Buckingham Palace – Coronation Festival 11th-14th July

Posted August 16th 2013 by admin

Shaun,

On behalf of my wife & I, I would like to re-iterate my thanks for a wonderful day and, in particular, evening on Friday.

I think the saying goes, ‘you had to be there’, and you were of course, as demonstrated on the attached photo, which I hope will be a nice memento for you.

It is hard to describe the actual pleasant experience and atmosphere in words. Magical really !

I really enjoyed the company of the rest of the guests, and it made it a truly special night.

Also, I must also express my thanks to Dawn for all the arrangements, as that on its own made to a successful day.

Kind regards

Andy & Sally-Ann

Buckingham Palace – Coronation Festival 11th-14th July

Posted August 16th 2013 by admin

Dear Dawn

My wife and I attended the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace on Saturday by your kind invitation. We enjoyed our time at the Festival immensely and of course the weather was very kind. In fact it was forecast to be very hot from mid-day onwards and we took the opportunity of the 9.30 entrance with the tickets you sent to be there in the morning when the heat was less oppressive.

I had hoped to be able to thank you personally for making the arrangements when I visited the Calders & Grandidge stand at the Festival but we did meet your colleagues and spent some time on the stand.

Please pass on my thanks for the invitation as appropriate and thanks from us once again for a lovely day in the wonderful setting of Buckingham Palace gardens.

Best wishes

Revesby Country Fair

Posted August 12th 2013 by admin

Dear Angie

I am writing to thank you for once again providing us with some very smart gates which we hung for our entrance to the main ring. They really helped to give a professional finish to the main ring and set the tone for the events.

We had a fantastic Revesby this year and are very pleased indeed with the turnout from the public. We received a great many comments about all aspects of the fair and are just relieved that we didn’t get too  wet like we did last year!

Many thanks once again for all that you have done. It takes a lot of time and effort from an awful lot of people to pull of Revesby so we really do appreciate your help and hope that you enjoyed being part of our ‘Revesby’ team once again.

Many thanks again and best wishes,

 

John Rose - Chairman

For and on behalf of the Revesby Country Fair Committee

Calders and Grandidge Sponsored Tom Fisher, G&S Kawasaki Racing at Brands Hatch

Posted July 30th 2013 by admin

Team G&S Racing Kawasaki enjoyed a top weekend at Brands Hatch over the weekend when both riders rode to strong points finishes, Tom Fisher being 10th in the Superstock 600 race and Dominic Usher recording his first points finish of the season in the Superstock 1000 class with a fine 11th place.

In the Superstock 600 class Nottingham rider Tom Fisher rode through to 10th place after battling in a large group of riders for sixth throughout the 12 laps. His progress was hampered by a high speed crash in morning warm up when he lost the front at Clearways and was sent tumbling into the gravel. The team worked well to get the bike up and running and back through scrutineering prior to the start of the race, just making it in time for Tom to take his place on the second row of the grid ahead of the warm up lap. As the race got underway Tom maintained sixth position during the first five laps but was beaten back to seventh one lap later. As the effects of his earlier crash began to take their toll Tom lost momentum and finally completed the race in 10th place to pick up a further six championship points and consolidate his 10th place in the overall rider standings.

Tom Fisher – I took a fair bit of skin off my arm in the crash and didn’t have the confidence in the front end to push too hard; but I had a good battle within the group challenging for sixth place and came away with another six championship points. Credit due to my team who worked so hard to get me back out there after the crash this morning, also thanks to all the team sponsors for their continued support.

A rejuvenated Dominic Usher from Beverley completed his qualifying in 14th place to start the Superstock 1000 race from a fourth row grid position, his best qualifying to date. As the lights went out at the start of the 15 lap affair Dominic got away to a steady start avoiding the bumping and boring at Paddock Hill on the first lap. He was quick to settle into his rhythm and made progress to 16th place on the fourth lap.By lap nine he had passed James East and Lee Johnston to move up into a points scoring position and on the last lap he overtook Pete Ward to claim a career best result of 11th to pick up five championship points.

Dominic Usher – I am delighted with my result here today. Throughout qualifying I was on the pace and it just goes to show that a good grid position makes for a good result. Eleventh is my best ever result in this class and I have got myself up onto the points table. Its on to Oulton Park next and I am keen to add to my points tally there.

Mark Fisher -Team manager – What a weekend for the team, both riders have done so well. The crash this morning put Tom on the back foot but we all pulled together to get the bike prepared for the race. I have to thank our sponsors, The Yorkshire Lads who rolled their sleeves up and helped us and also Steve at Buildbase who helped us with the forks.

Dominic really pulled out all the stops today and gave us a strong points finish. He has been improving throughout the season and its finally come together for him. Points are like buses, one comes along and another four follow!

The next round is at Oulton Park in Cheshire in three week’s time, August 9-11 when both riders will be hunting down top results to add to their points tally.
