We can confirm that all weekly and regular sales & collections of primestock also sales of store & breeding stock across all H&H auction centres will carry on as scheduled until further notice.

We would however, prefer if only Vendors, Purchasers and Hauliers carrying out business be allowed to enter the mart premises and therefore NO Visitors or Children.

We would also request that all persons attending sales, regularly use the hand washing and hand sanitising facilities provided.

We have followed and adhered to all Government and Medical Advice and under those guidelines there is no reason for us to cancel or postpone sales at this time.

We are constantly monitoring BBC and Government websites to keep updated with any changes in advice and we will act accordingly if required so please be aware that arrangements may change at short notice.

HOWEVER

We would ask people, who have experienced any symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, or a dry cough not to attend any sales, as well as anyone who has visited a high risk area abroad in the past 14 days or has come into contact with a positive Coronavirus (Covid-19) case.

We advise anyone who is considered to be in the ‘at risk’ category, i.e. the elderly, and anyone with pre-existing or underlying health conditions not to attend sales.

If you can answer yes to any of the 3 questions below, please DO NOT attend sales.

HAVE YOU

  • EXPERIENCED ANY SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS?
  • COME INTO CONTACT WITH A POSITIVE CORONAVIRUS (COVID -19) CASE?
  • VISITED A HIGH-RISK AREA ABROAD DURING THE PREVIOUS 14 DAYS?

If you are attending sales, you do so at your own risk, and we would expect strict adherence to the hand washing and sanitising guidelines.

We are taking every possible precaution to ensure the safety of our customers and staff.
