Lock down notes on social media

April 2020

We started posting each day since the Lockdown began on 23 March. Our posts were to be ways on how to mentally manage the days during the lock down. There are posts for you to keep sane, and for the children to keep occupied.  Every day we posted something different and we hope one of them helped. 

I am posting this in May...and the lock down continues and so do our posts.

Kevin Pratt, spokesperson for the Access Self Storage Business of the Year Awards, says:

“Being shortlisted for this award is a huge achievement as we sifted through an incredibly high calibre of hundreds of entries! What I love about our Business Awards is that we get to see the full breadth of businesses that work out of our 58 stores. As our units range in size from a locker to a football pitch, the businesses are really varied. Each has different and inventive ways of using the Access Self Storage facilities.”
