“As a prestige sponsor of Fencex 2020, we see our responsibility to inform and educate a wider audience on how to keep their products safe and compliant,” said DHF’s commercial manager, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens. “Both the seminar and owners guide will highlight the dangers of not taking maintenance seriously. As we know, in the past, owners have been prosecuted because they have not maintained their product in a legal and appropriate manner. With the seminar free and open to all, we are once again placing education at the heart of our activity.

“Fencex is a natural platform to attract local authorities to come along to the seminar and see what their responsibilities are with regards to their product,” said Patricia. “We look forward to welcoming attendees to our seminar, and our stand.”
