We are still happy for families to visit any of our branches in person but should they prefer we are offering a telephone service with or without skype or facetime.

We are in constant contact with our professional associations in order to keep updated about this very fast moving situation.

Please do not be offended if our staff do not offer to shake your hand as they have been instructed not to do so. On a lighter note, elbow bumping and foot kicking are welcome but lets keep it gentle!
