First thing’s first, I hope you’re all having a great start to the festive season and are getting well and truly in the Christmas spirit! I certainly am, and I am looking forward to a relaxing Christmas break. I will be working reduced hours during the festive period and I wanted to clarify when I will be available and how you can get in touch if you need to.

I will be in the office full time until the end of Friday 15th December. You will be able to contact me as usual up until this point as I will be working all my usual hours.

From Monday 18th December I will be working reduced hours for the Christmas period.  Don’t worry if you have deadlines over Christmas, these will be met! I will be checking emails periodically during this time, so you are welcome to email and if your message is non-urgent I may come back to you after the break. If you have an urgent issue, please phone and leave a message if I don’t answer – I have systems in place to ensure I get your message as soon as possible.

My hours will be returning to the usual full-time schedule on Monday 8th January, and you will be able to contact me as usual from then.

Don’t forget to check out our special Christmas animation courtesy above, which was produced by Yellow Mouse Studios of Crediton.

I hope you all have a great festive break – Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
