Eve Honoured to be Involved in Commemoration Service
On Friday 13th March 2015, The Queen and members of the Royal Family led the nation in a moving service to honour the veterans and fallen of Britain's Afghanistan campaign, held at St.Paul’s Cathedral.
The service paid tribute to the bravery of the men and women who had trained, lived and fought during the 13-year long campaign, making particular mentions to those wounded and fatally injured during the conflict.
The service attracted the interest of the public, who turned up to pay their respects and Eve were honoured to play their part. Working on behalf of the City of London Police Service, crews from our Wimbledon depot worked through the night on Wednesday and Thursday preparing and installing 2,700 heavy duty crowd control barriers around the Cathedral and surrounding areas. The team worked hard during night hours to minimise disruption for the local residents, and completed the works efficiently and successfully.
The crews also played their part on the day, assisting with road closures again utilising their stock of Heavy Duty Barriers.
Mark Fisher, Eve’s Divisional Manager South said, “Eve’s staff have a great respect for what the men and women who have served in our Forces have achieved and sacrificed during this long conflict, and our team are proud to have played a very small part in ensuring the safety and security of this service, supporting the work of the Police.”
Following the Commemorative Service, hundreds of veterans marched through the streets of London, together with military aircraft flying overhead as a tribute.
