The Prime Minister’s announcement that non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure and all other services now have clear dates of when they could open has been very much welcomed at Yate Shopping Centre.
Speaking after the announcement, Andrew Lowrey, Centre Manager, said: “It is very encouraging and great news that there is a clear path to getting things back to normality, subject to favourable conditions moving forward. The timetable as laid out by the Prime Minister gives all businesses a clear programme to work to so that the Centre is fully operational by early summer.
“Furthermore, with all restrictions hopefully being lifted by late May, we hope that we will be able to stage a summer programme of activities. In the meantime, businesses can start to plan ahead with confidence and the knowledge that by mid-April non-essential shops and leisure will hopefully be re-opening, mid-May could see hospitality and other establishments able to start trading again with life getting back to normal by late June.
“It’s great news and let’s hope ‘lockdown’ becomes a word of the past!”
Yate’s So Brows Bar has been chosen as the new Bristol HD training academy and will start operating as soon as current lockdown restrictions for non-essential businesses are lifted.
The salon in North Walk, Yate Shopping Centre was due to open on 14th February but due to the current situation has been delayed. However, encouragingly, work on the salon and training centre is now complete so when restrictions are relaxed to allow non-essential shops to open, it will be all systems go.
