Coronavirus (COVID-19) – New Government Restrictions
Following the gradual easing of restrictions some of our local tourism and hospitality businesses will be re-opening from 12 April. This includes most outdoor attractions including zoos, outdoor hospitality venues with table service and non- essential retail. Self-contained holiday accommodation will also be open for overnight stays for people with their household or support bubble.
