Fellow Members,

As we continue on the roadmap out of lockdown we would support the current guidance and advice being published by the Government to ensure that the process continues as planned.

·         You should stay at home except for a limited number of reasons - these include shopping for necessities, going to work (if you cannot do so from home), volunteering, seeking medical assistance, or avoiding domestic abuse.
·         If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work.
·         You may exercise outdoors on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble. You should stay in your local area.
·         You may socialise outdoors with one other person not in your household.
·         You should stay two metres apart from anyone not in your household, or one metre with precautions (such as a face covering).
·         Some support groups can continue with up to 15 participants - but they must not take place in a private home.
·         The police can fine you up to £10,000 for taking part in illegal gatherings.

THE FOLLOWING RULES WILL APPLY FROM 29 MARCH:
·         Outdoor gatherings of up to six people, or two households, will be allowed - including in private gardens.
·         You will no longer be required to stay at home wherever possible, although you will be encouraged to stay local.

THE FOLLOWING RULES WILL APPLY NO EARLIER THAN 17 MAY:
·         Most restrictions on meeting other people outdoors will be lifted, but gatherings of more than 30 people outdoors will remain illegal.
·         People will be allowed to meet indoors in groups of six, or with one other household.
·         The government says it will review its advice on social distancing at this stage.

THE FOLLOWING RULES WILL APPLY NO EARLIER THAN 21 JUNE:
·         The government hopes to remove all legal limits on social contact.
  • Please keep to the guidance shown below and work from home wherever possible.

The figures for Coronavirus show that cases in the Mole Valley area increased by 10 last week with 39 cases in 100,000 people being recorded.
Please keep to the guidance shown above and work from home wherever possible.

On a positive note, the Board are preparing to re-start the “Shop Local” campaign and will be publicising this in the coming weeks.

The markets team have secured more street markets for the weekends and are now running a regular “Taste of the world” market every month.
Upcoming Markets for end of March and April are:
26th March Artisan market
Saturday 3 April and Sunday 4th April Taste of the world food market
Saturday 17th April Taste of the world food market

Please stay safe and have a great week.

THIS WEEK'S EVENT -
Virtual Sales Training - Sales Strategies
Wednesday 24th March - 3 time slots available.

In the second of a series of training sessions, Tim from Hoolock Consulting reviews the main content of a sales strategy and why each part of the strategy is important. The strategy has to be specific to each product and each area where it is sold. Different products will have different value propositions, with different competitors and different target customers. Each territory will have a different landscape and while they may only be small, changes to the overall strategy may be required.
In the case of the latter times, the presentation content may well be recorded, but there will still be a live Q&A session with Tim. The remaining two topics will be: Building a Sales Process and Sales Meeting Planning.
