I felt I should write to let you know that your staff did an absolutely wonderful job in getting our marquees up, and thereafter working so hard to see us safely through storm Ali, which we encountered prior to our weekend festival of racing. When I saw the destruction to temporary facilities elsewhere in Scotland caused by the storm, it showed me how difficult it must have been for your staff.
They also helped us get some facilities strapped down, and for that I am grateful.
In so far as the racing over the weekend is concerned we had a terrific festival, with the venue looking fantastic, and presented to a high standard.
Please accept my thanks and pass on my thanks and gratitude to all the staff involved.
202On behalf of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation, I would like to express my sincere thanks for your very kind donation of a marquee for Dr Danny McGuigan’s Garden Party, held at his house on Saturday. Just as the first speech started, the rain started and there were even hailstones so the marquee was very much appreciated! As you very kindly donated the marquee, it meant that all the money which was raised on the day could go directly towards the work of the charity. We are very grateful for your generosity.
The marquee did a fabulous job for the event and the afternoon was a huge success. We had a packed house with some wonderful entertainment from the Soul Nation Choir as well as presentations from Duke of Edinburgh award winners and their mentors. The auction generated a very impressive amount of money and we will soon know the extent of the individual pledges for the foundation.
At my request, Mr John May, Secretary General of the Duke of Edinburgh International award foundation mentioned the gift of the marquee from Purvis Marquees in his opening address to the garden party. That was in addition to having your cards and brochures available.
It is difficult to find the words to fully express my appreciation for what you did. It provided an extraordinary backdrop, an elegant space and a solid foundation for our event. One of these mornings when I’m flying out to London I’ll drop in to express my thanks personally.
If there’s anything I can ever do to help your organisation or you personally, please let me know.
Our planning is already well underway for 2017 and we very much hope to be working with you again.
We hope to work with you once again in the near future, and all the best.
Again thank you so very much for your help.
I have just about recovered from my first big event 😊 Incidentally, so has our grass – it’s as if the event never happened!
It all went tremendously well in the end, weather or no weather! We wanted a marquee that would make an impression and that is certainly what we got. I can’t thank you enough for your patience as the requirements changed again and again, and for going above and beyond to meet them. The event wouldn’t have been the success it was without you and your team.
The marquees and pagodas all added to the festival atmosphere over the weekend, and the whole place looked great.
I truly appreciate the manner in which your staff work alongside our own staff and other subcontractors in the run-up to the event, and the manner in which they manage to find solutions to the small problems which show themselves.
Please pass on my thanks to all involved.
I am writing to you, as Secretary of The Ayrshire Agricultural Association, to pass on our deepest thanks for the quality of service Purvis Marquees provides before, during and after our event.
We sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the way you conduct business. You have become a very important part of the team; your work is professional and staff friendly and polite.
We have recommended your company to others because of our satisfaction with your services.
We look forward to doing business with you for many years to come.
Sincere thanks, once again for all your help.
It was good working with you and your team again this year, please pass on my thanks for being solution-driven, proactive, flexible and safe as ever!
People have been ringing my parents asking who did the marquee so hopefully Purvis will get some new business coming through!
We remain very grateful to you for the remarkable job you and your team delivered in the face of appalling weather conditions in erecting us such a splendid marquee at Edinburgh airport for the Pope’s arrival. It was first rate, exactly what was required and it was a real pleasure to work with you on this historic project.
Many thanks to all involved.
If you are thinking about hiring a marquee for a party – look no further!
We just had a great party using the pagoda style marquees. Ideal. Thank you to all the staff who helped us. From the planning side to the team who erected and just took away the tents – you all did a marvelous flawless job. Everything was just perfect. Thank you!
Just a note to say Thank You for your services over the last week. We had the most fantastic day on Saturday and the Marquee provided the perfect setting for the wedding. It helped to create a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere for what turned out to be quite a sociable day. ( Maybe the free bar helped that too).
I just wish you could have seen the finished product with all of Emily’s unbelievable flower arrangements and other “soft” touches.
Thank you again.
Derek and Emily
The team were great, and I was happy you guys just got on with it.
How far do you supply marquees? I am keen to use you again for future events.
None of the venues in the city could cope with the requirement of seating all guests and allow plenty of room for entertainment and dancing.
The client really liked Hopetoun House but even utilising all the areas of the building there was insufficient space for the catering, entertainment and staff.
At this point, we started considering the possibility of using a marquee and we made contact with Purvis. They made our end client feel very confident that they were the right choice of supplier to go with for this large and prestigious event.
From the first phone call to check their availability and throughout all meetings, they had an extremely friendly, professional & efficient way of dealing with this quite challenging job. Purvis was extremely accommodating in trying to help with all requirements which makes our job in the DMC much easier.
We were given a time frame for how long the set up would be, and this deadline was held with no delays. The end product and finishing touches were stunning.
It is safe to say that the group had a fantastic evening and all expectations were met both by Cashel Travel and our end client.
We are extremely fortunate to work with such brilliant and reliable suppliers such as both Purvis Marquee and Hopetoun House. May we have many more large events together in the future!
and John. This that were large problems to me were turned into solutions by a chat with you guys. Sadly I am not involved in an event this year but had I been you would have got my first phone call and I would have looked forward to working with you guys again. From the first phone call to the last man off-site a company that does what they say on the tin.
Many blessings to you all and if I am needing more Marquees I still have your number.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Purvis Marquees.
The success of the project was down to all involved but it is not to be underestimated how big a part the marquee and ancillary services played in the success of the whole project.
I would just like to send a quick email to thank you and the team for your assistance this year. As always, the lads on site have been great, very helpful and always working to my tight demands! The guys are still working very hard to clear the site on schedule and I really appreciate it.
Many thanks and I hope we can work together next year.
