As you will doubtless have heard, the Government has announced another COVID related lockdown from Thursday 5th November 2020.
Whilst not all of the detail is yet completely clear, we can reassure you that Wight Holiday Lettings will be open and operational during the lockdown period to look after your property matters and to provide the most complete range of services that we are permitted by the Government to provide.
We already have clear policies and processes in place to work safely within the previously published Government Covid guidance. We will be keeping these procedures up-to-date as new guidance emerges, to make sure our staff and our clients are safe.
Our staff will, as far as possible, be based in our office but we are also fully equipped for home working should this be necessary, with modern technology and cloud based systems. We will be working our normal longer opening hours and you can reach us on our usual telephone number 01983 525710 Or you can email us from our website.
During this lockdown period we will undoubtedly have to cancel some bookings that cannot proceed under current government guidelines, for holidays or breaks, however accommodation for work purposes is currently still permitted. We will be contacting all incoming guests due throughout November to ensure you have all the information you need to stay safe and within the rules.
There is clearly going to be some disruption to ‘business as usual’ and a need to do things differently, but we will do our very best to help in every way possible
When we have more information we will issue a further newsletter but in the meantime, do feel free to contact us if you have any concerns or questions about your own holiday home or booking.
