IMPORTANT CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT….
LONG READ BUT PLEASE READ IT ALL x
It is with the utmost regret we must inform you that our doors will close today.
Without clear and precise leadership from those that are in positions of high office we are left unable to be of service to you.
We have been put in the totally uncomfortable position whereby, whilst social distancing is being vigorously recommended (and for very good reason) no direct instruction is being given to those in the hospitality sector.
It’s like being told not to drink milk but failing to tell the milkman not to deliver, it’s like being told not to take a taxi but taxis are sitting idle on the street, it’s like being told not to get a haircut but the hairdresser/barber is still open and the lights are on.
We absolutely adore being of service to you, for now however we must withdraw.
We ARE NOT politicians or scientists and we have no idea what happens next.
We ARE duty bound to keep you and our wonderful staff as safe as possible.
We are being told to stand behind our employees whilst not being given any idea of how we can do that given the advice to not visit us.
We will not stand behind anyone.
We will stand in front of them and do our best to shield and protect them however we can.
So our first step is to stand in front of you, our customers, and shield you by distancing us all for a while.
This naturally makes us very sad.
The very next step will be to stand in front of our employees and do our best to protect them.
To be honest we have no idea how long we will be able to do this given the lack of clarity and support that has been displayed by government to date.
TILL WE MEET AGAIN …
STAY SAFE… STAY WELL…
LET’S VISUALISE SHARING COMPANY TOGETHER AGAIN WHEN WE ALL GET PAST THIS… WHICH WE WILL…
Signing off with a song for now…
Thank you so much for your support understanding
We are going to miss you x
