We are Open!
The UK is currently trying to move slowly and safely out of lockdown.
In March the UK Government introduced a Job Retention Scheme which allows companies to “furlough” staff who are not working. The Government then covers 80% of their wages (up to a limit).
Since March 25th we have operated with a skeleton staff and currently still have over half of our workforce furloughed.
In the last few weeks we have tried to gradually increase our staff numbers whilst introducing safe social distancing measures.
This week we have turned a limited number of our phone lines back on and have five of the sales team in the offices.
We will attempt to ship all orders on the day we receive them but please bear with us should there be a slight delay as we are trying to balance customer demand with safe working and fewer staff.
We hope, wherever in the world you are, that you and your loved ones are safe and well and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
In the meantime thank you for your loyalty and patience.
Ben and Lucy Handford
