The momentum for dramatic lock-down to contain the virus has built up since the government’s announcement on Monday. This took us a little by surprise as we expected this later in the week rather than earlier. An online meeting of the Company Board had been arranged for this evening to discuss our plans going forward, depending on follow-on announcements and the various options determined by possible changes in government advice and guidelines.
However, rather than delay until after the meeting, it has been decided to cancel our train services with immediate effect.
Further announcements on our future plans, as well as updates on access to our shops and cafés, will be made on our website / social media at the earliest opportunity.
