You may be aware of major building worked happening within the unit our studio is housed. Sadly our landlords failed to inform us of their plans for the building work however an agreement was reached, on Tuesday 23 August 2016 at around 5pm, so that they’re able to refurbish our Derby studio from 27 August 2016. For this to happen we have been asked to close for six weeks so that their building teams can access the property. I am very sorry for the short notice but due to a number of issues, outside of our control, we do feel that this is the best thing to happen to ensure that the studio is able to provide the highest levels of service that our clients have come to expect over the years.
All those affected have been sent letters, from me, and we are working our way through the customers affected to so that we’re able to speak with them by phone. We are able to reschedule all affected customers to our Lichfield premises during the temporary closure or we can rearrange your appointment to be one of the first when we reopen the Derby studio in October 2016. Our Lichfield premises is a 20 minute drive from Derby city centre and is based at Curborough Countryside Centre which boasts free parking and a collection of boutique style independent shop and café. Alternatively we are very happy to reschedule your appointment for after 8 October 2016, when the premises will be handed back to us following the refurbishment.
The exciting news is that Firefly Derby will be receiving an entire face lift! The new studio will all be on one level making it entirely disable user friendly. We will still be at our current premises (107 Heritage Gate on Friar Gate in Derby) and the refurb will mean that we will house:
- Two reception/waiting areas
- A bigger office space for staff
- Two viewing rooms
- A brand new studio which will split into two and house a brand new, state of the art, lighting rig
- makeover room
Once again I apologise for any inconvenience cased and I hope that we will be able to welcome you into our studios, whether it be Derby or Lichfield very soon. Please keep an eye on our FB page for regular updates.
