COVID19 Test and Trace

On July 19th 2021, England will move to Step 4 which  means that many legal restrictions will end, BUT we ask for your support with the following:
  • Whilst the legal requirement for face masks to be worn indoors will be removed our staff will continue to wear them for their own and your safety.
  • Please continue to support NHS Test and Trace by ALL customers ‘checking in’ using the QR code.
