March 2013 Meeting

Andover Women in Business Club held their 5th March meeting at the Copper Kettle, Andover, where our Speakers were Liz Dawson and Sue Craig-Lowdon from Choices Hire Services – Event, Tableware and Catering Hire.

Sue and Liz were fantastic that evening – entertaining us with a Quiz, which actually told us some amazing things about Choices Hire Services. AWIBC members were very impressed with the value for money that Choices Hire Service offer, and everyone’s ears pricked up when we realised that you can return all the dirty crockery, dinner services etc, from your event, and they will do all the washing up for a very tiny, extra fee! How wonderful is that!

As well as being willing to hire anyone anything from a single teaspoon to a Marquee, the Choices Hire Services Units at Eastover Farm, SP11 7BT are a veritable Aladdin’s Cave.

I popped over to their recent Open Day, and was surprised by the thousands, and thousands of items they hold for hire and sale. All kept beautifully clean, and well organised, in an immaculate environment.

In their words “From a single item hire to arranging a fully managed event with security, valet, serving and licensed bar staff and everything in between we can help! In addition to our standard high quality services we can source bespoke items to make your event unique and extra special for the guests for example ice sculptures, exotic flower arrangements and artists to name but a few. For a stress free event we’ll manage and organise for as little or as much as you want. Our friendly staff will help you throughout the planning phase to ensure the event meets your expectations.”

I rather liked the giant garden ‘Jenga’ and the ‘Stocks’ that were on display, and the elegant dinner services. Lots of themes are available, basically anything, for any event that you could possibly desire.

Choices Hire Services also have longstanding and reliable links to other businesses, to ensure you can get every single service you need for your event. I would recommend that you go, for a look, yourselves.
