Covid-19 CEO Statement – Monday 23rd March 2020

Gary Walters

CEO ( HICO Events Limited)

Following the Government announcement on Friday evening regarding the closure of licenced premises, I decided that the only socially responsible course of action was to cancel events for an initial period of two months. The Government continues to make clear how important it is for us all to play our part in National efforts to deal with this pandemic and I, and my team, will be doing exactly that. Our team is still passionate about making your wedding to be everything you would want it to be. Sadly, some of you might have your original plans diverted by the effects of the virus but please be assured that we will be with you as we share the journey down this new, unexpected and unpredictable path. 

We will be contacting you all on a regular basis to discuss the latest developments and to work on new plans for your day.  Please remember that this crisis and the resulting situation are out of our control. Like you, my team are dealing with their own family concerns and uncertainties and share many of your frustrations with the situation. I can assure you that they are doing their best for you in completely unprecedented circumstances and they have my full support.  My hope is that we can all get through this particularly turbulent time and things will soon return to normal (or at least a new normal) and we will then be able to celebrate accordingly. 

We are all in this together and it is by dealing with it together that we will get through it.
