I can’t believe it’s time for another newsletter – where has the last 3 months gone?! Here at Able Canopies we have been extremely busy installing canopies, shelters and shade sails at schools, nurseries, academies, hospice’s and commercial organisations across England and Wales.
The summer holidays have been jam packed with installations that have kept our fitting teams extremely busy. We have installed two large span canopies this summer, one was a Double Grange Free Standing Canopy that we installed at RSA Academy in the West Midlands and the other was a Hamilton canopy that we installed at White Spire School in Buckinghamshire, you can read more about this installation in the Big is Beautiful news story below.
Please click the links below to read our top stories from the last 3 months including funding sources for a new canopy or shelter and the launch of our new timber shelters!
