Coronavirus and COVID-19 update, as of 25 July 2020

Although we are regaining some of our freedom, we're some way off being back to normal. I want you to understand the current situation as it affects Godfrey's Ear so you can be confident of your safety.

Of course, if you have any concerns that are not covered by the notes below then please contact me and hopefully I will be able to set your mind at rest.

Brailsford studio

Due to limited space, to ensure your visit is safe please contact me in advance to arrange a time when you can be sure of being the only visitors to the studio.

Derwentside Shopping Mill

Derwentside reopened their doors on 15 June and are now back to opening 7 days a week. They have put social distancing measures in place and have plenty of hand sanitising stations.

Online sales of restyled furniture

I always use the same local and reliable courier who operates a one-person delivery service. They have remained full operation throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. Tail-lift vans are used for large items so they can be left without contact.

Online sales of paint and other furniture restyling products

I am still offering free local contactless delivery (see the delivery policy for areas covered).

Other items will continue to be sent by post.

Workshops and courses

I am hoping to resume workshops in the autumn, but only when it is perfectly safe for all of us. When they do resume, they may initially be restricted to small numbers — probably 2 at most — to ensure proper distancing can be maintained.

I am investigating the possibility of running some workshops online.
