Covid-19 PSA

Covid-19 PSA

We are just tuning in for a quick second to voice a few points that we believe are important to reiterate during these very uncertain and lonely times.

I’m sure you have all seen the news - our aim isn’t to repeat things that you probably would’ve heard incessantly over the last few weeks.

However, we do want to remind you that Landscape Juice Network is first and foremost a place of gathering. Please use this platform to talk to one another and to ask questions, because someone will probably have the answer. It doesn’t have to only be about mental health issues or concerns – but also about sharing ideas for coping during these times where work is scarce, or even something completely unrelated to the current issues surrounding coronavirus!

Nevertheless, as the country is slowly (some may argue very quickly!) shutting down, there will be a surge in depression, suicide rates and domestic abuse. Please know that even though we are physically isolated from one another – we don’t have to be emotionally isolated. All of us here at LJN are always available to give any support, whether it is listening to concerns and worries or just to have a chat.

We will also be putting out more blog posts, too, so that there is something to engage with and to occupy in some way or another. 

But ultimately – take care – and keep in touch.

 

All the best from us at LJN.

    Thank you Fleur. Any reassuring words will be most welcome, especially as things unfold. 

    I started my company as a joint venture with the OH including her cleaning business. I also have a PAYE job.

    I have currently no gardening clients, PAYE job, all office staff (admin) are either self isolating or working from home on full pay, & I've been told to just cut the grass with no pay if I have to stay at home . OH as of yesterday has had 3 out of a total of 12 drop out of the schedule. 

    Times are incredibly uncertain right now & I'm not convinced it has to be quite this way, but, you make an extremely good point in that there will be a surge in depression, suicide rates & domestic abuse. This, to me, will be more of an issue than Covid 19 will ever be. With this in mind, I would love to be a set of ears as well as being able to share too. Although I do have certain MH issues, I'd be more than happy to be a listener too.

    Once again thank you for this post. Wishing you and yours all the very best. 

    David.

"There is nowhere to screw a grease tube on. That's why you need to take the gearbox cover off and apply grease directly.
 Suggest you take another look at the machine. We know this is correct thing to do as we have 4 of them. "

"This is the battery hsa 86 Nick it only has 2 torx screws holding a plastic casing over the gearbox, the gearbox gets the odd bit of cuttings in which is not ideal as it is not sealed like the petrol ones."

"Agree Vic it's very impressive and high end quality. But my point is that as they use as stated "a lot of semi-conductors", then there is a good chance some of those were made in China. I see nothing wrong with that, Shenzen is top end when it comes…"

Chinese made equipment

Hi everyone, Personally I would not be buying anything made in China, Because of the covid 19  virus I believe there will be a kickback at chinese products and thus availability of parts. Never mind conspiracy theories, the chinese have covered up…
