TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS!
It is with sincere regret that I have decided to temporarily close the garage with effect from Wednesday 22nd April.
Like countless other businesses, we have seen a major downturn in business over the last month or so. Initially, I was hopeful of riding things out but the Government’s decision to extend MOT expiry dates for a period of 6 months has hit the Garage sector particularly hard. Overall we have seen a fall in business levels in excess of 80% with no prospects of this improving for some time to come.
Our situation has become unsustainable and has left me with no alternative but to place all my team on Furlough.
What is particularly frustrating is the fact that the various Financial Assistance packages promised by the Government have largely failed to materialise. Now weeks into the crisis only around 1% of the Government-backed loans have been made by the Banks. Sadly I fear for many businesses help will be too little and far too late.
Nevertheless, all of this pales into insignificance when you consider the many thousands of our fellow citizens who have lost loved ones – I cannot imagine the pain they are going through. I truly hope the world will become a better and far more caring place in the future.
So – In the words of my dear Mam – “Good night – God Bless and see you in the morning” – I am just not sure which morning!
Proper little belter!
