An electrical contractor came to the rescue recently to help out with a couple of projects for the TV show Love Your Garden.
The producers of the show initially needed help with a garden revamp for an elderly war veteran in Derbyshire.
NICEIC registered Dale Montague Electrical Ltd, based in Chesterfield, answered the call and were only too happy to go out and get the job finished. They made such a good impression they were called back to help out with another project in Nottingham, this time helping a couple coping with a disability.
Managing director Rebekah Tucker said: “We get a few emergency calls but this one was a little bit different. It took us a bit by surprise, but when we found out more about what was involved we were only too happy to help out.”
Love Your Garden sees a team of experts transform gardens for people in need and regularly attracts more than four million viewers.
The team from Dale Montague Electrical Ltd were asked to provide power, sockets and lights to a new outbuilding on both builds, while ensuring the work carried out by the entire team was done so safely and in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
Managing director and head electrician Dale Montague said: “The job itself was nothing too difficult, but obviously with the camera crew on site there did feel a bit of extra pressure to make sure it was all working ok. Thankfully it did. It was great for a small business like ours to be given this fantastic opportunity.”
“It was a really fun and interesting couple of projects to be part of. It was good to be able to give something back to help out.”
The new series of Love Your garden started on ITV on August 27th and runs for 10 episodes. NICEIC worked with the producers of the show to provide registered electrical contractors for each project across the UK.
