It is April 12th 2021 in Poole, South West England and there is a definite sense of excitement. All of us, not just here in the South, South East and South West are looking forward to the easing of restrictions. Entech has remained reasonably busy thanks to a brilliant client base but today will see at least gyms, shops, barbers and pubs open up so business talk has indeed gone South for today! As you know we recently increased capacity in the CNC Milling area with the purchase of a second Dugard 1000 Y Plus vertical CNC milling centre. It is running well and has provided valuable support for clients and production here but as I say no one really wants to talk shop today!
Shop-ping yes. Apparently over in Portsmouth people were outside Primark queueing from the early hours! Southampton had traffic jams going into the city and here in Poole there was a massive queue a couple of hours before the local barbers opened and it was only around 5 degrees. I guess all the long hair helps to keep you warm! And all over the South West pubs that opened around midnight were even turning people away from freezing outside gardens. It is incredible.
Like pubs, shops and shopping centres all over the South West have enjoyed a busy start to the day and I am sure it is a sign of great things to come. It is very encouraging to be able to talk about such things and it certainly lifts the spirits (no pun intended!).
I do hope you can see positive things happening too and are thinking about all the great things going on in your area as well. I have said before it is a difficult time, it is testing many of us in ways we never imagined possible but if we are careful there is light at the end of the tunnel so try to remember that. If nothing else the south coast is a lovely area to live whether it be south east or south west. We are lucky enough to have some of the best beaches and beauty spots in the country but always follow the rules and think of others. We are not quite there yet.
Above all try to stay safe, let’s look out for and support each other whilst following the government guidelines. Maybe one day we will look back and wonder what it was all about but that’s not today. Today we are busy thinking about shopping and hair cuts!
