Great British Office Bake Off: Week 1

Well, last week our MD decided to set us office boffins a challenge after a flood of apples landed in his lap! Why not mimic one of the latest trends and do a Style-Arrival Great Office Bake Off! Week 1 was an ingredient challenge of… you guessed it, apples! Our only other stipulation this week was that the end product had to be a sweet dish.

We had 3 scrummy entries this week: Toffee Apple Cake, Apple Flan and Caramelised Apple Upside Down Cake! What would you have voted for?

It was a tough decision, but we had a guest judge this week that helped the final voting! In first place came the Upside Down Cake, which went down a storm with its hint of cinnamon and lovely light texture.

The winner is now exempt from the next Bake Off, with this week’s judge taking her baking place, and has chosen pumpkin as the key ingredient and has left it open to each bakers choosing of sweet or savoury! We’re also open to outside suggestions so send any ideas you have for ingredients or technical challenges!

Keep an eye out for the next instalment of the Great Office Bake Off!

Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University students return to the city!

Mayhem packed the Brayford area this morning as students seemed to swarm from all directions. One of our little boffins, just returning from being poorly, nearly got carried away by the tidal wave of bodies heading towards Lincoln’s University campus.

Will Lincoln Monopoly be in your Christmas stocking this year?

The classic game with a local twist is on the tip of most people’s tongues as Monopoly has decided on a Lincoln Edition! With Old Kent Road having been revealed as Lincoln YMCA, the other locations are being held secret until the board is released, which is expected to be next month. We can only wait to see if one of the player pieces is a Style-Arrival vehicle!

As much as we love a game of chance it’s not something you’ll find when booking with us! All of our vehicles arrive to collect you sparkling after an immaculate valet, and in plenty of time to get you on your way to your destination. All of our drivers come smartly presented, with years of experience and an enhanced CRB check, and that’s just as standard! High quality, reliability and top notch customer service are just a few of the reasons you should book with us. See what our customers have to say on our FreeIndex profile or at www.style-arrival.co.uk

(Please note: we do not accept Monopoly money, Lincoln or otherwise, in exchange for transport. Erm, sorry about that…)

Commuters Suffer During Train Cancellations

The end of last month saw yet more problems for commuters and travellers as delays and bus replacements were flourishing after a derailment near Nottingham. Passengers faced a delay of up to an hour while bus replacements were called in to take over the runs unable to operate due to the train line remaining unusable. As things currently stand, the disruption to services is expected to last until at least this Thursday, if not beyond. Until repairs are completed train users can expect their journey to be increased by up to 1 hour with the current bus replacements.

If you’re one of the many suffering during this period then why not give Style-Arrival a try? Our office team keep an eye on traffic reports so that drivers can be notified of the best route to keep you as close to your schedule as possible. Plus, your journeys are always planned to allow for a little traffic (even more so when at rush hour), and in the case of longer journeys, some rest stops. These are added with your own comfort and schedule in mind, and that’s what puts a cut above the rest, we truly care about our customers! We take the time to get to know you so we understand your needs and can design the perfect package for you and your journey.

Whether you’re planning a simple journey or the most extravagant wedding then let Style-Arrival take care of the important details, and you can relax knowing you’re in good hands. Contact one of our dedicated team today who will be more than happy to help arrange the ideal package for you!

Hirebikes come to Lincoln City!

Those local to Lincoln may have noticed the bike points springing up at various points across the city over the past month. These are now loaded with bikes and ready to go! In order to use the bikes, you need to become a member and then pay per hire. The prices of the bikes are highly competitive to those of London bike hire when it comes to longer journeys, capping at just £4 for a full day, whereas London prices can be as high as £50! Here at Style-Arrival, our philosophy is to provide London quality of service across Lincolnshire at reasonable prices!

Our quality extends across all of our services, from taxis right through to full executive service and even wedding transport! We are also conscious of trying to say green, so we have a range of vehicles of various sizes from 4 to 12 seaters. Meaning we will never suggest a vehicle that goes beyond your needs, yet bigger parties can save money with one larger vehicle instead of multiple vehicles, where extra drivers and fuel costs would be a higher cost to you. So if you’re looking for something to take you further afield than a bike can, or your group is too big to fit on a pushbike, let us provide your transport to ensure a stress free, enjoyable journey.

The bank holiday may be over but the summer is still hanging on and that means our Summer Sale is continuing! Who knows when it will end so get your enquiries in now to make sure you don’t miss out! Contact our team today to see what we can arrange for you. Our Opportunity Knocks newsletter is also heading out again this week, with a range of upcoming events in your area! Remember to get access to this monthly newsletter you need to subscribe, it’s as easy as sending an email to info@style-arrival.co.uk! So go on, who knows what we’ll find for you…

He is currently looking for sponsors, remember every little helps, so if you’re feeling generous then give us a call today on 01522 821 632 to arrange a donation! For further information please email info@style-arrival.co.uk or check our facebook page for more details!

Remember to pop along to the First Timers Pre-School Nursery on the day to show your support and make those last minute sponsorships, we’ll be there cheering him and all the other participants on! The ride starts at 10am and there will be food and drinks provided, with all proceeds going to the Stainthorp family and their chosen charities.

On behalf of myself and the rest of the Style-Arrival team, good luck to everyone taking part!

Luxury Additions to Airlines for Premium Passengers

With all the negativity surrounding rail fare increases and passengers being given “less room than cattle”, I’ve chosen to look at something a little more positive this week. Looking back to one of our favourite subjects for this week’s topic; holidays. Sun, pool, cocktails, relaxation… Oops, got a little distracted there, sorry! While most of us settle for the best bargain we can find, even more temptations of the higher class tickets are being implemented to draw us in. Personally, it’s working and I’m looking into taking a credit card out just to book a luxury long haul flight, and I don’t even like flying! The thought of Michelin-starred menus, specially blended tea, hotel inspired blankets and spa treatments have got my toes tapping and my fingers itching to click book! I haven’t even let the Fabergé jewels enter my mind for fear of what I’ll do.

Snapping back to reality, bargain last minute flights to somewhere I’ve barely even heard of are what my holiday plans consist of, and that’s not even going to be this year. For those of you still enjoying that pre-holiday excitement for the next few months, or even that special Christmas or New Year excursion, consider Style-Arrival to take care of getting you to your airport or even the coast for those lucky enough to be going on a cruise (if only…). Whatever your budget or group size we can tailor packages to suit you, with everything from a high quality taxi through to full executive service, proving that you don’t need the job title to get the treatment!

We see you right through to departure, with the team keeping an eye on flight information and traffic situations to ensure the whole transition is as smooth as possible. Whatever your travel plans, our dedicated team are more than happy to arrange a package that’s perfect for you! Check out our testimonials to see just what our customers thing of the service the received with us! Don’t delay, contact us today!

Train Prices Set To Skyrocket!

Commuters are understandably furious as rail fares are set to rocket yet again beyond the expected increase in wages, in the New Year. This has been an ongoing issue and source of complaints for years from travellers across the country, especially when the quality of service doesn’t seem to be improving. In my experience, rush hour trains are overcrowded, often delayed and generally not a very pleasant experience. Complaints via social networks about train services are also increasing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they continue to grow with this latest news.

With prices growing it is understandable that commuters are looking for alternate sources of transport to get to work. This is where Style-Arrival can help! Whether you’re looking for a complete alternative to rail transfers, or just a way to get to the station then we can arrange something for you. When travelling in groups, our rates become comparable to those of rail fares, with a lot more comfort, privacy and a range of vehicles to choose from! You can’t say better than that!

Our summer sale is still continuing, as is the sunshine, so make sure you don’t miss out, as it could end at any time! We have a dedicated team in the office that are always happy to help and tailor something specifically to your needs, so why not contact us today or use our online booking form to submit an enquiry! Remember our sale applies to all of our services so why not use it to make the most of the sun, and keep an eye out for our latest Opportunity Knocks, coming soon…
