Since the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have been following Government guidelines and monitoring the situation on a daily basis. Keeping our visitors and staff safe is a top priority and we will take all necessary precautions.
We already encourage regular hand washing and ask our visitors to use the hand washing facilities as often as they can. We will continue our high level of hygiene and cleanliness and have increased the frequency of washing objects that get frequent hand contact.
We take contactless payments and ask that cash use is kept to a minimum, and we ask our visitors to give everyone a bit more space.
We will continue to take advice from Public Health England and our local health authority and will notify you of changes.
We are open as usual and we look forward to welcoming you.
