Today Boris has confirmed that the lockdown in England will be eased further as from Saturday 15th August 2020. 

So what does this mean?

  • Wedding receptions are now able to take place in the form of a sit down meal for up to 30 guests
  • Indoor theatre, music and performance venues are allowed to reopen but with social distance audiences 
  • Casinos, bowling alleys, skating rinks and soft play areas are allowed to reopen 
  • The piloting of a small number of sporting events to test the safe return of spectating sports will resume 

All of the above however will not be valid in places that are in local lockdown. 

Whilst things continue to reopen and seem to be getting back to normal, it is important to continue washing your hands, keeping your distance where possible, and wearing your face coverings in all public areas.
