Hi everybody after Chris did the London ride 100 last year, he said that it would be the last time I did a charity ride as you’re constantly asking your same friends to dig deep every time.
But what we are going through at the moment is unprecedented and the NHS need all the help they can get. So today he decided to ride 100 miles on Zwift to Fundraise for the NHS, which believe me has been tougher than any previous 100 mile ride I have ever done before. I know money is tight for people right now but if you could donate to my just giving page below.
It’s for a great cause. I think we all agree the NHS are doing an amazing job and I think we are all guilty of taking the NHS for granted.
Stay safe everybody and thank you to all that donate no matter how small it is much appreciated by the NHS and MHS.
During the unprecedented COVID-19 situation, we are taking steps to protect the health of our team members and reduce the need for people to come into our offices. As a result, our offices and trade counter are closed.
Our office staff and support agents are working remotely whilst our engineers/mobile workshops are attending onsite priority jobs.
Risk assessment is undertaken by the attending engineer as always, at present paying particularly attention to exposure to other people and maintenance of social distancing.
Please feel free to open tickets or call jobs in as you usually would – each job will be assessed on an individual basis.
We recognise that these are unusual times but also know that business drives our economy and the best action is to remain open for business 24 7 until government advice dictates otherwise.
Rest assured, for now, besides making rigorous adjustments for your safety, we are continuing as usual. For instance, we have increased the frequency and depth of cleansing in our offices, vehicles and equipment, and are we are continually training our staff on extra hygiene measures.
We would also like to reassure you that any members of staff will self-isolate if they show even the slightest of symptoms of Coronavirus COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone who does.
While the next few months are uncertain, let’s work as a community. Together, we will get through this.
Until Government Guidelines advise otherwise, we are staying calm and carrying on.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales Aircraft Carriers
We had chance this week to see two Royal Navy aircraft carriers that are currently under construction. There’s the Queen Elizabeth, due to become operational in 2020, and Prince of Wales, due in 2022. They were both parked side by side at the MOD base at Portsmouth. This was an unusual sight, as it’s very rare them being together in docks.
The carriers are 920 ft long and displace 65,000 tons apiece. They both feature a new ski jump to assist jet takeoff. This has replaced the old catapults. Each of the carriers can carry 36 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters and 4 Helicopters.
Amazing engineering for a ship the size of 3 football pitches.
A huge thank you to all the Ladies and Gents of the Royal Navy and their families, for the great work you do.
