In light of the current situation Parlbys is following government guidance as much as possible in relation to self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


We do have the capacity for remote working and are confident that we will be able to provide an excellent service to our clients.  However it is our responsibility to comply with government guidance.  Our office will therefore be unmanned much of the time so we will not necessarily be able to conduct face-to-face meetings at the office until further notice.  


Please continue to use our main office line 01752 600833 which will be diverted to a member of staff at all times.  Other landline numbers will go to voicemail however this may not be checked on a regular basis.


We can also be contacted by email - [email protected] or through our Facebook page..
