Tier 4 announcements have left many Londoners feeling alone and isolated this Christmas. We just wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to you all and let you know that we are here. This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone in the hospitality industry, but now more than ever, it is important to see the enormity of the community we find ourselves in. You are not alone in this fight, please reach out if you need to, we are stronger together.

Stay connected with friends and family. If you can’t be there in person, pick up the phone. I know we all hoped we would have seen the back of Zoom by now, but it could be the only connection for some, this festive season. That quiz that is an annoyance to you, could be the only social interaction for another.

If you can’t reach out to friends and family, there are many organisations, ready and waiting to speak with you. Below is a list of just a few.

Your mental health is important. It is perfectly okay to feel however you are feeling. If we stick together, we will get through these new restrictions, and come out the other side in a world full of vaccinations and celebrations.

The team at Posh Cockney would like to thank you once again, for everyone’s continued support this year. We are proud of how much we have grown, and we can’t wait to see where 2021 takes us.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a much brighter New Year.
