Keeping in touch!

Posted on Wednesday, June 3, 2020

For many of us, we can’t help but think about which festivals we’d ordinarily be working at right now, the desperate amongst us even setting up tents in our back gardens! The hardest part of lockdown has undoubtedly been missing our friends and family, working at the festivals has never just been a job, it’s also a way of forging long-lasting relationships with people we might not otherwise meet – people you may be missing right now. So, because of this, we’d like to touch base with some familiar faces (or people you may only recognise by name or by the sound of their voice over the phone/radio) to say a virtual hello.

This week we’ve caught up with Dan and Summer whom you may recognise from both the office and from working onsite. Summer has used this time to try her hand at a plant-based diet, experimenting with new recipes and meat substitutes, while Dan has used his time to complete an online Health & Safety course which he hopes to incorporate into his work in the future. More hilariously, while the gyms are closed Dan has substituted the weight bench for Summer’s legs as ballast (clever!) and has also become an amateur hair bleacher for Summer, who, unfortunately decided to go platinum blonde just before the salons closed (bad luck there, Summer).

As lock-down restrictions have eased, Dan and summer have made the most of their time by exploring the countryside, going for walks and picnics and have even booked their next holiday abroad (ever the optimists!)

We’d also love to hear from some of regular crew! If you’d like to share a little about how you’ve been keeping, then simply email in a few words and an (appropriate) image that you feel best sums up this experience for you and we will share this with the rest of the DC family.

Keep well, and we hope to hear from you!

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”.
