Connecting This Christmas

By Ben Scott IT Manager 2020 has been a very difficult time in all walks of life. Unfortunately it will not be a year we will quickly forget, even if part of us wishes that we could. Here at Connect Insurance, we have navigated the economic armageddon diligently, all whilst protecting our customers and staff from the ongoing pandemic, and […]

Covid-19 Live Updates

By Ben Scott IT Manager UPDATED: August 2nd 2021 × Dismiss alert Lockdown Lifted The 3rd (and hopefully final) Lockdown was lifted with effect from July 19th 2021.

Pandemic Weekly Update #8

A big day is approaching, possibly the best Monday so far this year… yeah, that’s right, even better than the Bank Holiday’s have been! Monday the 15th of June; the day when non-essential retail can reopen (note: when barbers and pubs reopen, that will probably overtake this as the best Monday). No doubt a lot of people have plans to […]

Pandemic Weekly Update #7

The country is beginning to come back alive, well, sort of. It’s not like a majestic phoenix emerging from flames… it’s more like a disorientated parent sitting reluctantly on the edge of their bed bleary eyed at 5:34am for the 87th day in a row, as their child wakes them up for another fun day of staying in the house.

Pandemic Weekly Update #5

Bored of Netflix yet? Another week, another COVID-19 update; it’s still here, and so are Connect. We continue making our way down the tunnel toward the light, the better days ahead where we can all hug each other and not have to wash our hands 486 times a day until our skin is flaking off and sore. It looks as […]

Pandemic Weekly Update #4

COVID-19 continues to lurk in the shadows, and Connect continue being open for business. We’re midway through another week with very little movement, though the carrot on the stick does feel a bit closer now with some business sectors reopening including Construction and Manufacturing. For most of our customers however, the furlough continues along with the absence of routine and […]

Pandemic Weekly Update #3

It’s a new week, and yet for most of us nothing has really changed; COVID-19 continues to be a thorn in our side, life is still largely on pause, and Connect are still open for business. In positive news, you have likely heard that we’ve passed the peak of the national pandemic a couple of weeks ago. Hospitalisations and deaths […]

Pandemic Weekly Update #2

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause societal disarray and economic frustration, the challenge of maintaining some sense of normality continues for us all. Here at Connect, normality means being at the office working hard to deliver our usual level of customer service and support for our customers. For some of our customers, normality will likely now mean watching Netflix […]
