It was a sad day for Richard Burbridge when he finished his year of duty as the High Sheriff of Shropshire. As the Queen’s representative in the county for all judicial, law and order Richard had spent the past twelve months assisting the Crown and Magistrates’ Courts, the Police, Prison and Probation Services. However, we were incredibly delighted when Richard contacted us to provide the Marquee and furniture for his farewell event held at Shrewsbury School in April.
Our event marquee team swung into action straight away. The client brief was to provide the tent and furniture for the event with a guest list including 16 local judges, six visiting high sheriffs, the Bishops of Shrewsbury and Hereford, the Queen’s remembrancer and the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire. With our experience in corporate marquee hire and garden parties the event went off seamlessly, ensuring that Richard and his wife Patricia had a very happy ending to this year of service that neither will ever forget.
Tents and Marquees have been trading since the eighteenth century and have wide range of Marquees available for hire for all occasions. We can also provide flooring, furniture and tableware as part of our service. If you are planning a small garden party or the wedding of the year use Shropshire’s most trusted; Tents & Marquees.
