Social distancing and temperature screening measures will be in place and we would respectfully ask all visitors to wear a face covering unless exempt. Hand sanitisers are available in the reception area. As always if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 we would ask you not to come in and to follow government isolation guidelines.
