Piggotts Provide Support for the Tsunami
Piggotts, the Crown Group’s marquee and furniture hire supplier provided two large hospitality marquees for a recent Tsunami Memorial Service at St Paul’s Cathedral.
This prestigious event was hosted by The Department of Culture, Media and Sport, headed by the Secretary of State M.P. Rt Hon Tessa Jowell, in remembrance of the U.K. victims of the Indian Ocean tragedy last Boxing Day. In attendance was H.M. Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and 1250 survivors and their families together with the families of many victims. The occasion was broadcast live on TV and Radio and aired all around the world.
Once the service had concluded at St Paul’s, the congregation and guests retired to the hospitality marquees for refreshments. Says Bryan Ribbans, Sales Manager of Piggotts,” This was just the job that Piggott’s specialises in. It had all the elements that make marquee build’s ‘interesting. The largest marquee was 20m wide x 40m long and sited (actually ‘shoe-horned’ – it was a tight fit!) into Paternoster Square 100 yards from the Cathedral. The other, 12m wide x 50m long, was positioned right outside the Cathedral entrance.” He continues, “Once again, Piggotts is proud to be selected to carry out such a demanding build demonstrating that the small close-knit team based at Ongar are capable of building first-class structures when the eyes of the world are upon them, and against the clock.”
