Covid-19

We confirm we have complied with the government guidelines for the management of risk of Covid-19. We have carried out Covid-19 risk assessments which have been shared with all staff. We have additional cleaning & handwashing procedures in place according to current guidelines. We have taken reasonable steps to maintain a safe distance in the workplace in line with current guidelines & where staff & guests cannot maintain social distance we have done everything we can to minimise the risk.
