Visiting our Office


We would be grateful if you could read the following regarding visiting our office.

We would be grateful if you could please call our office to arrange a suitable time if you need to visit our office.

We are still currently closed to the public but working behind a locked door.

We are able to see people briefly downstairs (not inside our office) so obviously we need to make sure overlapping does not happen.  

We also would ask that you ensure you wear a face covering where possible when calling at our office.
