Christmas: A time for festive fairs, nativity plays and Christmas carol services. But what happens when news of an unexpected election arrives, and a polling station has to pitch up in your school grounds?
There’s always Mobile Mini to rely on!
Around 46.8 million people voted in the 2017 general election, with a similar number expected to venture into the cold and make their way to schools, libraries and churches to cast their ballot this December.
In the midst of festive fun, it could be tricky to create space to host these voters, as well as everything else you have planned. That’s where Mobile Mini can help.
Available in a variety of sizes from 10 to 32 feet, we can provide site accommodation to appear as if by magic in your school grounds ready for the ballot to start.
Equipped with electricity to provide heating – a necessity as the chilly weather sets in – and kitchen space to warm up with a hot chocolate, site accommodation is the perfect place to house voters and presiding electoral officers. No need to worry about a return of the Beast from the East either – our containers are fully weatherproof.
A December election doesn’t exactly scream ‘Christmas cheer’ and housing your voters in site accommodation is a good way to keep both sets of school visitors separate. Parents full of festive spirit coming to see their little angels in action can go one way, while those coming to cast their Christmas vote will head the other.
Fairy lights, stars, a manger – nativity plays come with a lot of equipment, which would often be stored in classrooms ready for the big day. If voters are taking up all the room at the inn, pop your props in a Mobile Mini storage container where they’ll be safe, secure and out of the way of the ballot.
And once the festive period has come to a close? Your storage container can remain on site to store your festive props and the Christmas decoration collection which seems to grow year on year without taking up valuable learning or play space. A perfect solution without the need for planning permission!
Alternatively, we can take inspiration from the fairy godmother in your school pantomime and work our magic to make the container disappear without a trace.
