Christmas 2020 -Keeping Christmas Traditions Alive in a Year of Uncertainty

Christmas 2020 -Keeping Christmas Traditions Alive in a Year of Uncertainty

Barry Kerrigan |

On March 13th our business was turned upside down when the government closed the schools and sent the whole Country into lock down.Thankfully we were classed as an essential business and our staff as essential workers which meant we could stay open and still serve our communities in their moment of need.

We started a home delivery service to service the cocooning people amongst our communities and to see how happy these people were that we could deliver to them made the 14 hour days, 7 day weeks all worthwhile in some cases we were the only person they interacted with for the whole day.

We have had to adapt internally to allow our staff to work in an environment they feel safe in and adapt how customers shop in our shops.

This Christmas will be like no other any of us have ever experienced its unlikely we will be able to shake hands or hug people we have not met in a long time.

The traditional Christmas parties will be a toned down event and maybe be even done over Zoom.

Meeting up with friends for a Christmas drink may have to put off for another 12 months but what will not change will be my desire to offer you the best produce our island has to offer and to make 2020 the best Christmas possible under the cloud of Covid 19.

If there is anything we can do please don’t hesitate to ask and we will do our utmost to help you in whatever way we can.

Have a safe Christmas 

And thank you all for the support in 2020.
