It was impossible just a few weeks ago to have imagined the extraordinary times we are now in. As a charity and as a company, we are taking each day as it comes whilst also making the best decisions we can to prioritise the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, public and our business.
Fordingbridge staff will be working primarily from home with minimal office presence only for essential tasks. We have cancelled all BDS training courses until the end of July and are offering all booked candidates the opportunity to be transferred to events later this year.
Although we have not yet taken the initiative of withdrawing from Shows, it seems likely that most such events during the coming year, whether national or local, will be cancelled in the light of unfolding government advice. We will, therefore, take the opportunity to review all commitments and be better focused and resourced for the future.
All Society social events, national and local, have been cancelled until further notice, please keep watching the website or email your local branch chairman with any queries.
We are currently committed to keeping our online sales shop open and serving our customers as long as we are able, introducing additional hygiene practices and following the guidance offered by the Government to keep the Fordingbridge team and customers safe. Despatch of goods may take longer than expected as we will be working with minimal or no daily staff on site. We will keep you advised should the situation change.
We all look forward to when we can resume a normal life but meanwhile want all of our members and friends to remain safe and well.
