“We are absolutely devastated that this has happened. Sadly, it is a situation that a lot of businesses are facing and will face in the coming months. We have taken ALL precautions as per government guidelines – deep cleaning after each shift, checking staff temperatures, staff wearing PPE, social distancing measures, track and trace and installing hand sanitiser stations throughout our premises.

“We have undergone risk assessments and staff training to keep our staff and customers as safe as possible since re-opening on the 3rd July.
