The camera never lies…
At least that’s what they used to say, that was of course in the days before photoshop and all the other applications which have since been invented.
But our photo is most definitely not a lie. And nor is it a photo of possibly the biggest miniature dachshund in the world; it is fact a picture of what might be the smallest wet-floor sign in world, and a souvenir of a fabulous day spent at the offices of Scot Young Research (SYR), where Elliot Evans and Sarah Porter hosted our 2017 Summer members meeting.
Elliott explained how the tiny wet-floor signs are used by the SYR staff as a novel business card! Certainly these are the sort of card you’d not forget in a hurry, and we were delighted that everyone from the DCA was given their own little wet-floor sign to take home with them.
The theme for the day was “buckets” and as an icebreaker everyone was invited to introduce themselves and speak about one item on their bucket-list. Our Patron Delia Cannings captured the hearts of everyone in the room when she told us that top of her bucket-list was to take her grandchildren to Lapland to see Santa Claus whilst they were still young enough to appreciate the magic of the experience. As well as catching up on everything to do with the DCA, our members were also given a tour of the showrooms at SYR, where Sarah demonstrated the latest range of floor cleaning equipment.
The products we saw were very well liked by our members. Our sector of the cleaning industry has its own unique problems, one of which is that we require cleaning equipment which is stronger and more durable than the domestic stock which anyone can buy on the high street, but at the same time is compact enough to fit into a car to take from house to house. So many of the SYR products tick that box.
We are indebted to everyone at SYR for their hospitality and making our day the success it was, and for helping to support the Domestic Cleaning Alliance as we continue to grow.
