Spring update

Posted in: News

Hot Bed Press is still closed during the coronavirus pandemic. The latest easing of lockdown announcements are great news; a beer in a pub garden, meeting outside in more than one household, shops to reopen etc. However, due to the nature of our business we are not allowed to reopen to members just yet.

There will be more announcements from the Government on further easing or restrictions to come into place no earlier than 17th May. We will be following the news closely and looking to reopen as soon as it is practical, to do so.

 

Of course there’s more to it than just opening the doors again and welcoming everyone back. We have to plan and get booking systems back in place, clean the workshop thoroughly again and make sure we have done everything we possibly can to make the workshop safe.

 

We currently have some staff on furlough or flexi-furlough [and when we are back in are back down to 4 staff now that Kate has moved on]. Planning for the whole staff team to be back in and able to work in a safe working environment is something we are taking every precaution to get right.

 

When we do reopen it is going to be a steady and gradual reopening to make sure we don’t go to quickly and have to shut again. We are working hard to get things right and be confident on everything running smoothly, but there’s complex decisions and planning to be done over coming weeks.

 

We will be back better and stronger as an organisation ready to welcome everyone back into an improved Hot Bed Press.

 

 

 

It is likely that we will not reopen until June.
