COVID-19 update

20 March 2020

Don't worry, we are not going to bombard you with more Corona news, at Harris Sportsmail. We just hope you all follow the government guidelines and most importantly look after yourself, your loved ones and wherever you can go fishing!

The recent advice from Angling Trust Chief Executive Jamie Cook is:

“Where appropriate, anglers should carry on fishing and encourage others to do so. Angling gets people out into the fresh air and away from crowded, indoor situations where infections are more likely to spread. However, we need to be vigilant and take precautions to minimise the risk to ourselves and others. I would be encouraging everyone involved in angling to follow the official advice and adapt your plans and events accordingly.”

If you are planning to get out on the bank to escape for a few hours – and are in Norfolk – then we urge you to pop into Harris Sportsmail in North Walsham and grab a few essentials, whatever they may be. For so many small businesses like us, and local shops, this will make a huge difference in these difficult times.

If you would rather have your goods delivered directly to your door, we have reduced our UK free postage to all orders over £29.99 to make ordering easier than ever. If you prefer to have your delivery left in a safe location then just let us know in the notes section and we will arrange this for you.

We have already implemented a lot of additional precautions to ensure first rate hygiene is maintained for everyone at Harris Sportsmail, with a particular focus on those of us working in the warehouse who might come into contact with any product or package. These included regular hand washing, and sanitisation of work areas several times.

If you are one of the many sat at home in self-isolation, we have plenty of special offers to keep your tackle topped up, all coming your way over the next couple of weeks. A bit of retail therapy never harmed anyone!

If you do need to get in touch, then we are here on email and across our social media channels. If you are out on the bank, then tight lines but most importantly, stay safe from us all here at Harris Sportsmail and our associated companies.
