Dear Volunteers, Friends, Customers and Supporters

We would like to share our plans for reopening with you, our plan is to reopen the retail shops from Tuesday 2nd March and to trade Tuesdays to Sundays 10am to 3pm.

Our Volunteers who are not shielding will be welcomed back in their established bubbles from Tuesday 9th March.

All of our safety measures will be maintained, including but not exclusively, the wearing of face masks, social distancing, sterilising of trolleys, hygiene and hand washing and we will keep these in place until told otherwise by Public Health England.

We welcome the vaccine rollout and are encouraging our staff, Volunteers and Friends to have it on the grounds of their and other’s health and safety but also being respectful of the choice of the individual if they feel otherwise. Staff have been included in the non-clinical priority groups for healthcare workers and have been offered the vaccine.

Thank you all for your patience and support during these challenging months – we cannot wait to welcome you all back and will be working very hard next week to make sure our retail areas are looking their best!
