Director’s Desk

Seven weeks into lockdown, chances are you’re feeling more than a little weary of the situation.

This week our workshops started to open. There is still a lot of uncertainty out there and we know that trading volumes are not going to be very high until we reach at least Level 3 and 2. Over the last seven weeks, we have been sharing as much information with you as possible to enable you to survive this crisis. I must remind members to please read these COVID-19 Monitor alerts as they are very comprehensive and answer most of your questions.

We hope that you are managing your stress and anxiety levels during this time. We trust that we are closer than ever to a return to normal life – albeit a ‘new normal’.  Please keep in touch with us during the first couple of weeks and let us know any problems you are experiencing. We are here to support and help you. You will have read about the Sanitisation posters we are preparing for you as well. These will be important in the workshops. 

This month’s newsletter contains some ideas to help you prepare for reopening your workshop, tips to handle your finances, and a lighthearted look at cars we’ve loved.

Here’s to staying strong and healthy!

Pieter Niemand, MIWA National Director
