A Cumbrian bespoke joinery firm has joined the effort to combat Covid-19.

Brampton's Creative Joinery and Design is usually working on unique playgrounds that are installed around the world, but due to Covid-19, business had stopped.

However, brothers Chris and Peter Johnson, who run the firm, have turned their skills to help the local community instead.

They have designed and made screens to protect workers at the area's essential businesses which can stay open during the pandemic.

Peter said: "We have the skills, equipment and adaptability that let us play a small part in helping those key workers on the front line protect themselves a little bit more.

"Our staff, in line with Government guidance, have been sent home, so me and Chris have returned to the shopfloor, maintaining social distancing to make the screens."

He said by the end of Friday, the screens would be installed at Brampton's post offices, pharmacy and butchers.

Low Row service station has ordered 16 screens, Peter added, which will be distributed around its network of garages to protect workers.

Creative Joinery and Design is based at Brampton’s Townfoot Industrial Estate and was set up around three years ago by the brothers.
