Some business such as hospitality businesses, beauty parlours and soft play areas are still under Government orders to stay shut or restrict services.

Please do observe limits to the number of customers in a shop at any one time. Queue outside leaving 2m social distance between others. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please remember this can make others feel uncomfortable, and you should respect their wish to distance from you.

None of the shopkeepers asked for this, it severely impacts their ability to trade. Please be kind to them in these difficult times.
