Adventurer Richard Hannay, just returned from South Africa, is thoroughly bored with London life-until he is accosted by a mysterious American, who warns him of an assassination plot that could completely destabilise the fragile political balance of Europe. Initially sceptical, Hannay nonetheless harbours the man-but one day returns home to find him murdered... An obvious suspect, Hannay flees to his native Scotland, pursued by both the police and a cunning, ruthless enemy. His life and the security of Britain are in grave peril, and everything rests on the solution to a baffling enigma: what are the 'thirty-nine steps?' (Source: Goodreads.com)

At this time, the health and safety of you all is paramount. Governments have issued specific guidelines for everyone to follow to ensure our safety. One simple thing you can do is wash your hands or use hand sanitiser to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
Please visit the following sites for up to date Governmental advice:
Please be advised that a NCA (National Crime Agency) Amber Alert was issue and sent onto us via the CAA this week regarding airport workers being at greater risk of being exploited by organised crime groups during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Centre of Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) is also promoting their ‘Think before you link’ campaign which supports the NCA vigilance.
In addition, we have attached some Posters surrounding the “Think before you Link” campaign by the CPNI to increase vigilance. Further information on “Think before you Link” can be found by logging onto CPNI.gov.
Our teams in the North came together and created a video to demonstrate good hand hygiene and social distancing – great job, well done to all those involved and thank you for sharing!
