2021 Christmas

Happy Christmas and thank you for your custom over the past year. In these difficult times your loyalty is appreciated.

Why not check out the sale bargains in the shop. Ever tried ‘Fill a bucket with sale items and barter!

We will be closing at 17:00 on December 23rd and reopening at 08:00 on January 4th 2022.

Whilst we hope 2022 will be better than the last two years. It will still be necessary for customers to wear masks in any part of our premises.  We also ask that you ring the bell at the bottom of the stairs for the stores.

NSTS Covid -19 update

Red Tractor have advised NSTS of the following changes now allowed in relation to application equipment during the Coronavirus crisis. The normal procedure is that if a member has a non-compliance it has to be rectified within 28 days. This non-conformance timescale will now be extended by the Certification Body to allow for the current situation and forms part of the risk-based approach to assessments.

Red Tractor understands that members may find it practically impossible to maintain frequency of testing through third party services for a period of time, and in such cases a non-conformance is not an indication of fault. Gaps in compliance will be addressed when delivery of services are fully able to resume.

NSTS has  recommended that every Examiner & Test Centre respect & follow government guidelines relating to COVID-19.
