Welcome to the Autumn edition of The Edit – our newsletter for customers and staff
It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were welcoming lighter evenings, now the clocks have gone back again and nights are drawing in but we’ve had a busy time here at Space Station and we have lots of news to share with you!
From charity sky dives to sponsored spray tans…
As a new corporate sponsor for Variety the Children’s Charity, we have been busy fundraising over the last few months in a bid to raise £20,000, to sponsor a Sunshine Coach.
From sponsored walks, ten-pin bowling, cake sales and bake offs to sky dives and sponsored spray tans we really have organised a variety of activities!
We don’t know who was braver – our HR Manager Sarah and Store Manager Kev for jumping out of a plane to Sky Dive or our CEO Kevin for stripping down to his underwear and having a sponsored spray tan!
So far, we’ve raised a total of £6,336 which is over a quarter of our target.
Look out for more fundraising in the New Year!
You’ve rated us as ‘Excellent’ on Trust Pilot and it’s your reviews that help others know what to expect from us when they’re looking for self-storage. Plus, for every review received we donate £5 to Variety, the Children’s Charity, so far this year we have donated £675.00! Thank you to all of you for taking the time to write a review of your experience, if you haven’t done so already and would like to share your comments just head over to Trust Pilot.
Clutter free for Christmas!
With Christmas just around the corner it’s a good time to think about having a clear out. Whether you need space for friends and relatives to come and stay or you need to make room for all the new toys that you know will be soon arriving – putting things into short term storage is a simple solution.
As well as larger sized units we also offer smaller sized ‘lockers’– great for hiding all those presents in the run up to the big day!
Plus we can even take delivery of all your Christmas parcels!
Don’t tell anyone but even Santa has us on standby at this time of year in case his storage at the North Pole reaches its capacity!
For our store opening hours over the Christmas period please see our website.
Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

We’re always working on maintaining the high standards at our stores. New signs have recently been put up at our Slough store to co-inside with our re-brand and it’s looking really smart!

That’s why if you choose to store with us we will move your goods into your storage unit free of charge – yes that’s right we won’t charge you a penny!
A fully insured, professional and seamless service taking care of your valuables whilst moving and storing. Just give us a call on 0800 404 6969 – or ask in store for more details.
We often share Space Station owner Alastair’s rally adventures, as a former Formula One team manager he still enjoys being in the front seat!
But did you know Alastair’s mother Dorothy has travelled with Alastair on a number of rallies over the last few years and this year Dorothy was awarded a Guinness World Record title as the Oldest Active Rally Navigator!
Here she is handling the book and the map – without reading glasses!
…and now our staff news…
Firstly, it’s wedding news as customer service advisor Kristina from our Slough store tied the knot in July! Here she is with her husband Martin looking fantastic on their big day!
Kings Heath star as store of the month!
In the last newsletter we told you about our new Superstars scheme and our stores have since been busy accruing ‘stars’ – awarded for exceptional performance each month. The stars equal pounds which can be spent by the store on whatever they wish. Kings Heath have been awarded ‘store of the month’ for 7 consecutive months and the team have been enjoying lunches and shopping with their money! Well done Kings Heath!
Other celebrations include staff service anniversaries; celebrating five years at Space Station are both Dean at our Slough store and Dwayne from our West London region – congratulations to both!
Plus, Audra our Accounts Manager celebrates an incredible 25 years with Space Station this month, a fantastic achievement so huge congratulations to her as well!
New recruit is a super star!
We have recently welcomed new recruits to the company, Niall and Gareth have joined our North London team and Louis has joined our team in Kings Heath. Louis has already been awarded as a Super Star for September – what a great start to his career with Space Station, well done Louis!
