Bromsgrove District Council has sprung into action to ensure that shoppers and revellers stay safe following the change in Government guidance.

New signs, urging people to keep a safe distance are replacing the 2m signs in the District’s centres and hand sanitiser stations remain in place.

The Council is also urging people to stay safe in light of new legislation, currently going through Government, which could see more tables and chairs from cafes and bars being put onto the streets once permission is granted from the local authority. This is being managed by Worcestershire Regulatory Services which is hosted by the Council.

Council Leader Karen May said: “I am delighted to see our shops and small businesses re-opening with even more doing so at the weekend, including pubs and restaurants. I have always been an advocate for small businesses, but now more than ever, after being closed for so long, our independent outlets need our support so please pay them a visit.

“While it’s great to see our centres come alive again, I want to remind people that we still need to take precautions to ensure we keep each other, and ourselves, safe. So please adhere to the Government guidelines and the signs which will be all around our centres.”
