Quaker Retail.

See the Dolphin centre has closed its doors, this will obviously have another impact on the club, difficult times :(
Help get the club back to Darlo by helping to spread the word about the "Back to Darlo!" fund. The image on the right will be constantly updated with the latest total so please feel free to use the image link below the thermometer on your own signatures, blogs, websites, etc.Image

I would rather it was shut anyhow even if the Dolphin Centre was open.

Those who staff it shouldn't be out there dealing day to day with the public currently anyhow, its not essential.

It can still be run online if needed where staff can be protected.

A lot of small businesses if they can will need to diversify to survive. Pubs and restaurants need to look at providing delivery services whilst they still can at least.

There are a number already starting to advertise this. The infrastructure to do it already exists which is fortunate.

Part of me thinks this event may fast forward what was changing already.

They say Necessity is the Mother of Invention


The current situation has the potential to change society in many ways.

The High Street could easily lose many famous (& not so famous) names.

Working from home is likely to become far more prevalent for many....resulting in less demand for office space by employers etc
