Following further updates in regards to the Coronavirus this week please find below the latest from North West Auctions.
The situation keeps changing day by day and we are constantly having to adapt, daily, to new guidance given from the authorities alongside other auction marts.
For the time being our weekly sales will carry on as normal and we will review our machinery sales on a month by month basis.
We are committed to staying open as we are a vital link in the food chain supply. These arrangements are put in place to reduce crowd sizes and the risk of transmitting the virus and most importantly help us keep the markets open
Please note that from this week both market cafes will be CLOSED and no refreshments will be available
ONLY VENDORS, BUYERS & HAULIERS CARRYING OUT SALE DAY BUSINESS ARE TO ATTEND OUR SALES
NO CHILDREN & VISITORS
WE REQUEST ONLY ONE PERSON COMES TO THE MARKET PER CONSIGNMENT OF LIVESTOCK TO MINIMISE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON SITE
Please use the hand sanitiser provided before you enter the market office
Where possible we would prefer vendors to drop their stock and go
We strongly recommend you DO NOT attend if any of the following apply to you…
- Over the age of 70
- Anyone who is knowingly ill, showing signs of the virus or an underlying health issue
- Any lady that is knowingly pregnant
- Once you have sold your stock please leave the market premises – please do not hang about to ‘see what the trade is like’ we will put an informed report on all social media and in our weekly newsletter
Whilst we are trying to ensure every precaution is taken to care for both our customers and staff, we must ask for your co-operation with the above and to ensure that you remain mindful of hand hygiene, with the resources that we are providing for you, and social distancing, keeping a safe distance from one another.
If you have any concerns about any of the above please contact any member of our team and we will assist where possible.
If anything changes in the operation of our sales, we will update you straight away
