Stage 4 Relaxation of Covid Restrictions
Throughout the pandemic customer and staff safety has been at the forefront of all our decisions and actions, while we are aware of the Government’s plan to move forward with the relaxing and removal of all restrictions from 19th July 2021 we feel the need take a more cautious approach is the right thing for our customers and staff. We must remain vigilant and maintain the highest standards of service and cleanliness demonstrated throughout the previous 16 months and therefore whilst some restrictions will be lifted we don't plan on returning to 'Pre Covid' times straight away and in some aspects we may keep certain procedures in place for the safety and welfare of customers and staff.
