Dear Working From Home in Brighton,
It looks like you’re going to be spending another six months working from home. If you’re lucky you had a chance to meet up with a few colleagues in September. Who knew how much we’d miss small talk and all those tiny interactions that make you feel human!
With winter closing in on us we’ll all have fewer opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The monotony of working from home is only going to get worse. And the loneliness of only seeing colleagues via video call has really started to hurt.
We’re lucky to have a safe space in central Brighton that we can work from when we really need to. We’d like to tell you a little about why it feels like the safest place for us to be indoors but away from our homes.
The Skiff coworking space has been Covid secure since June, providing limited access to over 100 members like us who stayed on as supporters through the lockdown. We love how productive we are able to be when we’re there. It has all the safety features you’d expect along with a regularly reviewed risk assessment and Covid policy. It also has all the coworking essentials The Skiff’s been refining since it opened over a decade ago.
A few things make The Skiff feel safer to us than anywhere else we’ve been outside of our own homes:
All that and the lovely to be around people make it something we look forward to every week.
Is this the kind of environment you’d like to work in? Almost half of members are now back in the habit of regularly using The Skiff as an occasional escape from working from home. We’re starting to open up to a limited number of new members in October.
If you’d like to be one of them please join the waiting list. Jon, one of the founders of The Skiff, will then be in touch to answer any questions you have.
