I hope you all had a very Happy Christmas, whatever it might have looked like for you this year.
Unfortunately, it was no great surprise to me when the Government yesterday confirmed that the New Forest would join the rest of Hampshire in Tier 4 as a result of dramatically increasing Covid-19 infections both locally and nationally.
This was something we had been mentally preparing ourselves for over the last few weeks.
Sadly it does mean that we are forced to keep our doors closed again for the 3rd time in the last 12 months.
However with more hopeful news regarding vaccines, I sincerely hope that this closure will not be for too long and that we can all look forward to a much more positive 2021 beyond Corona.
You have all been so supportive to us this year and on behalf of all the staff and Elliotts family, I would again like to say an enormous thank you.
We will of course continue to keep in touch with you via all our social channels, website blogs, and emails. We will very shortly be receiving our 1st Spring 2021 collections including some great new brands so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a 1st glimpse and if there is anything you require, please get in contact with us directly via phone, email or social media.
In the meantime, I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year and start to 2021 and look forward to welcoming you back in-store very soon.
Neil, Erin and the Welker family.
