Following the relaxation of the lockdown rules, local MP Ruth Edwards went to show her support for local pubs by pulling the first pint for the first customer at the Nevile Arms in Kinoulton.
This is following the change in the guidance which allows pubs to re-open from the 4th July, so long as they have the correct safety measures in place to protect staff and customers.
The new rules, which also allow hairdressers and barbers, cinemas, museums and galleries, in addition to hotels, B&Bs, campsites and caravan parks to re-open will help in beginning to get our communities back to normal in the safest possible way.
Commenting, Ruth Edwards said:
“I know this pandemic has been particularly hard on those in the hospitality sector and allowing pubs and restaurants to re-open will help to kick-start the local economy in a safe manor.
“Pubs, such as the Nevile Arms, have been meticulous in making sure that every precaution is in place to protect their staff and customers.
“Thank you to Trish Conway and her team by allowing me to celebrate their re-opening by welcoming their first customers back through the door.”
The owner of the Nevile Arms, Trish Conway, commented:
“It's been a massive effort getting everything ready. A lot of hard work has gone into making it a safe but enjoyable experience for our customers.”
