Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening [23rd March] we have been seeking further clarification from the UK Government about the status of businesses like ours, and if necessary, how we could operate within the Government guidelines.
Following clarification from the Government yesterday evening [25rd March], in conjunction with our industry bodies, we have made the decision to remain open, but offering a delivery service only.
We are introducing further social distancing and hygiene measures to protect our colleagues and customers:
This is not a decision that is easy or has been taken lightly. While the safety of everyone is our number one priority, it is also critical that we support our customers as well as helping self-employed customers to stay in business, and secure the livelihoods of our colleagues we employ.
All of the changes we are making are designed to limit the risk to our colleagues’ and customers’ health and wellbeing.
Our colleagues will be on hand at the end of the phone to arrange delivery enable you to continue to run your business and provide the important services to help support the country.
Thank you for your support and understanding through these difficult and uncertain times.
