We are facing unprecedented times and as such we are only able to make plans for a few days at a time. As the situation evolves regarding the spread of COVID-19 and we receive government advice we are reacting and adapting accordingly. So with this in mind we wish to clarify our immediate plans.
We are currently following government advice on hygiene for companies that remain in operation. Employees have been informed of the importance of social distancing and increasing hygiene practices and enhanced cleaning within our offices. We trust that any customers and visitors to our offices, trade counter and warehouses, will adhere to this, making use of the numerous hand sanitisers available upon entry. All staff are aware of the importance of self-isolating for the recommended time periods if they display symptoms associated with COVID-19 or have been in contact with anyone who also shows symptoms.
In regard to our business, at this point in time we intend to remain fully operational. Collections and deliveries of orders placed between now and Friday 27th March (the date of our year end stock take) will continue. We intend to close for the full Easter week, commencing 13th April until 17th April inclusive. Our supply chain is mostly UK based and, so far, factories remain open but, obviously this can change on a daily basis and we will keep you updated on this.
We trust you appreciate our plans are made with the best intentions for our staff, company and customer base going forward.
