It’s not every day you get a chance to go to ‘THE’ Palace and wander through the garden at your leisure, but for two members of our team, that’s exactly what happened.
As a member of The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), and as a holder of a Silver award (https://www.rospa.com/Awards/Winners/2019/Silver-Awards.aspx) proving our ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards, Quadratek was invited by The Lord McKenzie of Luton to celebrate RoSPA’s Centenary (https://www.rospa.com/About/History/Centenary.aspx),at their Royal Garden Party, set within the beautiful gardens of Buckingham Palace along with 3,000+ guests and attended by HRH The Duke of York and HRH Princess Eugenie of York.
Entering Buckingham Palace via The Grand Entrance, passing through the Quadrangle, The Marble Hall and into The Bow Room, we were greeted with the floral aromas as we stepped out into the stunningly designed Palace garden. Set in 40 acres, and like the Palace itself, the garden at Buckingham Palace has undergone many changes over the years.
Over the past 100 years, RoSPA, along with patrons and partners, has worked tirelessly to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by accidents through initiatives and accomplishments such as: the introduction of seat-belt, drink-drive and mobile phone laws; home safety campaigns on issues such as fire-resistant foam furnishings, fitted plugs, blind cords and liquid laundry capsules; the creation of the National Occupational Safety and Health Committee; and of course the hugely successful RoSPA Awards Scheme which itself celebrated its 60th year in 2016
