From today, 24th October 2020, Sheffield enters the highest level for Covid-19 restrictions. Fortunately, it would appear we are already doing as much as the guidelines require us to do, and more.
Thankfully, we remain open and current opening hours remain. We will also continue to operate on an appointment basis. This has proved to be something everyone has liked as social distancing can be comfortably maintained.
What To Expect
If you haven’t popped by for a while and are thinking of doing so, here’s a look at what to expect and what we have been doing. The key is to simply do the best we can to keep us all safe.
So very much as before. Please arrive on time for your appointment as this helps everyone. We will ask you to sanitise upon arrival and please wear you face mask – we will wear ours.
We will direct you to your ‘socially distanced’ seating spot and then we can discuss your requirements. Please maintain your distance from other customers and staff.
We will however be asking that you come alone, or only with one other member of your household such as a youngster. Additionally, at his time a family of four would require two appointments, which can be booked at the same time.
If you arrive on-spec that is OK. However we may regrettably ask that we book you in as we are just too busy.
Accelerate Performance Centre
The Accelerate Performance Centre and Clinic will also be operating a policy that will only allow one person into a treatment room. Unless someone is a parent or a career.
Again face masks must be worn.
Alternatively, the clinic continues to offer ‘Video Consultations’.
In all cases following anyone’s visit to the store we will be cleaning all the areas with anti-viral spray before welcoming our next visitors.
We really are not enjoying doing all of this as we love a natter over a coffee. We still want everyone to enjoy their visit as much as we want to welcome you. Yet, we have to do our very best to keep everyone as safe as possible and to respond to government advice and legislation.
Staying In Touch
In the meantime if you would like to stay informed about what we are doing then Face Book and Instagram are great places to start. Alternatively, we will be trying to send out more regular E-Newsletters with features on running, training and the kit and gear we have available. We will also be using this to keep you informed of product shortages or delays in getting hold of stock due to the global pandemic.
Many, many thanks for your understanding and for your continued support. Really hoping for better times in the very near future.
