The winter snow began to fall in Scotland over the weekend and it may just be coming our way. Enjoy Keltic Clothing’s full page parking review feature which gives plenty of ideas to help civil enforcement officer uniforms this winter. We have introduced our brand new coiled snow grips which are ten times as effective along with our new Patrol Mitt.
Civil Enforcements Officers have to carry on working whatever the weather; we hope our brand new winter accessories are an ideal addition to the civil enforcement officer uniform.
These items can be found on our Uniform Department page, and the first 50 local authorities to call will qualify for a FREE SAMPLE of the brand new Patrol Mitt – call 08450 66 66 99 and ask for Vicki for further details.
There are certainly some strong opinions out there when it comes to traffic wardens – but the positive aspects of their job, such as their contribution to keeping traffic moving, are rarely acknowledged.
Aberystwyth on the Welsh coast is an interesting case study in what would happen without traffic wardens, or civil enforcement officers (CEOs) as they’re now known. The Police have recently handed over the enforcement of parking infringements to the Council – however it will take up to one year for the Council to put the new CEOs in place. As a result, there is no one enforcing parking infringements in Aberystwyth.
What was originally thought of as a “motorist’s paradise”, however, has turned into more of a nightmare. It has been reported that friction and even punch-ups have arisen due to the free parking. One resident remarked, “I never thought I’d say it but I want the traffic wardens back!”. It seems that the citizens of Aberystwyth are longing for the peace and harmony provided by the good old familiar civil enforcement officer uniforms! The silent majority want to park without hassle and recognise the importance and value of civil enforcement officers.
Chamber of Commerce chair Chris Mackenzie-Grieve, recently added further food for thought: “It may seem great for motorists, but for traders, visitors and the disabled looking for parking spots it’s not a laughing matter.”

On Tuesday 28th June we sponsored the combined Healthcare and Higher Education Special Interest Group meeting, a British Parking Association event, at the Royal Horticultural Halls Conference centre in the heart of Westminster. On the walk from the tube station, we saw lots of Westminster’s very smart looking Civil Enforcement Officers, who we’ve recently kitted out in a smart new civil enforcement officer uniform.
The group had two new chairs, Ian Goodman of Manchester Metropolitan University and Laura Kelly of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Kings Lynn, who did a fantastic job. The meeting had the highest attendance we’ve seen at a BPA meeting so far, and we really enjoyed meeting lots of new faces from the university and healthcare sectors. The event gave us a great opportunity to show off our civil enforcement officer uniforms to both existing and potential clients.
Helen Dolphin of Disabled Motoring UK gave a superb talk on providing parking for disabled motorists, and there were a number of other really interesting talks, including Terry Vass from Brunel University on how they’ve drastically reduced their crime rate with the help of the Safer Parking Scheme, as well as Mark Biggs of the Metropolitan Police. We particularly liked Mark’s comment that hospitals and universities are like towns, with very similar parking problems.
Half way through the day it was looking like the attendees could have used one of our new Patrol Macs because the heavens truly opened – but thankfully it had dried up when home-time came around!
We did our famous business card draw, and the winner of a huge bottle of champagne – a jeroboam, no less – was Emma Marshall of Precision Parking. Congratulations Emma!!
We just wanted to say thanks very much to everyone who stopped by our stand at Parkex last week. We had a brilliant time seeing all our lovely customers again, as well as meeting new potential ones (along with a few Star Wars characters!). Parkex is such a tremendous opportunity to get everyone under one roof and show off our civil enforcement officer uniforms in a fun environment.
Thanks for the superb feedback we got on our new products the Magnum Strider and the Patrol Cap, and for all the new ideas about future products that you shared with us. We promise to come back next year with lots more civil enforcement officer uniform innovations. Do get in touch for a free uniform consultation if we can help with anything in the meantime or if you’d like to arrange a free trial of any of our garments.
