Aerial Force in Wimbledon
Aerial Force love to work in some of the UK’s most famous regions and are proud to present our connection with the residents of Wimbledon! Wimbledon is an area of England that evokes happy memories such as strawberries and cream on a hot summer’s afternoon. It hosts one of the four major tennis tournaments that take place in the world, and is situated near to the country’s capital – just 7 miles (approximately) Southwest of London’s city centre. For residents who are unable to attend one of the greatest tennis tournaments on our planet (if not the greatest), it is imperative that they are able to follow it on their televisions. Aerial Force ensure that the people of Wimbledon are able to do just that, by installing, repairing and maintaining aerials and satellites around the region.
We are much more than aerial and satellite servicers, however. Before we attend places like Wimbledon, we like to immerse ourselves in the history and past traditions of the area. In so doing, we are able to offer a better customer experience – something that we are passionate about creating. Research always brings up a plethora of interesting information, and these are added to by the stories we enjoy hearing when we attend the homes around Wimbledon.
Wimbledon’s population was just over 68,000 in 2011, and has become a popular place for people to live. However, the number of people who visit the region over the tennis tournament is extortionate, so Wimbledon must ensure that it has a range of attractions and services for visitors to use and enjoy.
Wimbledon – now known as a district – has been inhabited since the iron age. When it was a village, Wimbledon was a stable rural population which helped it to develop. This was aided by the nobility and wealthy merchants that resided in the village
As times, transport and technologies changed, Wimbledon followed suit and a railway was opened by the London and South Western Railway in 1838 towards the South east of the village. As with many districts and areas around the UK, Wimbledon changed dramatically in the second of the 19th century, and the population went from being under 2700 in 151, to have a 60% increase during each decade until about 1901! This extraordinary rise in population aided the commercial and civic development of the district significantly.
The rise in population had to mean changes to how Wimbledon was structured within the UK economy, and in 1894, the village became a small town having an elected council which made the area become known as ‘Wimbledon Urban District.’ As times progressed, buildings within Wimbledon were changed and new, modern structures arose such as a new town hall, made from red bricks and Portland stone.
What has undoubtedly helped place Wimbledon on the map, however, is the tennis championships that began in 1877. This was when the first lawn tennis championship was held in the (then) village, though the first sport to be played in the area was croquet! Wimbledon had to change the sport due to contemporary tastes, and Wimbledon have never looked back!
