Gas Safety – Broadland Catering Equipment urge local businesses to sign up and support Gas Safety Week


Local catering equipment specialists Broadland Catering Equipment are urging local businesses to support Gas Safety week following a spate of gas related incidents.

The recent fatal gas explosion in Oldham and the explosion, which rocked Broadland Catering Equipment’s neighbours on Rackheath industrial estate last January, have brought gas safety into focus and the industry is keen to stress that badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. According to statistics released by the Gas Safe Register thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning each year as a result of faulty gas appliances.

Initiatives such as Gas Safety week, initiated by the Gas Safety Register and runs from 10-16 September 2012 aims to bring the gas industry and consumer organisations together to promote gas safety. Over 1,000 organisations supported the event in 2011 and the hope is to continue to grow the reach of the campaign in 2012.

Broadland Catering Equipment Director Colin Chettleburgh said “We are keen to get as many local caterers to support the Gas Safe week as possible, to ensure that we reduce the risk of more tragic or damaging gas incidents. The current focus of GasSafe and HSE is air quality and illegal gas work.”

“The most important thing for people to do is check that their Gas Safety Certificate is up to date and that their equipment has been serviced within the last 12 months. It is also important for people to test their emergency procedures in the event of a fire or gas leak are robust and ensure any gas work of any kind is carried out by engineers competent in that area of work. If they are not sure, they can ask the engineer for their card or check out the company and engineer on the Gas Safe website. Many people think a qualified gas engineer can do any kind of work. In fact, there are over 70 different gas qualifications and any engineer carrying out work they are not qualified for is potentially putting lives at risk, which is why it is a criminal offence” Colin added.

The most recent Catering Technical Bulletin issued by HSE in April this year has sharpened the focus on kitchen ventilation and extraction. Mandatory air quality tests carried out by competent engineers will assure operators that their systems are working properly and their staff are working in a safe environment.

The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI in 2010 as the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom. By law all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register.

Did you have your say on Government Red Tape?


Did you have your say on Government red tape at this morning's Broadland Business Forum?

Over 60 local business leaders came together with Broadland District Council to discuss the effect red tape is having on the business community both in Broadland and across Norfolk.

Councillors from the Local Authority met with business leaders in an open table format to work through any problems businesses face in their day-to-day operations and what the Council can do to help grease the economic wheels of the region.

The next Broadland Business Forum is due to take place on Wednesday 31st October 2012, whilst similar events will be taking place in Breckland (5th September) and South Norfolk (19th September) in the coming months.

We are 10 Years Old!


The Lively Crew is celebrating 10 years in business in July with a brand new look. The business has grown and diversified over the years to compete in an ever increasing competitive market place. A lively and experienced team mixing wise heads with the exuberance of youth, the business continues to deliver exceptional marketing activity for organisations of all shapes and sizes across a diverse range of business sectors including public and private sector organisations.

We only work with people we like and we believe we can make a difference to their business. Results driven we don't just take the money. We have no Porsches in the car park we don't have time for the test drive as we are too busy driving client business.

The Lively Crew is one  of a group of companies, wholly owned or part shared with like minded business partners. One of the founders Valerie has a keen interest in saving the planet and through two of the sister companies Fresh Pod and Enviro-Pod is one a mission to reduce energy consumption and food waste through the food supply chain. (websites). Watch this space - proven technology is starting to make a difference!

Sustainability comes in many forms and out to prove that public sector money should be used to drive economic development on an ongoing basis and not channelled into project, short term, based programmes BOLD Directories was formed. How pleasing that forward thinking teams such as those at Broadland, Breckland and South Norfolk invested in business directories for businesses and which have ultimately bought the District Councils and local businesses closer together.

Proud to be a family business. Family owned businesses have been and continues to be a major contributor to economic growth. It's not just about numbers, emotive issues are complex and at the forefront of many of family/owner controlled organisations and where many professional services focus on the revenue share and issues Trilogic Family Office works closely with families on structures and ownership issues through the generations.

So we haven't been sitting on our seats for the past decade. Life is good, business is good and the Crew are getting increasingly livelier to the benefit of our growing customer base.

The Lively Crew have recently rebranded, to coincide with 10 years in business, delivering first-class marketing, sales and events work for businesses across the private, public and third sectors has taught us a thing or two about what works and why. That is why we are offering businesses the chance to tap into our expertise with a FREE two-hour session to review your current marketing activity and how you could move forward.

Our portfolio of services and businesses has grown steadily in the last decade. Being a true full-service marketing agency we offer; Marketing Consultancy, Direct Marketing, PR, Event Management, Website Management, Copywriting, Telemarketing, Database Management and Media Buying as well as Branding and Design.

Our growth means we now operate from 34a Yarmouth Road in Norwich and The Workshop in Bridgham, meaning we have Norfolk covered.
