The only towns in Rutland are Oakham, the county town, and Uppingham. At the centre of the county is the large artificial reservoir, Rutland Water, which is an important nature reserve serving as an overwintering site for wildfowl and a breeding site for ospreys.
The biggest employers in Rutland are in the public administration, education and health sectors, along with the two Ministry of Defence bases at Kendrew Barracks and St George's Barracks. There are also two public schools in the county, Oakham and Uppingham. The biggest industry in the county was the Ruddles Brewery until it closed in 1997.
Although Rutland is the smallest county in England, we still spend a fair amount of time there. Some of the items we deliver include:
Weddings are supposed to be a huge celebration of love between the happy couple. They are meant to be remembered for the right reasons. The bride’s beautiful dress, the elegant setting and the amazing food at the reception. The very last thing we want to happen is for a wedding to be ruined by dirty table linen, broken plates or a lack of glasses.
We live in an era where it’s common for people to want to get the most for the money they spend on their wedding. Our aim is to offer our customers a one-stop shop for everything they might need from crockery to linen, and cutlery to furniture. All of our prices are listed online, so that it’s possible to see exactly how much the wedding hire you need will cost without having to worry about getting quotes.
Linen is an important part of the theme for all kinds of events. We stock linen in a wide variety of colours, shapes and sizes to ensure we can do our best to help you.
We offer linen in a variety of different colours. It might be that you want a tablecloth so your tables match a particular aesthetic, or that you want to use table runners to just add a detail of colour to your table. We have the stock available so that whatever you choose, we can help.
Banqueting tables can be either rectangular, oval or circular with many different sizes. We offer linen to fit all standard sizes of dining tables, and our team can help advise on the size you need depending on how much “drape” you want surrounding the tables.
The cup, plate and bowl are among some of the items that we hire out most often at Midland Catering and Event Hire. Sure, they’re not the most exciting of the items we stock but they’re an important aspect for many kinds of events and occasions.
We stock crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match different styles of occasions and different themes. Just as importantly, we have a large quantity of crockery stock available to help ensure we can meet demands for even the biggest events and wedding. However, we do recommend that for bigger events that you order with plenty of notice to ensure it can be picked in time.
If you hate washing up, don’t worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means all you have to do after your event is to scrape the crockery clean of any food items, put them back into the packing crates that they were delivered in and we will do the rest back at the warehouse while you relax.
