ThisWeekinFM COVID-19 Statement
19 November 2020 | Updated 25 February 2021
 

This statement will be updated frequently, as and when more information comes to light.

Being at the heart of the news industry, we understand how important communication is during these times of uncertainty. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to let you know how we're getting on here at ThisWeekinFM.   

We are all well and business is running as normal, but we have measures in place to best protect our team, including remote working. We are continuing to take advice from the necessary authorities with regards to up-to-date information and guidance on the outbreak of COVID-19.

We understand many of our clients are concerned about the risk to external visitors coming into their business, and it's a concern we take seriously. Simultaneously, our team's health is very important to us, and we need to make sure we are all protected.

Consequently, we have postponed on-site visits and client meetings. However, there are several ways we'd be happy to meet "face to face" without having that contact.

First and foremost, individual team members are geared to use pretty much any conference system you have in place and we can also facilitate video calls over WhatsApp, FaceTime or Skype.

 

Facilities Industry Annual Summer River Boat Party

 

ThisWeekinFM is delighted that The Annual Summer River Boat Party will be the first event to return on 15 July 2021.

All government guidance will be adhered to regarding hygiene and social distancing measures.
