In the current situation we appreciate the need for safety and the minimisation of potential infection. We also support the freedom of the individual to make personal decisions, and the need to keep the economy running.
We have therefore decided, at least for now, that we will be remaining open for custom. We are providing hand washing facilities, tissues and bins to help those who choose to visit remain safe, and have exhaustive cleanliness procedures in place for all our staff.
So, while we urge everybody to heed government and medical warnings, we will continue to offer our services to those who want to use them whilst we are allowed to do so.
