Providing Security Services for Community Events

Following the success of their last artisan market in September, Edgbaston Village will be hosting its next market this Friday 8th October, along Greenfield Crescent in the heart of the village on the Calthorpe Estate.

Working with Boffy Markets, the Calthorpe Estates team, who are responsible for creating Edgbaston Village, carefully select stall holders selling local handmade food and drink produce, along with arts and crafts. The artisan market boasts handmade pies, courtesy of Rourke’s Pies to sustainable tipples from Wildjac, through to stunning local illustrations and jewellery. With a broad selection of shops and eateries within Edgbaston Village, visitors are encouraged to come along, enjoy the market and the range of delights on offer.

Watch Systems has a long standing working relationship with Calthorpe Estates, the well-established security business based in Edgbaston, is delighted to be providing their services to the Edgbaston Village Artisan Market and support the community event.

Why does a local market require security?

Most of us are accustomed to seeing security cameras in retail stores, yet we may not associate the same security risks within a local pop-up market. While the security needs may be different, the reality is that an outdoor market is not immune to theft, loss or damage to property, anti-social behaviour and organised crime.

Speaking about the event, Simon Trimmer, Director of Watch Systems said:

“We’re proud to be working with Taybar Security, a neighbouring man-guarding business, to make the event safe and successful. We will be carefully blending security with subtlety to ensure the safety of all stakeholders.”

Security at the Edgbaston Village Artisan Market is a welcomed addition. It will go a long way in giving the City’s traders and shoppers reassurance and peace of mind.
