COVID-19  Statement 20th March 2020

To all our lovely customers, past, present and future

We would firstly like to express our astonishment at the current crisis and send our best wishes to everyone to stay healthy and safe during this unprecedented time in our lives.  I am so proud to be British and I know that as a nation we will do our best to overcome these difficult times and aim to eliminate this virus from our lives with determination and resilience.  We will all follow the government advice and unite to protect our most vulnerable and we will help our young people to understand the importance of this combined force.

We are still very much open for business as usual and would like to outline the measures we have put in place to keep our staff and customers safe.  Our administration staff are now working from home and any communication will be uninterrupted and continue as normal by email at poshbananas@live.co.uk.  We are suspending our telephone ordering facility at the moment to enable our staff to work from home and look after their children without the phone ringing!  Our packaging facility does not allow any person other than staff on site.  We are fastidious on handwashing and hand sanitizing and our packaging staff wear masks and gloves.  We have introduced antibacterial cleaning into the packaging process. We are following all recommended health and safety practises and keep updated on current advice.  As of now, no staff are showing any coronavirus symptoms but any that do will be asked to self isolate immediately

We know that buying gifts may be the last thing on peoples minds right now but we want you to know that we are still open for business if you need us.  Most of our stock supply is unaffected at this point.  If you wish to send a gift to someone directly, as a surprise or where there is a case of self-isolation, you can rest assured that the measures mentioned above along with a sprinkle of love and blessings will be put in place.  We will lovingly gift wrap and supply a gift tag, free of charge and will be applying this option to our products on the website over time. In the meantime, if the product you have bought is intended as a gift and is being sent directly to your loved one, please email us after you have placed an order to let us know you would like it to be gift-wrapped and what message you would like us to include.

We hope to be able to carry on with our business through these challenging times and really appreciate your custom.  We want you to remember that even at times like these we all have so much to be thankful for.  Spring is ignoring the Coronavirus pandemic and is bursting out in all its magnificent glory.  The days are getting longer, the sky is getting clearer and the sun is beginning to shine.  The love and compassion of the British people is showing itself now more than ever and we are all spending more family time with our loved ones.  We may not be able to go for a meal or to the theatre for a while but we can find exhilaration and soothing in our beautiful countryside and parks where the birds are still singing and the daffodils are dancing in the breeze.

Try to find some peace and calm each day, stay safe and look for something to be thankful for each morning.

With all our best wishes

The Posh Bananas Gifts Team
