 Keep the cellar in a clean condition, if you spill something, mop it up. Keep the storage area tidy and don’t leave things lying about such as empty boxes for people to fall over.

 The dray men should leave the stock in the final storage place. If you are checking in a delivery make sure this is done before signing for it.
