Kingdom helps shopping centre client celebrate 40th anniversary

Harpur Centre 40Kingdom was very pleased recently to play a key role in helping one of their clients to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

Kingdom has been providing cleaning services to The Harpur Centre, Bedford’s premier shopping centre, for the past five years, and in addition was awarded the contract to provide security to the shopping centre in 2015.

The Harpur Centre is a popular shopping mall housed within a Grade 2 listed building, conveniently located in the heart of Bedford’s city centre. It is home to over 30 well-known shops across two floors and is open seven days a week.

There was lots of fun and activities within the shopping centre and the three day event proved to be a huge success, with all the cleaning and security team going above and beyond the call of duty. Commenting on the work of his team, Kingdom’s site manager at the Harpur Centre, Michael (Mick) Reynolds, said:

“Over the last few days both my Security and Cleaning teams have excelled themselves in the time and effort they have put in to ensure that the Harpur Centre’s 40th birthday was celebrated in a happy, clean and secure way by all the members of the public, both young and not so young, over a three day period.

“They not only carried out their duties but also gave up their days off to assist in the setting up, supervising of contractors and clearing away of equipment to ensure enjoyment by all who attended the centre, showing great professionalism by carrying out any task asked of them.”

Kingdom’s client, the Deputy Centre Manager, added: “We are very impressed with how both the Security and Cleaning teams, under the lead of your Site Manager, Mick, went above and beyond over the three day period and were ambassadors of the highest calibre for not only the Harpur Centre, but also Kingdom as well.

“We had an extra obstacle thrown at us on Saturday, when there was a planned animal rights protest taking place in Bedford. This did not affect the Centre, but all personnel stepped up to ensure that there were no issues affecting the celebrations. A big well done and thanks needs to be passed onto the teams.”

Members of the team at the Harpur Centre have been nominated to receive commendations from Kingdom in recognition of their excellent work.

Kingdom provides a continual manned security presence in the shopping mall and car park as well as constant CCTV coverage across the entire site. They also provide cleaning services to the shopping centre seven days a week, which includes keeping the car park, service corridors and shopping mall clean. Kingdom also provides periodic cleaning services to the centre.
