It's been almost twelve months since capturing Paul's thoughts and plans for late 2019 and 2020. We caught up with him again yesterday and clearly much has changed from the original plan, however there are many positives within the business, and the future is looking bright despite the pandemic.

From managing the team, engaging with our customers online, and safely delivering new and used Audi's while social distancing - Paul and his team have it all in hand.

We all hope to welcome past, current and future customers to Lake District Audi soon.

Your health and safety is our number one priority

The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate the news and is causing impact around the world. We are monitoring developments closely and connecting with you directly to communicate the precautionary measures we are taking across the Hadwins business to protect the health and safety of both you and our employees.

Following the latest Public Health guidelines from central government and the World Health Organisation, we have put in place enhanced health and hygiene measures across our entire business to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit whilst we operate in a safe and responsible manner.

We have enhanced the frequency and scope of our onsite cleanliness measures to include sanitisation of high touch points and increased availability of soap and/or hand sanitizer in community spaces in all of our buildings.

We have temporarily restricted all non-essential international and domestic business travel for our employees.

All of our employees are following local health authority advice to stay at home if they’re feeling unwell.

We remain in close contact with our teams across the business and our local authorities, so we can prepare for all eventualities as this challenging situation continues to evolve.

We are still very much open for business and remain committed to providing the very best service we can over the coming weeks. That service includes home demonstrations of our range of cars, be that any new or used models, and our aftersales departments continue to offer a collection and delivery service (subject to availability).

Please don’t hesitate to call, email or drop us a message via social media if you need us.

Thank you for your continued support, your friends at Hadwins Motor Group look forward to seeing you soon.
