Therefore social distancing, temperature screening and hand sanitising measures will remain in place for the time being and we would respectfully ask all visitors to continue to wear a face covering unless exempt. Some of our employees will continue to work from home but face to face meetings can be arranged. As always if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 we would ask you not to come in and to follow government isolation guidelines. Attendance at our Gravesend office can take place by prior appointment only.  All our staff remain fully contactable by email and telephone.  We are grateful for your patience during these difficult times and remain committed to the safety and wellbeing of our clients and staff alike.
