On 30th & 31st July 2011 Lakes Garage Doors attended the Cumbria Steam Gathering. One of our main suppliers Garador kindly lent us their exhibition trailer. When we arrived on the Saturday morning the weather was glorious and forecast to last all day. We had a great pitch not far from the main area with plenty of passing trade and by 9am we had the trailer set up and running. The trailer is equipped with a fully working automatic Garador Gararoll roller garage door, powered by our generator and has samples of the different Garador up and over doors.
The stand was creating plenty of interest but then at around lunch time our generator decided to stop working preventing the roller garage door from working! After a quick hunt round the other trade stands we found a stand selling generators. The deal was done and a very heavy generator was carried half way across Cark Airfield and we were back in action! The fine weather carried on right up until closing time and plenty of leads were generated.
Day 2 the weather was overcast but fortunately dry. Sunday seemed even busier than Saturday with people coming from far and wide to see the steam fair, again we took lots of enquiries and packed up ready for 5pm after two really great days.
We will also be doing a garage doors Garstang exhibition at the Garstang Show on 6th & 7th August 2011 and will be back with our working roller garage doors.
