their feet constantly, carrying around a particularly cumbersome object: a stop sign. Five years ago we set ourselves a mission to make SCP’s jobs easier. We decided to drastically improve the SCP stop sign. After a great deal of research on what would make the perfect stop sign, here’s what we came up with.
