We remain Open! The Global Pandemic of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) has hit many businesses over the last year and we have had to adapt to the new ‘normal’. With the government announcing another full lock down on Monday 4th January 2021, coming into effect immediately we have once again had to adapt our business. As a […]
Merry Christmas from CES! Well how did that happen? Just like that we’ve glided (or maybe that should be clattered, crashed or collided…we are in the year of the coronavirus after all) into December. 2020 has certainly been a turbulent year that not one of us could have predicted.

We shall be closing our doors for the August Bank holiday Monday. This means we will close at 4.30pm on Friday 28th August 2020 and reopen at 8.00am on Tuesday 1st September. I know, we can hardly believe that we’re saying September either!
This past weekend has been a key moment in many businesses reopening their doors. However, CES Hire have remained open throughout the lockdown. Of course they are a key part of the essential construction industry. As a small local business which has been established 37 years, the Covid-19 pandemic would surely have a massive impact on this plastering and rendering equipment hire company?
Ever gone through the pain-staking task of painting all the balustrades and handrail of your staircase? Double the ‘pain-staking’ factor when you live in a town house, like me! Yes, that’s right my other half and I painted all 90 staircase spindles by hand! 90! We must be mad! I have to add, this was pre-children so we had time for these mad DIY projects. Now it would not be so easy. We’d end up with a paint-splattered toddler looking like some contemporary Damien Hirst masterpiece and two frazzled parents. So, what would I do differently? I’d most certainly turn to the QTech HVLP Paint Sprayer. With less time and more mucky toddler finger prints to cover, the HVLP is definitely the answer. It had me hooked at ‘spraying a door in two minutes!’
Giving, without all the ‘stuff’ In a world of ‘stuff’ bursting out of every cupboard and drawer, what can we give this Christmas? You’ll know from our last blog that we are endeavouring to have a more sustainable Christmas and we certainly didn’t want to be the bearers of more plastic, more gifts to squirrel […]
I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas Every year the press gives us those all-important odds of a white Christmas but this year at CES we’re hoping for a Green Christmas. I’m sure by know you all know about our eco-drive this year and our efforts were celebrated with our place as a finalist in the […]
