Sneak Peek into the Testing of 10 Mini Whirly Reelers!

We have an update to share with all our WhirlyReeler enthusiasts. Recently, one of our esteemed clients granted us permission to capture video footage of the testing phase for their ten new ‘mini’ WhirlyReelers. It provided us with an opportunity to observe these compact devices in action and showcase their capabilities.

Through these collaborations, we aim to continually explore innovation and deliver advanced solutions to our valued customers.

The Whirly Reeler at the ABTT Show

The ABTT Theatre Show took place once again at the stunning Alexandra Palace on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th June.

This exhibition is where the broadest collection of specialist suppliers sup- porting live performance technology and production gather to connect with those who deliver the performance in the world of theatre, events, festivals, music and more.

The ABTT Theatre Show is held at the Alexandra Palace, affectionately known as Ally Pally. This iconic building was opened in 1873 and stands very high up on a hill in North London. It stands with a massive tall communications aerial which can be seen for many miles around.

Last Wednesday, Richard Bridgman and Harry Haskew (our Controls Engineer Degree Apprentice) set out early by car for Ally Pally. They arrived on time even though the London traffic can be so unpredictable. Scott Fraser (our Estate Manager) had already taken the equipment down to the show and helped Ewart to set up the stand. The show is about the equipment used for touring shows – theatre installs, lighting, sound equipment, rigging just to name a few things. We were there to promote the “Whirly Reeler”; a joint venture financed between Rawner and Ewart and manufactured by Warren.

Being at a show and on a stand is quite challenging and both Warren and Ewart always want to maximise the time and money being spent on a stand. I would like to say that everyone who went past the stand or were an exhibitor were subjected to an education on the Whirly Reeler. We met and had a lot of interest and serious enquiries from some very high- profile organisations. Richard attended on Wednesday as Will was committed to speak at another event. Harry would say it’s quite a long and very arduous day!

Will took to the stand on Thursday, but I bet he struggled to find many that we had not spoken to the day before. It was especially good for Richard, because it enabled him to meet up with past suppliers and customers.

Bury St. Edmunds Rickshaws

Richard and Sharon have lived in Bury for many years now and have often seen people being driven around on Rickshaws. They are really a big tricycle capable of carrying two people, ridden by a volunteer.

Recently there was an appeal to sponsor one in the Bury Free Press. Up until recently “Hughes” the electrical retailer had been the sponsor for “Cary”. Richard looked into this some more and once he found out what they did, he agreed to take over the Sponsorship. In the picture, you will see our Logo on one of the Rickshaw’s (affectionally known as “Cary”) that is used purely for collecting and delivering goods, food parcels, meals, prescriptions, groceries and many other things to support those in need, with help or support. The wonderful picture of all the Rickshaws together outside the Abbey Gardens Gate tells the whole story.

This is an unbelievable organisation run by many volunteers. They now have 5 Rickshaws; one is brand new and capable of carrying a disabled person in their wheelchair. All the rides are free and generally it’s the less able who take up the opportunity, but its open to all.

Richard is now talking to a group in Thetford to see if this idea might work in the town. It’s early days but you never know…

Brandon Town CFC

On Saturday 10th June, Brandon Town CFC had its annual presentation day. Scott Fraser, our Estate Manager coaches his son’s U7 team, which was sponsored by Warren Services.

Warren provided them with their first kit, training jackets and manager’s jacket. The lads had a successful year winning the majority of their games and having several players scouted for either Norwich, Ipswich or Cambridge. This current age group are considered non-competitive, but as everyone who has a child who plays a sport knows, it’s always competitive to them, so hopefully next year will bring a bit of silverware.

“Thanks again to Warren for sponsoring our team, we really appreciate it, from everyone at Brandon Town Football Club.”
