With all social distancing enforced, we still managed to have our annual Approved Workshop Scheme inspection completed yesterday, and were very happy to be told that we had passed. We are not exactly in the position that we had hoped to be; but the new workshop is up and running, and hopefully by the time of the next inspection we will have a new office and bathroom facitilies.
After this enforced lock down, we have begun to appreciate the local companies and services that are nearby. So a new section has been added to our website which we hope will give any visitors; or even neighbours, some information about the surrounding area. Hopefully we will be able to review shops, pubs, attractions and oddities as they begin to re-open on the page.
Well we are certainly back into our stride, and have plenty of caravans and motorhomes in for servicing and repair work. Our customers are certainly hopeful that they will be able to get away soon, and we also heard this week from the Caravan and Motorhome Club that some of their sites in England will re-open on 4th July. There has been a lot of interest in the Safefill bottles, and at present we have all the sizes in stock, and can re-fill bottles from our LPG rig. Gradually our suppliers are also opening, so we are confidant that life will return to some sort of normality soon.
After nearly three months shut down due to the Coronavirus, it seemed appropriate to add a blog entry now. We closed so quickly, there was no time to mention it, but having so many elderly customers, it seemed the correct action to take. As all our staff our family members, it was relatively easy to make the decision as we have become friends with our long term customers, and would never want to put them in danger.
Chris remained available to answer the phone when possible, and to keep the paperwork up to date, but from yesterday; Monday 1st June, we are fully open. We just hope that this terrible disease has not harmed any of our customers, and that we can at least help some people to get away in their caravans and motorhomes at some point this year.
