We’re really pleased to see our lovely town and many local attractions open again in these cautious times.
Many of the bars and pubs are re-opening, respecting social distancing and operating the track and trace scheme. Keep an eye out for the one-way systems some are running.
We are very fortunate that the town has lots of support and is open, but in order to avoid disappointment it may be worth checking if any venue you particularly wish to visit is open and whether they require advance booking before heading to them (just in case).
Please do visit, support and enjoy our lovely town!
