It’s Business as Usual Here at Gullands

As lockdown measures across England continue to ease, we are now open for business as usual but you will see some differences if you come to our offices in person. We have a number of measures we are taking to keep our staff and clients safe. Face masks must be worn when entering the building and your temperature will be taken on entry.

Alternatively, we can facilitate telephone, Skype or Facetime meetings. Any urgent or original documents should be sent to us by post/recorded delivery or scanned, whenever possible. Our full team continues to operate in the usual manner, so you will still be able to contact us by email and telephone.

Should any of our staff be unwell or unable to work we have an open file system which allows other team members to take over matters with the minimum of disruption. 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on the usual number 01622 689700.
