Trading Store OPEN November 2020
Updated: 3rd November 2020
Following the recent UK Government decisions made on Saturday 31st October 2020 with reference to a National Lockdown scheduled to commence 5th November 2020, it would appear that the store may still be able to open.
In part, the Government Guidelines seem to indicate that "Food shops, supermarkets, garden centres and certain other retailers providing essential goods and services" can remain open.
Protective Safeguarding Measures - we put in place protective safeguarding measures to protect both staff and members/customers. Where possible, contact surfaces have been disinfected prior to your arrival, and we thank all our valued members who have supported us over these unprecedented times. 2 people can come into the store at any one time to purchase goods.
