Hello Neighbours,

Majority of the workforce like us who are still trying to operate are working from home, and are struggling to do so. Just a humble request to all. Let’s be considerate about the noise we make. People are trying to get work done, and it does not help if you mow the lawns, use your leaf blower, play the flute or other instrument, or generally make a lot of noise.

Let’s all avoid doing this during office hours please.

Thank you! Stay safe and Be kind.

Regards,
Your neighbours will thank you for this.
