Velopost and Pattersons.

As one of Bristol's oldest business still trading in Bristol, catering & cleaning suppliers, Pattersons, wanted to mark turning 125 years old by holding a large event to thank staff, customers and the local community for their continued support. 

Marketing Assistant Rebecca Tebbutt  explains "We wanted to throw a party that reflected our remarkable success whilst also looking forward to our future. That's why we teamed up with the freshest talent in the catering and bar industry, Michelin star chef Josh Eggleton and 5 times world cocktail flarier Tom 'Dangerous' Dyer, who provided free masterclasses, in the bid to inspire future generations of local talent.  We also had leading industry brands demonstrating the latest cleaning innovations and catering products to hit the market. "

The all things catering and cleaning suppliers are still a family owned company spanning four generations. However, reluctant to rest on their laurels, the company is always keen to adopt a fresh approach and are avid supporters of green business practices, as demonstrated by their ISO 14001 accreditation.

"When we were planning the event we knew we had to make our invitations special and an invitation to Velopost’s Urban Green launch provided the inspiration. Velopost provides a cycle delivery service in Bristol and Bath which meant that each of our invitations could be hand delivered. Importantly given our green credentials it also provided us with carbon neutral option and a nod to Bristol’s green ethos.

Additionally Velopost created our own special customised stamps and were even able to make a last minute addition to include our commemorative hot air balloon. " Rebecca added.

The production and delivery methods proved to add a sense of occasion, whilst successfully enabling the company to leverage their event to build awareness of the company's presence on Winterstoke Road, Bristol. This was demonstrated through a high response rate and positive guest feedback.
"It was a pleasure to work with the Velopost team, right form initial consultation to pick up and delivery, we received a consistent and efficient service, meaning all our attention could be focused on planning the event.  We also recognise that to reach another 125 year's benchmark, we need to support any local businesses that promote sustainability, so we shall definitely be using Velopost in the future."
