Northamptonshire schoolchildren returning to their desks this week can look forward to a tasty and nutritious hot meal every lunchtime – even at the smallest and most rural schools in the county.
The Flourish Company, set up by the County Council’s student services department, has centralised kitchens and a fleet of vans ready to deliver to schools across the county, so that children learning at schools that don’t have a kitchen don’t miss out.
And the vehicles can now be seen on the county’s roads with smart, striking liveries produced by Signs Express (Northampton).
The brief was to provide not just consistently high quality but also a very fast and efficient turnaround as the seven vans were not delivered until August 26th and had to be completed in a week that included a bank holiday so they were ready for the start of term.
Rachael Donegan, Project Manager for Flourish Company, said: Signs Express (Northampton) have been really helpful, got the job done on time and to a very high standard, and went out of their way to meet our requirements. We are delighted with the result.”
Mark Meadowcroft, MD of Signs Express (Northampton) said: “This was a demanding job in that it involved a number of vehicles, a relatively intricate design and a short deadline. But Flourish is a very good client and we’re experts at this sort of a multi-vehicle job. I’d like to thank my team for demonstrating , not for the first time, that they can get on with this sort of job in an organised manner and deliver great quality on time and without drama.”
