Festive greetings from Deans
Awnings and canopies have tremendous practical uses including solar control to provide cooling of interiors, protection from the rain to enable commercial customers to enjoy al fresco dining and as a focal point to show the entrance to a building. The aesthetic impact of an awning or canopy can also be used to signpost a customer by the application of branding graphics and this has been especially achieved by the application of graphics using our RAGS® system of graphic application.
However, awnings can also be used to emphasis particular occasions such as business anniversaries or different seasons and these examples show how some of our customers have used their awnings and canopies to accentuate the festive nature of their own particular Christmas season. Below are some examples of how festive decorations have been used in partnership with the awnings which we have supplied to present an attractive and festive ambience.
The first example of street decoration in London was Regent Street when the first Grand Event was held in 1954 and this has spread to major thoroughfares all over the country.
Then of course every year since 1947, the people of Oslo have gifted London a Christmas tree as a thank you for Britain’s support for Norway in WWII. And all 25meters of it are draped in traditional vertically strung fairy lights, with regular carol concerts and a nativity procession with a full brass band taking place below it over the Christmas period.
We take this opportunity at Deans to wish all our customers, past and present, and their families the very best Christmas greetings and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
