As 2014 draws to a close, there is just enough time to reflect on the past year.
We were honoured in the Summer to meet with Professor Stephen Hawking, then we helped out a madman inventor and supplied fireworks for everything from funerals to fun days from John O’ Groats to Lands End and everywhere in between.
As we wave off the last of the orders for delivery as they make their way for the final delivery trips of the year, we would like to acknowledge the couriers who have worked tirelessly for us all year around – THANK YOU ALL. We could not have done this without your help and you can have a couple of months of breather before we get into the Wedding season.
Visitors to the showroom over the last couple of months will have seen the huge metal safety suit, used by the madman that is the unstoppable Colin Furze.
Colin is famous for holding a number of World Records including the biggest bonfire, fastest pram, fastest mobility scooter and the longest motorbike at an incredible 72 feet long. In the summer, he decided to task himself with creating a safety suit to enable him to stand inside a fireworks display. The results were AMAZING. His latest adventure is to ‘boldly go ….’ and set off fireworks in space whilst filming them on HTC camera’s. I don’t want to spoil the fun so if you want to check out how he did it, visit our blog:
We have made thousands of cups of tea and coffee, hundreds of bacon, sausage and egg sandwiches, given 145 kilos of chocolates away and over 300 cans and bottles of water and juice to customers.
We have seen some of the more obscure weather conditions from heat waves to floods and snow to freezing fog and gale force winds (which ripped one of our signs apart!) but we still managed to get most of the orders out without too much drama.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers from near and far for their ongoing custom and support:
THANK YOU TO YOU ALL FOR MAKING 2014 OUR BEST YEAR AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM EVERYONE HERE AT EPIC FIREWORKs
