Our duty of care at Bronleigh


As this unprecedented outbreak of the Corona virus continues, we wanted to ensure our customers (as always), are our first priority and our proactive measures ensure your safety  and our staff alike.

As with any other day to day procedures, Hygiene and Cleanliness has always been our number one priority.

We have –

Automatic sensor flushes, taps and hand dryers to wash & dry your hands, to reduce the spread of any germs.
As therapists, we have standards to comply with, sterilising equipment/surfaces/laundry and washing our hands regularly.

None of this has changed for us.

We are monitoring procedures & information with our governing bodies & health boards and have made sure we have given information policies to each business/therapist/staff to ensure we are all following the same procedures regarding safeguarding our customers, ourselves (staff)and our families.
We have increased our provisions to continuously sterilise surfaces, door handles, banister rails, toilets, flushes,regularly throughout the day.
If you have travelled to red zone regions or think you may have been in contact with someone  who has, we can re arrange your appointments for you.
If you feel unwell, as with any other time to reduce the safety to others, please give us at least 48hrs notice (or as soon as possible). This is another procedure that we always ask for anyway.

For us not a lot has changed with our hygiene regimes but we will go above and beyond to monitor everything at a time of uncertainty and step up our procedures accordingly.

What can you do for us?

All we ask is that you help us by washing your hands thoroughly & regularly (with warm soapy water)and keep us informed of changes your end.
We also have beautifully scented Neal yards remedy Handwashes in our rest rooms, and regularly use diffusers which haveAntibacterial Oils Tee tree & Eucalyptus which help to fumigate the room with antiseptic properties and reduce the spread of germs.
Our class instructors have also stepped up their regimes, where all equipment is wiped down thoroughly and sanitizers provided. We do also have a rest room and hot water up in the studio for regular handwashing. You may also bring your own mats with you.
Yoga/pilates/meditation is needed more than ever with the anxiety surrounded around such uncertainty and our teachers are also keen to keep business running as usual (unless guidelines permit us).

Germs are around us everyday. We are aware of the uncertainty around this virus can be scary but if we all do our bit to help reduce the spread, by keeping our hygiene standards high and being sensible about our approach to our hygiene, we will all get through this together

If the level of global risk increases, we will adjust our procedures accordingly and inform you of these changes as they occur.

As a group of small businesses we are always grateful for your support and appreciate you working with us, your continued support really does mean the world to us so – Thank you.

A dedicated swimmer from the age of 5, Kendall competed in Welsh schools and won the Welsh Championships.

She uses a variety of treatments including acupuncture, electrotherapy, massage, exercise and mobilisation.

Save the Bees

Today is the first World Bee day.

Unfortunately, our bees are in trouble. The use of neonictinoids over the last 20 years has been the cause of the rapid decrease in the bee population. As part of the growing movement to ban these awful chemicals Neal’s Yard launched the Bee Lovely campaign. This is the timeline of our campaign:

2011

Neal’s Yard Organic launched the Save the Bees campaign.

They also released the first product of the Bee Lovely range with 3% of the total sales goes to charity that help save the bees.

2012

Following the success of the Save the bees campaign, Neal’s Yard launches a Bee Lovely petition.

The Bee Lovely range is expanded and a grant is introduced to provide grants for initiatives.

2013

A 120,000 strong petition was handed in to Downing street to try secure a ban on neonictinoid pesticides.

2014

£50,000 has been raised!

2016

£80,000 has been raised to fund bee projects in Ghana.

2017

Bee Lovely balm is launched and 500 bees are saved every time someone buys one! It’s that fantastic!

With your help by 2020 we aim to support 50 million bees.

How you can help the bees

Make a bee house

Find or make an open ended box made of untreated wood, around 20cm deep and any width/height

Drill holes into dry logs or sections of untreated timber, up to 18cm long, ensuring there are no splinters in the holes and that the holes don’t reach the other end. Different sized holes will attract different bees – the harebell bee, for example, will use smaller holes

Hang your bee house in a sunny position, on a firm surface such as a sturdy fence

Plant wild flowers in your garden

Bees love wild flowers as they have evolved alongside each other. Plant a diverse range of flowers can help these little pollinators thrive.

Choose your garden chemicals carefully

Pesticides containing neonicotinoids (thiacloprid and acetamiprid) are still used as insecticide for home and garden use. Please read the labels and avoid using anything containing these chemicals.

Purchase Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely range

With 3% of the total sale going to the Bee Lovely campaign this can make a huge difference to the bee charities we support.
