What was the outcome?

Postie collections are continuing for the foreseeable, no plans to reduce or stop them at all.  He also said that all post offices will be remaining open, although some may be on reduced opening hours.

Thanks for the reply, as long as we don't get shutdown by the government, I think we'll be OK.  I've put a few extra measures in place today to make sure that the unit and staff are all safe, so they're sorted.  For the first time in our history we'd been building a safety net in the bank account, so we've ringfenced enough for about a month's worth of bills if something serious happens.  And there's enough sculpts in the pipeline to keep the new releases coming!

There is another factor to the Keep Pendraken Open argument.  The role of your products in keeping up the morale and good mental health of a vulnerable demographic (your regular mail order customers and potential customers).  I am a pensioner with UHI asthma. (Underlying health issues).  I would not be priority in triage for a ventilator.  I will die a slow and lonely death if I connect with the virus.

That little package from Pendraken will keep me sane in isolation . This forum will keep me in the loop. I am happy to provide you Leon with such written testimony.

How many of you feel the same way?

With me in semi-retirement and thus more at home, Lee says she dreads the day I run out of armies to keep me busy. Invaluable therapy.

The key factor in the "balance of risk" is how Pendraken staff commute to work.  If it is by public transport  then its "game over".

They will have to stay at home.

If its by private means however, and they travel alone or with fellow family members, then it is in accordance with PH England's current guidelines - although this may change.

Well, warlord games already shut down, and gw has shut down as well.

But i'm imagining these are larger companies (staff wise) so i guess that's kind of logical.

GW shuts down and Pendraken is still slaving away....easy to see where the Dunkirk spirit went to.

Like I said, its comes down to two factors:

1. How the staff commute to work.

2. If workspace conforms to PH England guidelines.

I had a conversion with "the Pendraken  boss" this morning. She is a canny lass and informs me that both 1 and 2 are fully met.

Leon is on the night shift.  Smiley

This emergency will drag on until the summer.  Already there is concern about domestic violence, suicides and a plethora of mental health issues.   When we deal with the pressing physical health issues - the mental wellbeing will become a priority.

She terrifies me too.  Get on her wrong side and your orders will be treated with the same  contempt of something nasty on the sole of her shoe Smiley

Well, thatís a bit of an unfair comparison and Dunkirk spirit is exactly whatís going to prolong this disaster!

GW and Warlord closing down is corporate responsibility; Pendraken staying open with reasonable measures put in place, likewise  Thumbs up

Just been to post office to drop some orders off, they now got new signs up saying hours will be restricted to 10am-3pm from Monday and "essential business only". Apparently ebay sales and MeG sets are essential business, so that's fine.

In conversation with a friend last night I realised that in the space of a few weeks I have moved from being an idle, mildly agoraphobic, slob to being a responsible citizen Smiley

Yep, as Adele said this morning all of the staff come to work in their own cars, and we've completely segregated the workplace so that there's no contact.  The casting stations are about 3m apart, the packaging team are 6m away from everyone else, I'm in my office, etc.

She terrifies me too.

And me!

Yay, huzzah for me!  Wait.. what did I do?  Was it good?!
