Scomadi at BOB North
Scomadi had an enjoyable weekend at the first Best of Britannia Event to be held outside of London. The build-up started with the VIP Launch at Preston Railway Station prior to the event, where two of our scooters were on display for two days to the many commuters who pass through the station on a daily basis.
The main event took place in the historic Old Post Office building in the centre of Preston. The scooters on display at the event attracted a great deal of attention from both the media and the general public. Scomadi featured in the report about the event on BBC North West News with reporter Mark Edwardson starting his piece sitting on one of our hand built scooters and then interviewing Frank Sanderson about our story. During the course of the weekend renowned fashion designer Wayne Hemingway presented local boxers Scott Fitzgerald and Lisa Whiteside who are both currently in training with the GB Boxing Team with their sponsored Scomadi Scooters.
Many people visited our stand on Saturday and Sunday as a result of the TV coverage that we received with many telling us that they just had to come and see the scooters in the flesh and expressing their admiration for the scooters on display. All in all a successful weekend which offered us a fantastic opportunity to spread the Scomadi Story to a whole new audience!
