Covid-19: Important update

In light of the current restrictions introduced by the UK Government on 23rd March 2020 to combat the spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the offices of Walker & Sharpe are currently closed.

The current crisis threatens the health and wellbeing not only of our staff and clients and their families, but also the wider community.

Whilst the closure of the office will undoubtedly impact upon some of the practical aspects of the work we carry out, we hope you will appreciate that every effort must be made to observe the Government restrictions by cutting out all non-essential travel and social contact.

Arrangements have been made where possible for key members of staff to carry on essential business.  If you have any urgent business please contact us by telephone on 01387 267222 or email at
