Reporting from the Helm January 2021

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021.

Although the holidays and festive season was a little different to what we have experienced in the past, I am sure you all enjoyed some downtime with your family and friends.

Like many other families, we too had a wave of Covid pass through our family; fortunately, everyone got through it without getting too sick. This included my 80-year-old mother, who was fortunate to recover relatively unscathed. I somehow managed to avoid it while living with Ang and three children with Covid. 

We all witnessed our President pleading with the nation to exercise extreme caution as he introduced level 3 lockdown measures. Last night the UK was put into hard lockdown, and there are rumours that we could be following. Therefore, we have decided to be both prudent and cautious and not reopen the office on the 4 January as planned. We are all online and will continue to work as we did last year until the end of January. A few of our team are still on leave until the 11th; however, most of us are back and can be contacted via phone, email or zoom. We will continue to do our best to serve you.

Unfortunately, this is not the start that any of us wished for in 2021. You will all agree that our health comes first as we continue to navigate this dreaded virus. Please continue to exercise extreme caution and look after yourselves; we look forward to seeing you either online or in-person in the not too distant future.

Warm regards
