Easter property cover

Flourish House will be closed for the Easter bank holiday period from Thursday 14th April to Tuesday 19th April 2022 (inclusive), the property helpdesk will not be monitored during this period, with normal service resuming on Wednesday 20th April 2022. Should you require assistance, we have created an emergency list of contractors which may be helpful. All these contractors have generously offered to provide cover and have instructions to make safe in the first instance.

Should you require assistance, we have created an emergency list of contractors which may be helpful. All these contractors have generously offered to provide cover and have instructions to make safe in the first instance. Please note not all contractors are available all the time and we have indicated on the list their availability. If you have an emergency, please follow these steps:

  • Contact an appropriate contractor from the list and explain you are housed by the Diocese Bath & Wells.
  • Explain the issue.
  • Contractor will then assess the urgency and either agree a call out or offer advice over the phone and/or schedule a call out at an appropriate time.
  • Email the property helpdesk to let us know what you have arranged.

Please note, this is not a free service, so please be mindful of increased expenditure for holiday call outs. A dripping tap on Easter Monday is not an emergency! If you cannot find a contractor local to you, then select one that is the nearest main town or you can source your own.
