Appetite Events, COVID-19 Statement

Appetite Events, COVID-19 Statement

First of all we hope you are all safe and well. 


Following the UK Government’s announcement on Monday closing all non-essential businesses, the Appetite Events Board has taken the decision to keep our team safe and well by closing down our Operation, on a temporary basis.  To ensure the business is able to respond to enquiries and provide support to our clients, partners and stakeholders, a number of our fabulous sales team and the accounts department will be working from home.  We are confident that taking this step is the best way to ensure that our client’s needs are met and that the business is best placed to resume trading once the current crisis is over.
 
We are offering all clients who have paid a deposit, the opportunity to reschedule and apply the full amount of their deposit to a new date, subject to availability.  Obviously, there may be some scheduling difficulties when social distancing measures have been lifted. We will do our utmost to provide as much flexibility to our clients as possible and we will work with clients, venues and third party stakeholders to identify suitable dates for their events.  We intend to make this offer available for an initial period of 12 months, post lifting of social distancing measures, however, we may choose to extend this period if we find that there are a significant number of events unable to reschedule in this period.
 
Currently we are looking for opportunities to repurpose our facilities to provide support for the relief effort for COVID-19. We have a large, well equipped production kitchen with high capacity cook chill facilities and cold storage, two large temperature controlled vehicles and a Luton Van. Our Unit has great food hygiene systems in place and could produce large quantities of safe, healthy meals for those in need. If anyone knows of any organisations that require assistance, or that could utilise our resources, please pass on my details. nigel@appetiteevents.co.uk.
 
Please do not hesitate to get in touch for any reason whatsoever. We would love to hear from you if we can help with anything or even just for a social call.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and I would like to wish all of you, your friends and family the best of health for the coming weeks on behalf of the whole team here at Appetite Events.
 
Kind regards and best wishes,
 
Nigel
