Knights Group Newsletter May 2017
Managing Director’s Welcome
Welcome to this month’s newsletter. The football season has now come to an end and what a great season it has been. I have been completing my annual client season review meetings over the past and upcoming weeks and the general feedback has been positive. I would personally like to thank all of our staff that have been deployed over the past couple of extremely busy weekends.
During the close season the Group continues to be busy with upcoming events and festivals, with the HQ Group also being extremely busy organising the operational needs in preparation for the next football season already.
It is now public knowledge that Wembley National Stadium will host Tottenham Hotspur’s next season, this is great news for the Group and expands our operational event days massively. Jim has been work relentlessly behind the scenes with our recruitment, you may see many new faces out on the ground, so please ensure that you remain as professional as always and welcome our new staff members into the Group.
The summer season is a very busy time for the Group and as always I look forward to seeing you all out on the ground, make sure you continue to check PARiM for the latest available shifts.
JOSHUA v KLITSCHKO
Knights Group Security provided security for Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko fight at Wembley Stadium.
On Saturday 29th May, Knights Group Security provided event day staff for Wembley Stadium for the World Heavyweight Championship fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.
Staffing Manager, Emilea Lopez said “I was extremely proud of my staff during this shift. For some of our staff this was the first boxing fixture they have attended at any stadium and I’m glad they chose to experience this with us.
To all the staff that went out and completed a shift prior to this fixture, I would like to thank you. It’s times like these where all our staff really live up to the name – “Knights Group Gladiators”.

In the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack, make sure to follow the: run, hide, and tell procedure.
Run to a place of safety. This is a better option than to surrender or negotiate. If there is nowhere to go then…
Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off from vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can.
Tell the police by calling 999 when it is safe to do so.
Mobile phone applications such as citizenAID can be used to design a guide the public can use to react safely, pass effective messages to the emergency services, to prioritise the injured and to give life-saving first aid.
