Peterborough Arena Partnership
Having announced a commercial partnership last year, which saw local construction business Mick George Ltd become a key sponsor of the East of England Arena and Events Centre, relations have been further strengthened as the construction business advances its contractual support at the popular entertainment and events destination.
Moving forward, Mick George Ltd will provide Waste Management, Facilities Management and Maintenance service for all associated works conducted at the location, reinforcing the positive business environment that currently exists in the region, with two iconic brands combining.
The remit of the agreement will permit the East of England showground to improve their environmental credentials courtesy of Mick George Ltd’s ability to better manage waste handling, collection, recycling and disposal requirements.
All bins and skips will be switched over in the coming months to the organisations recognisable Yellow containers, that are becoming an increasingly frequent sight in the area.
In addition, all onsite equipment and system - repairs, upgrades and testing, will be available around the clock, 24-7 to ensure the premises are continuously operational without disruption. Most notably, this will include plumbing, electrical, heating, security and emergency needs.
With an impressive list of activities already scheduled for the forthcoming year, huge audiences are anticipated at the venue, for which it is imperative that the Showground will be fully functional and presented in the best possible manner. Mick George Ltd’s capability to deliver these variables was a key factor in the decision to appoint the local organisation.
Jason Lunn, General Manager at the East of England Showground said: ‘’We are delighted to announce that our already long-standing relationship with Mick George Ltd has further developed. This will see our facilities and in particular our business-critical systems professionally maintained, managed and assessed as part of one overall contract. This should bring obvious efficiencies, for which we are extremely happy.’’
Angus Wilmot, Operations Manager at Mick George Ltd commented: “We originally became a sponsor in 2014 and over the last four years have developed a fantastic relationship that continues to blossom.”
He continued: “The East of England Arena and Evens Centre is one of Peterborough’s most versatile indoor and outdoor facilities, which hosts a diverse range of entertainment, exhibitions and corporate occasions. We are proud of our affiliation with the Arena and its staff and are pleased to upgrade our partnership.”
‘’Agriculture and specifically Landowners are fundamental to some of the core services our business provides, for this reason we’re always keen to assist this audience wherever possible.’’
