Remembrance Memorial at Blackpool Victoria Hospital
News

To commemorate the First World War Centenary, Signs Express (Central Lancashire) assisted Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in installing a 5:1 replica of the Menin Gate memorial flowered in over 30,000 hand-knitted poppies.

Signs Express (Central Lancashire) had already completed smaller projects for the hospital so were thrilled to be commissioned for this outstanding memorial. Using All Print Supplies LG Hausys Interior Film (ML56 Travertine White) paired with Metamark UK Ltd printing vinyl, the Central Lancashire branch was able to transform a beautifully designed MDF structure into the Menin Gate by applying over 90 metres of printed vinyl to represent the red bricks, plaques and decorative features.

Despite challenges including all the grain on the stonework having to be applied horizontally which required immense attention to detail, this week-long operation was still a huge success. Matt Rutlidge of Signs Express (Central Lancashire) commented “We’re absolutely over the moon with how this turned out, especially knowing how much it means to everyone involved. Tom Smith and I really enjoyed the challenging installation and hats off to our designer, Tom Van-Boyd who did an excellent job recreating some of the more detailed features of the memorial.” The memorial will be on display for the Remembrance service at Blackpool Victoria Hospital on November 9th between 10am and 12pm. Associate Director of Facilities for the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Nigel Fort, commended the Central Lancashire branch’s efforts on this project and previous ventures, stating:

I have worked with Signs Express on two prominent projects for the Trust in the last few months and have been delighted with the quality of the finished product, especially as they were both very innovative in nature. This is matched by the professionalism, commitment and passion of everyone in the team who I have dealt with. We will certainly be working with them on a wide range of future initiatives and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services as much for the way in which they conduct themselves as for the high quality of their products and workmanship.Nigel FortBlackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
