Covid-19, Our current situation

As many will be aware, we are in the midst of a pandemic. Restrictions on movement, socialising, school closures, how we interact etc are all in place and with good reasons too. It's a testing time for all people whatever line of work you are in, employed or self employed. So I thought I would give a quick update to how we are operating now as a business.

Due to the school closures and subsequent Government Guidelines, I have no other option to but to suspend trading for the foreseeable future. As most my work is domestic based I do not feel I can guarantee the safety of my customers and my own immediate family by continuing to work through this. In addition paint suppliers have also taken steps to cease trading through this period of restrictive movement, so accessing any materials is virtually impossible.

This isn't a decision taking lightly, I weighed up whether the practicalities of using social distancing or working in empty homes would be sufficient in continuing but the deciding factor was my own family needed to prioritised. So as of Monday 23rd March, the business is temporarily suspending work until various restriction have been lifted.

I'd like to reassure all previous and future customers we will be back as soon as possible and will happily quote to the best of our ability through photos and video links for future projects, also will be available for advice on decorating projects at home. But right now please follow the Government Guidelines, stay at home. Quicker we all do this quicker life can get back to normality.
