As a child one of my favourite Sunday afternoon movies (anyone of a certain age will know what I mean) was the 1951 version of The Day The Earth Stood Still. It starred Michael Rennie, an alien who had been sent to Earth to get us all to see some sense. We could all see the threat. The invincible spaceship, big robot with the power to bring the planet to a halt, which he does.

Well, the Earth is being brought to a halt now. But there’s no alien spaceship and robot we can all see. No, instead there’s an unseen alien virus named covid19 wreaking havoc on the world, taking loved ones before their time, with mankind working together to find a cure and fight it.

I’m sure we’ll beat this unseen alien threat. I’ve even greater hopes we’ll come out of this a better, more thoughtful, loving and caring world.

We’re already seeing evidence of this with The UK governments call for 250,000 volunteers to support our health service frontline. A big ask at any time. Yet within 24 hours more than 400,000 people came forward. There’s the hope and faith for a better world if ever we needed it.

But that’s only part of the story. We all have a part to play in this battle, the biggest part of which is for each one of us to stay at home, keep a distance from outsiders, leaving no opportunity for the enemy to attack from within.

This isn’t a sci-fi movie this is real life and happening now. But we still need life to go on and on that note we’re here for you if you should need a little retail therapy. With our mail partners collecting our orders daily (as their classed an essential service) we’re fortunate to still be able to get your orders to you in a timely fashion.

We’re also working hard to get new stock to meet the needs of anyone staying home. You’ll already see we’ve been able to obtain great life savers like antibacterial soap and medical grade 80% alcohol hand sanitiser. For any volunteers that need them, we’ve also got nitrile non-latex gloves. We’ve also work gloves and Hi-Viz vest on the way. All with FREE POST AND PACKING with our compliments when you quote coupon code Freepost1

We’ll be getting tools in store soon to help with car and DIY maintenance task. But if there’s anything you would like to see in store please let us know, we’re always open to suggestions, and will see what we can do to help.

On that note, we would like to wish you, and your loved ones well. We would also like to salute and thank all the health workers and volunteers worldwide for their efforts at this time of need. You’re truly amazing, big hats off to you all…
