Many thanks for your patience over the last 12 weeks

We have been busy planning and preparing to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene will be adhered to. We shall limit the number of visitors at any one one. This will help us to observe social distancing. We have installed floor stickers as guidance. We also have protective barriers at every desk and would encourage customers to pay via card where possible. All staff members have undergone Covid-19 training and a full Covid-19 policy is in place. I am really looking forward to opening on Monday 15th June and welcoming you to Walsh Bros – Yours, Richard BURROW
