Villagefetes NEWSLETTER FOR EVENT AND LEISURE BUSINESSES
Issue Number.115 May 2012
EVERYTHING FOR EVENT AND LEISURE RELATED BUSINESSES IN ONE PLACE
Link to the Workwear Express website
This years event season has got of to a really wet start, the prolonged wet weather has effected many events over the past month with many event related businesses really feeling the financial impact of cancellations and reduced crowd sizes. However we're a resilient bunch, use to a bit of rain, mud and going home out of pocket, so lets hope we see an improvement.
Giving you and your new business a distinctive look
You and your staff will be in the publics close view constantly and with ever increasing standards people decide whether to purchase your products or buy your services based upon the professionalism and appearance of you and your business. Long gone are the days of throwing on an old apron over grubby jeans and a white t-shirt. Distinctive colour co-ordinated workwear with headwear, blouses, shirts, trousers, waistcoats and aprons are now the norm.

Business Planning
Workwear themed around your business
Working out a workwear theme that is practicable, easy to clean, hygienic and safe to wear in your work environment can be quite a challenging task. Remember you are the one wearing it day in day out in all weather so it has to be comfortable for you and your staff. Questions to ask may include:
Does your workwear need to...
1. Include your business logo or emblem?
2. Match your catering unit or amusement colour scheme?
3. Have a modern, traditional or themed look?
Look at the practicable aspects and ask...
1. Will it be worn in a hot working or cooking environment?
2. Will footwear be used on slippery, greasy or wet floors?
3. Will waterproof clothing be needed for outdoor use?
4. Can it be machine washed or need specialised cleaning?

Round Up
I think one of the best themed workwear outfits I've seen was on a mobile catering unit selling Mexican foods some years back, it was a small trailer with three people in it all wearing really huge sombrero hats. The problem was they spent more time trying to keep them on their heads as they kept knocking each others hats off as they moved. Funny to watch from outside.
