Summer is almost here - does your event need Loomis Special Services?

Time flies and with June here already, summer is just a few weeks away!

With it comes the assurance that with so many festivals and events planned for the upcoming months there’ll be something to suit even the most discerning socialite - and occupy those warm sunshine-filled days and endless hazy evenings.

Crowds enjoy an event supported by Loomis Special Services

Once again there’ll be the culinary delights of the Essex Festival of Food & Drink, the real ale served at the Great British Beer Festival and the opportunity to “rock out” at the Isle of Wight Festival. Of course, that’s just a few and there will be literally thousands of events held up and down the country over the coming months.

And once again, aside from good fun, all of them have one fundamental in common … the gargantuan efforts of the marshals, organisers and vendors who make every one of those events possible. Their months of hard work and planning brought to life - culminating in a few days of extremely stressful hard work to deliver an event that you and/or your family members can really enjoy!

And it’s not just them. Our staff will also be busily supporting every one of our customers with their cash management needs through the Summer– particularly the Loomis Special Services team.

From delivering floats prior to ‘curtains up’ to collecting hard-earned takings at the agreed time from a local festival, the Special Services team will be working tirelessly to get cash safely to the bank while mitigating any risk of loss along the way.

And with unique challenges present for each event, the team will plan customer collection or delivery schedules that factor in each event’s unique set of location, timings, and customer cash demand. Of course anything from local traffic diversions surrounding the event grounds to security intelligence at the venue, can force impromptu changes but thankfully all of our customers trust and appreciate the flexible and dynamic approach Loomis takes – that’s generally why they choose to work with us year after year.

So, whether you’re sipping a beer, tapping your toes or thrashing an air-guitar, please give a thought to those that make those events possible - the hard work and the planning that help you make your memorable moments!

And of course if you’re an event organiser … why not speak to the Loomis Special Services team to find out how they can help make sure that all that hard work pays off!
