COVID-19 Update. 24th March 2020
Last night, after listening to the government advice, I have taken the very difficult decision to temporarily close our business and do our bit.
Whilst technically, we could continue online, as an employer responsible for the health and safety of our team of 17 brilliant people, plus our fantastic teachers, I can not ask them to continue to travel to work and put themselves and their families at risk for the sake of money alone.
Our team have rallied and come in early today and will stay late to ensure all orders already placed are dispatched, and we kindly ask you to continue ordering online, so that we may ship them to you as soon as we return. We will do this in date order.
We appreciate that your glass work will be important to you during this time of crisis and have shipped a phenomenal number of orders to you all in anticipation of this point. Some of our team will be working from home where they can, on social media, responding to your emails for advice and support and working to be ready to burst back into life.
Thankfully we have not yet had any cases among our staff, or our wider families and have implemented strict cleaning and preventative measures, but these can only go so far. It is now time for us all as one to pull together and join the fight against this awful virus.
Thank you for all your continued support, we look forward to being back soon, keeping the glass community alive. We all must do our bit and #stayathome
Stay safe and stay in touch.
James & the Creative Glass Guild Team
