8th Apr 2020
Watching the news footage from intensive care units and hearing the heartfelt pleas of their staff for us to ‘stay home’ only goes to reinforce our decision to pause activity across the Barr Group. At this critical time, we cannot compromise. We need to continue to support our community and the NHS by demonstrating best practice through pausing works and playing our part in curtailing the spread of the virus. We do not want to risk undermining in any way the great work of our fellow community members who are doing what they have been asked to do and are staying home.
As directors, we are working very hard behind the scenes to ensure that when the time comes we are ready to spring back into action with renewed vigour and enthusiasm. We continue to communicate regularly with our current clients and collaborators. We thank you for your patience and your continued support of our decision.
Our hearts go out to so many in our community directly affected by this crisis - our staff, our collaborators, our suppliers and their families. We echo the mantra STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS, SAVE LIVES.
Stuart, Chris and David – Barr Group Directors
