Janet, Tents & Events
How have you (your business) gone the extra mile during lockdown or post-lockdown?
During the lockdown, we’ve been busy helping out Argyll & Bute Council with local food distribution and also with NHS in providing secure structures for the drive through test centres.
What have you missed most about not being open over the last three months?
I think the team would all agree that we miss the buzz from doing all the different types of events and weddings. Usually when the season starts it’s all hands-on deck for us.
What have you learned about your community during this time?
The community has really come together during this time to provide excellent services for those in need, in particular the food hubs. It’s a huge operation to deal with, but it has been handled exceptionally. Our marketing company has also been very generous in lending us a helping hand through these hard times.
What do you love most about living and working here?
It’s a beautiful part of the country, if not the world, and we’re so fortune we get to experience it everyday, from our doorstep. The pace of life here is something I much prefer over somewhere like the city.
Any special stories about someone or a business in your area that has gone that extra mile during lockdown that makes you smile?
I would say that the Burgh halls have really gone that extra mile in providing a ‘community hub’ for everyone. They’ve completely transformed their venue to be able to support the food distribution needed for the greater areas.
Your favourite hidden secret spot or activity in Argyll and the Isles?
I love travelling around the shores of Loch Lomond, there’s always something new to find each time I go.
Three words to sum up how you're feeling now that we're out of lockdown?
Events need supported.
