It’s the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, GOMCS exhibition 2020 on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th February. We are really pleased to have been invited again and are happy to promote this wonderful event.
Promoting the GOMCS Exhibition
The 2020 Exhibition is being held at The Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwick CV8 2LD. Sponsored by Rodtech UK, the event runs 10 am – 4.30 pm on Friday and 9.30 am – 3 pm on Saturday. It is free entry, free parking and everyone is welcome to this great trade event.
There is, as always, a lot to see and do. Trade stands covering all aspects of chimney sweeping and training, the Best Van and door prize competitions, conference talks culminating in the Saturday evening Gala Dinner, charity raffle and so much more.
Thatch Advice Centre and GOMCS
We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone again, catching up on news and also keeping everyone up to date on thatch and chimney related issues. Of course, Thatch Fire Safety will be an important part of our event message but we also will be promoting the importance of working together.
We can’t leave it to the ‘powers that be’ to fill in the gaps in the pavement; we have to do it ourselves, pushing from the bottom up. Communication (independent of any formal demands from authority) succeeds well because it is driven by a common aim, knowledge and understanding of issues, and a passion. We know that our relationship with chimney sweeps helps our thatch property owners.
There are many ways that chimney sweeps can help thatched property owners, such as satisfying insurance requirements, chimney maintenance advice and sharing thatch fire safety recommendations amongst others. Showing that a chimney sweep appreciates their involvement in reducing thatch fires gives the homeowner confidence that they are not only ticking an insurance box but getting a certificate from someone who understands.
The GOMCS Exhibition 2020 gives us the opportunity to remind everyone about how working together and sharing information and expertise benefits everyone, their clients and their trades. There are still chimney related issues which we find mutually frustrating but, sharing the knowledge of how to deal with those issues until they are resolved, is helpful to everyone. The brilliant poem received sent to us by one of our subscribers excellently described some chimney and thatch related problems which are often encountered! It was so great we shared it as an article earlier this month and it is definitely worth a read.
