We are pleased to confirm we are now reopening our office doors for clients and third parties.

 

Please note that in line with Government guidance, all visitors will be required to wear a face mask (unless you are exempt) 

 

You can enter reception during our standard opening hours of 9:00am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday to enable you to produce ID or drop off or collect documents or to attend a pre-arranged meeting.

 

  • All meetings will still be strictly by appointment only and where possible we ask that you arrange appointments by contacting us by telephone or email in order to assist social distancing measures.
  • We ask that you please do not arrive early or late to an appointment as we have to strictly control the numbers of people entering the building at any one time.
  • On entry, you will be required to obey social distancing rules and to use the hand sanitiser provided prior to approaching reception.
  • To assist with social distancing, you may find you are asked to wait on the pavement outside the office, or that the front door is locked in order to control the number of people in reception at any one time.

We have a visual walk-through you can access by clicking here to outline all the rules and precautions we have had to put in place
