We are always pleased to announce that our Events Team are working at another major sporting event; but, as you can imagine, we are particularly delighted to be making this announcement. Our Events Team will be working again at the AIG Woman’s British Open at Royal Troon.
It’s been too long since we were able to bring you news about any event, so the team at Spectrum are particularly excited to be working with the R&A again at Royal Troon to provide a full range of services during the event which runs from the 20th -23rd August.
Of course, the event will take place without spectators, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have lots to do during the practice days and the competition. In fact, because of COVID-19, we probably have more than ever to provide.
We will be undertaking deep cleans of the clubhouse and all structures ensuring the whole venue is adequately sanitised for players, caddies, officials, press and technicians. These services will be delivered in addition to our standard events services such as the provision of consumables, sanitary and hygiene, clinical waste services, waste segregation and free sanitary products.
The return of large-scale events and top-level golf tournaments is most welcome; speaking about the forthcoming event, Spectrum’s Operations Director, Rebecca Speirs said, “We are delighted to be mobilising our Events Team again. They have been busy delivering specialist cleaning services to many of our commercial clients, but they are all excited to be back working with the R&A at a major golf event.
“We have been working closely with the R&A to ensure all the necessary measures are taken to provide a safe and hygienic environment for everyone.”
Fiona Hyslop, Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Fair Work and Culture, said, “Scotland is the home of golf, and so it is fitting that we are on course to host golf’s first Major of 2020, the AIG Women’s British Open. This is only possible thanks to the dedication of The R&A in working with the Scottish Government and other partners to develop comprehensive plans to allow for an event of this stature to take place, set against the most challenging of circumstances.”
We wish all of the competitors all the very best in the first major to be hosted in the UK this year; we are proud to be involved and we will be watching with interest as competitive golf resumes in Scotland.
