Putting things into perspective: Debbie’s thoughts on the past few months
Published on July 21, 2020
As you may know, The Mayfield Group celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, and I really didn’t think it would be possible to have a more noteworthy year in 2020. The Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown period has impacted each and every one of us, 2020 will certainly be an unforgettable year for The Mayfield Group.
Following the latest advice from the Government, I am so pleased to have the team back in the office following the furlough period. It’s also great to welcome some new faces to both office and warehouse teams. We have now extended our opening hours and our Sales and Support teams will be available from 08:00am to 17:30pm each weekday.
What has The Mayfield Group been up to during lockdown?
We are proud to be the leading uPVC decking suppliers in the country and during COVID-19 we found a new use for our uPVC. We’ve been creating bespoke social distancing barriers and gorgeous planters to help holiday parks to reopen safely. These made-to-measure barriers look great and can also help you to protect your visitors and your staff.
Of course, we are still manufacturing and installing our famous uPVC decking and quality sundeck accessories. We’ve been working on some great bespoke projects, enhancing outdoor living areas for park homes around the country. Each of our Approved Suppliers is now back in action and working full-time hours, offering national coverage for our quality uPVC decking. To find your nearest installer, check out our new and improved Mayfield Decking Suppliers page.
What positives can we take away from the past few months?
All businesses have been and continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus, but the Tourism Industry, in particular, was put under real strain. It was great to see parks, hotels, tourist information centres and more pull together to promote the #DontCancelPostpone message.
As we head into the “Summer of the Staycation”, it is great to be working with some of the most beautiful parks around the UK again, if you are interested in our decking, accessories or other bespoke solutions get in touch – we love a challenge!
What can we look forward to?
Normally at this time of year, we would be in the middle of a busy Summer period, attending shows and exhibitions around the UK. Personally, I always enjoy these shows, it’s a great chance to catch up with old friends, meet new people and get a look at some of the greatest innovations in the holiday home industry. We can’t wait to attend more shows next year.
Over 30 years ago, I founded The Mayfield Group to help park home owners to enjoy their lodges and static caravans. The past few months have really put things into perspective and on a personal note, it has been great to see park homeowners enjoying their holiday homes once again.
Have a great summer and please continue to stay safe,
