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”

A nice fun story for the week, we are happy to welcome back a certain Mr. Bones the lovely Keltic mascot who has made another surprise visit in the office.
We’ve all had the pleasure of looking after David’s companion over the past few weeks, giving him plenty of walks and hugs.
We couldn’t resist taking a few pictures and sharing this little cutey on the blog!
Alas! A brilliant three days at Parkex have come to a close, and our security work wear went down a storm! Did you have as much fun as us? Thank you to all of the great people who came to visit our stand throughout the week and taking part in our competitions and games!
Ever seen a bright pink security uniform? If you’ve been to Parkex today you will have done. Day two of this great exhibition has been just as hectic as the last. Even more so with the return of our famous pink parking people. After hundreds of requests yesterday, our florescent celebrities return with as much vibrancy as last year.
Wow – what a great day we have had here at Parkex at the NEC! It’s been all go since the very off! Our stand has been heaving with people throughout the day! It’s been great for us to show off our amazing security wear to so many new faces, and to catch up with some old ones too!
Thank you to everyone for the support we received at the AUCSO Conference this month, we had a blast! AUCSO (The Association of University Chief Security Officers) Conference was a great opportunity for us to meet with plenty of Universities and speak with Security Officers about their security uniforms.
Continuing with our spring trend this month, our next feature this week is stripes; Shirts, blouses, suits, scarves, ties, tops we have it all! Big on the high street we thought why not join in with the trend and show off some of our corporate wear alternatives.
Starting with shirts and blouses you’ll be spoilt for choice, our full range includes stripes in bold springtime colours or subtle shadow stripes in varying styles be it classic oxford style or fitted open collar. Add in one of our stripy corporate scarves and ties to match and your well on your way to office high end fashion.
If you want to show your style through suiting then wow your office with our striking performance collection suit in navy pinstripe, a very bold stripe to get plenty of attention. Or if you prefer the subtle approach, then try our black multi-stripe in our corporate fashion collection, a small stripe detail that adds just that little bit of colour.
These are just a taste of what we have available, if you want to see more then speak with us on 08450 66 66 99 for our complete collections.
