Paying Tribute to Harold Pendleton

Posted on Friday, September 29, 2017

DC Site Services was very sorry to hear of the passing of Harold Pendleton, famous for the founding of ‘The Reading Rock Festival’ with his wife, Barbara. Reading was the first of its kind and carved a pathway for Britain’s huge outdoor music scene which we see today. DC’s Dick and Janet worked with Harold for many years through several companies and played an instrumental role moving Dick and Janet into the events industry.

A true industry legend who will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

DC Site Services were appointed to manage the running of the public car park for the Aegon Open Nottingham, international tennis event. Due to the nature of the event, most vehicles arrive and depart within a short window of time at the start and end of each day’s play. DC Site Services ran a smooth operation, with their knowledge and expertise in this area and were effective in managing the vehicle flow as well as the wear and tear of the field on which the cars were parking, to ensure the delivery on day 1 was as good as the delivery on day 9.  This improvement was also recognised by our customers who referenced this specifically when asked in a survey how the event had improved compared with previous years, quoting “parking was easier”, “there were no queues to park this year”, “parking was more organised”, “car park problems from last year sorted”.
