february news flash
Another month has flashed by and so a new manley newsflash! A good occasion to look back on the first weeks of 2021. The novel c-word is still on everyone’s lips (figuratively speaking of course!) But somehow, we have managed to cope with the masks, the barrier gestures and remote working. We hate the distance, but respect the rules.
