Congratulations to our fourball teams who competed in the recent St Peters Golf Classic hosted at Edenmore Golf & Country Club. The event was brilliantly organised by Jimmy Magee and his team and the course, facilities, amenities and food were a credit to Edenmore to whom we would like to express our gratitude. It was indeed an auspicious occasion that we were delighted to support and most enjoyable day was had by all if a little dampened for the men who narrowly lost out to our ladies team!

Returning to some form of normality 6 October 2020

We have endeavored from the onset of the pandemic to minimise the inconvenience to our clients and to continue to deliver a full range of services. We have our full complement of staff back at work – albeit a cohort working from home to reduce density in the office. The office itself has been adapted to minimise any risk to personnel or the public. The reception has sanitizing facilities and our receptionists are segregated by a perspex screen. We have a designated interview room with similar perspex protection and as this reduces the number of interviews, we will accommodate clients during lunch hour or outside normal office hours. We would ask our clientele to observe the social distancing rules when entering and leaving our premises.

We have completed our migration into the Cloud – one of the biggest advances in our history. It expedites our working practices and facilities home working. We all enjoy brand new state of the art computers, printers and copiers for the conveyance of our staff and the benefit of our clients.

Are Covid precautions going too far? 25 September 2020
