CHAIRMAN'S BLOG: OUR PLACES OF WORK ARE NOT DISNEY WORLD

From a person who is working in the countryside it was very encouraging to hear Kate Forbes MSP telling everybody that people live and work in these places and it is not some wilderness where everybody could disappear to during the Coronavirus social distancing. She has to be congratulated on taking a very strong stance.

I know from this weekend that our estate was like Blackpool beach, people showing up in the strangest of places, dogs raking everywhere and sheep scattering to the four winds, not to say anything of the hundred people who touched all our gates with gay abandon not giving a damn about spreading any virus. 



It really makes me angry when they treat our place of work like Disney World!
