Today, as part of their visit to Leicester, Prince William and Kate will be visiting the University of Leicester.
They will meet with University’s Centenary scholars and hear about some of the education programmes that Leicester City Football Club have helped to support, including a £1m donation by Mr Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha which is helping to fund medical research and training.
Lowe Electrical were asked to carry out lighting of the 50ft tree in the University’s grounds in readiness for the Royal visit.
On Thursday 8th November, children at St Paul’s CE Primary School, Woodhouse Eaves enjoyed a day full of fun and fitness as they raised money for Loros Hospice.
Lowe Electrical sponsored Lily who spent the day with her class mates in a number of movement activities which are designed to help with good motor development skills.
Attention, listening, balance, co-ordination, muscle tone and visual motor skills are key indicators of ‘learning readiness’ at school, and the “FINS” (Fitness in Schools) coaches worked with the children throughout the day.
A big well done to Lily who has raised over £100.00 for the Loros Hospice Charity… great work!
On Remembrance Sunday 11th November, Leicester paid its own tributes to the Great War and the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice.
The Arch of Remembrance was the backdrop to the city’s annual service and Lowe Electrical is proud to have been involved in the lighting of our City Cenotaph, Clock Tower and Gate House in Victoria Park.
The LED lighting installation is a permanent fixture and will allow any colour to be projected onto the building facades for future celebrations and events.
Lowe Electrical has provided a Work Experience and Apprenticeship Programme for many years, and we are proud of the fact that many of our highly skilled electricians started their training with us as young Apprentices. Today they are sharing their knowledge and experience with Leicester’s students on a variety of projects across the City.
Recently our Engineers have been working at Aylestone Leisure Centre for our Client Leicester City Council and one student from Leicester College has gained some valuable work experience .
By working closely with the Colleges and being able to offer the experience of working at local sites, we can source the talent required of highly skilled electricians for the future of Leicester.
Josh, pictured above, following two weeks Work Experience has now been offered an Apprenticeship with Lowe Electrical… well done Josh!
