From Monday 19th July we are still requesting that anyone entering the shop wear an appropriate face mask over their nose & mouth. It can be removed if you are sat on one of the sofas at a comfortable distance from a team member and/or are drinking a cuppa or having a biscuit.
We request that anyone in the centre still maintain a good distance from anyone else in the centre at the time.

Hand sanitisers are located around the centre for your use.

All surfaces are wiped down regularly with disinfectant.

Any masks that have been tried on will be wiped down before & after use.
We ask that you only pick up any items you intend on purchasing.

When cylinders are filling, they are placed in a container of water which also holds disinfectant.

All service technicians are wearing gloves whilst carrying out any works.
