A message from our CEO Tim Jones

Dear Team

The government have announced new nationwide measures due to the growth of COVID19 figures within the UK. The increasing rates of infection have placed the country at a critical juncture in its efforts to suppress the virus.

Living with the virus has gradually become a normality for us in our day to day lives and it is easy to become complacent as time moves on. At this crucial point in time, I would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone how essential it is to continue adhering to the measures already in place with regards to social distancing and levels of personal hygiene, in addition to the new practices due to be implemented this week both at work and when we return home.

The increase in national infection rates combined with our highest ever occupancy levels means it is time for a renewed vigor in our approach to the virus, bringing the emphasis of minimising the potential for transmission right back to the forefront of our minds.

The safety of our team and guests has been, and will continue to be, paramount to us as a business and we will continue to fight the virus with the integrity and intensity shown from the start of the pandemic.

I would like to thank everyone for pulling together as a team and, despite the continual changes to our ways of working, delivering consistently high standards and achieving some amazing results along the way. HOST is a key part of the HPC project and all our efforts contribute to its success in these challenging times.

Keep each other safe.

Yours Sincerely

Tim Jones

HOST CEO
