How your local independent storage company gets involved in the local community
We like to do storage differently at The Storage Pod. Being a completely independent storage company we have been providing bespoke storage solutions that come with a friendly personal service, competitive pricing and flexible facilities for over nine years – and firmly value our place and reputation in the local Weybridge and Surrey area.
To this extent, every year we get involved in a whole heap of local engagement to give back, show support and get the opportunity to meet local people and businesses outside of Pod HQ.
Showing our support for sport we are keen supporters of Cobham Rugby Club and Esher & Weybridge Cricket Clubs. Our sponsorship and support provides more opportunity for young players to get involved in the clubs and for much needed funding for all ages to take part in tournaments and competitions – and for the clubs to provide equipment and kit. We enjoy getting out as often as possible to watch matches and support our local teams.
For the last few years we have supported the Elmbridge Fun Day. Located just moments from The Storage Pod facilities, the annual event is held at Brooklands Community Park, offering heaps of fun and activities for all the family to enjoy. This year we sponsored the giant 30ft bungee slide – testing visitors head for heights.
And an event more focused on the adults, although it was all in support of young people, was The Oatlands Beer Festival. The event was a chance for locals to enjoy top of the range Ales, Lagers & Ciders, a Prosecco Bar, Gin Bar, local wines from Surrey, Sussex & Hampshire – and we were in charge of our sponsored barrel of Potbelly Beer, proving pigs do fly after sampling the single hopped beer. Every penny spent at the event goes to support young people in the Oatlands Scout Troop so we were more than delighted to be involved.
The local event calendar may be drawing to a close for this year, but The Podette’s are looking forward to getting out and about in the local community in 2018.
