The Merstham Mix Cafe

New Look for Community Café thanks to Stocksigns

The Merstham Mix, a new ‘not for profit’ café based in the Merstham Community Hub, has been given a fresh look due to signage donated by local sign company, Stocksigns Ltd.

The café, located on Portland Road, opened its doors late last year with the aim of  bringing the local community together, while providing healthy and affordable meals, using ingredients donated from local supermarkets and food producers.

Stocksigns Project Manager David Cload explains how they came to be involved. “When Stocksigns were contacted and asked to support the project, we were more than happy to help. It’s a very worthwhile scheme and as a local business we are pleased to be able to support such initiatives. Not only that, but the café has now become a lunchtime favourite of the Stocksigns staff!”

The company provided an array of branded internal signs, window stickers and displays in the vibrant café colours.

“We would like to thank Stocksigns for all their help” said Anna Rooke, Volunteer Manager at the café. “The signs look great and have really helped to put our café on the map”

The Merstham Mix is open at selected times, Monday – Saturday.

Festival

Why signage is key to a successful event…

As the UK grin and bear the icy cold weather, the warm sunny days seem a lifetime away, but it will be here before we know it, and the Country fairs, music and food festivals will be in full swing once again. Many people will already be organising which festivals they want to attend, and if you are organising an event you will most likely be well under way into the planning.

To help with the smooth running of any event you will have in-depth plans set up for all areas, and an important factor of these plans will be signage.

Navigating through any sort of event can be stressful and confusing, but with clear signage you can easily guide both the public and staff to key areas and facilities around your site. Not only will this keep everyone stress free but it will help control risks and keep visitors safe.

Refreshments, First Aid, Parking, Toilets and Fire Assembly Point are some of the main areas you will probably want signage for. These could be directional signs to lead the way, signs to mark the locations or informational signs.

                           

FirstCallSigns, part of the StockSigns Group, have a wide selection of signs in stock to cater for your festival, but if you cannot find exactly what you need, we can create bespoke signs with your branding, custom text, imagery and colours.

Signs are supplied on a 4mm or 10mm Correx for easy fixing and removal to minimise time and effort when setting up your festival.
