Staying safe at Brockhole 

For us, it’s important that we remain mindful of our customers’ and colleagues’ continued safety and well-being. With that in mind, we wanted to reassure you that while the wearing of masks is no longer mandatory, we support those who still decide to wear one and encourage others to respect their decision to do so.

We would also like to mention that it’s been a tricky few years for everyone and we wanted to say thank you for all your continued support and kind wishes. You’ve supported us through all the varying restrictions that have been thrown our way and come rain or shine, we have appreciated seeing you. 


We're good to go
