Heading: Coronavirus (COVID19) – ISOLATION
Date: 31/03/2020

Details: ISOLATION

If you are in self-isolation because you have or may have contracted Covid-19 it is vital that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can contact the rest of the residents to let them know that they should take extra precautions and increase their sanitation and so that, as necessary, we can organise a deep clean of the communal areas in accordance with PHE guidance.

When you contact us, please can you also advise how you are organising deliveries, particularly food, to your apartment and how rubbish is to be disposed of. Please remember: –

  • rubbish should only be placed outside of your apartment door at a specific time for collection.
  • that whoever is picking up the rubbish should be properly protected.
  • that all rubbish must be double bagged.
  • rubbish which contains personal waste (e.g. tissues) and cleaning cloths must be isolated within the flat for 72 hours before being disposed of in communal bin stores.

We would also ask that you also let us know if you become aware that any of your neighbours have gone into self-isolation.

For further useful guidance regarding isolation and social distancing please go to

Heading: Coronavirus (COVID19)
Date: 18/03/2020

Details: As you will be aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is spreading across the country and is a cause for concern for all of us. It is anticipated that COVID-19 will cause disruption to all businesses and to our day-to-day lives over the coming weeks and months.

As the government’s guidance is likely to change as time passes, we would like to make you aware we have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to enable us to maintain a level of service during these unprecedented and difficult times.

Our office is currently open, but we have systems in place to allow our staff to work remotely if required. However, in the event that our BCP is put into effect and our office has to close, even with key staff working from home and engineers/contractors in the field, it is highly likely that you will experience some disruption in the services provided due to reduced capability. We will do whatever we can to minimise any such disruption but would ask for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain services during this period.

You will appreciate this is an evolving situation. We will continue to act on the advice provided by Public Health England and will inform you if there is any material change to our business continuity. 

For further information and the latest advice regarding COVID-19, please visit: –

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

As it important that we are all kept up to date about the spread of COVID-19, we ask that you inform us immediately if you or if you know of anyone in your apartment block who has either been diagnosed with COVID-19 or advised to self-isolate. We can then make the other residents and the building service contractors aware of the situation.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Important – For Owners & Residents

To help protect the developments and individual properties during this period, we urge owners to ensure that all their electrical appliances, boilers, heaters, water supply, kitchen and bathroom plumbing are checked and maintained to minimise leaks.  For all owners & residents, please ensure that the security of the development is maintained by ensuring the communal doors are shut when entering and exiting the premises.  Please also be mindful of your neighbours regarding noise, especially during the day with more people having to work from home during this difficult period.

Heading: Security Incident
Date: 18/03/19

Details: We have been advised on an incident which occurred on 17th March 2019 around 12.30pm.  A man and a woman were noted to be standing in the lobby on the first floor at Circus.  Later the couple were found to be in the downstairs lobby inside the front door with the man sitting on the floor.  The couple were approached to see if they needed any help.  They advised that they did not live at Circus or were even guests of any residents.  They advised that they had no money to get home and appeared to be either drunk or under the influence of drugs.  Highcross Security were called by which time the woman was found to be slumped on the ground.  Having managed to rouse the woman, security managed to persuade the couple to leave the building and the door was firmly shut behind them.  We have received reports that on several occasions the double doors with access to Free School Lane have been left open.  It may be that access is being gained via this entrance. 

We ask all residents to be extra vigilant in light of this incident.  Please ensure that all doors are shut behind you when entering and exiting the building.  If you do see that someone has left a door open can you please close.

Thanking you for your co-operation.
