Fylde gets back to business

More businesses have reopened in Fylde following a further relaxation of the Coronavirus regulations.

Many pubs and restaurants, as well as hairdressers and campsites, are now able to open with social distancing measures in place.

Fylde MP Mark Menzies said: "I was pleased to see more of our economy reopen this weekend, as Fylde gets back to business.

"It was always going to be difficult legislating for the reopening of businesses like restaurants and pubs which come in all shapes and sizes, however it looks as though business owners have done everything possible to ensure social distancing can be adhered to in their individual premises.

"We need our local businesses back up and running, and I hope we all use them, sensibly.

"The weather was dreadful this weekend, but that may have been a blessing in disguise; we didn’t see a surge of visitors which could have overwhelmed our centres, and residents were able access shops and services in plenty of room.

"Our health remains our top priority, but seeing our businesses reopen is incredibly important as well. If we all stick to the regulations, continue washing our hands regularly and socially distance at all times, we can support our local businesses and see further relaxations of those regulations."
