Following the announcement from the government yesterday it seems we finally have a plan for coming out of Lockdown. You can read the full roadmap plan on the government website HERE.
We are so lucky in Romsey to have such a lot going on in our town and surrounding villages, (usually) and we have missed our annual events as well as all the other activities we are all used to!
Here is a brief overview of the roadmap as it relates to events and activities.
- From 29th March – Outdoor sports facilities, such as tennis and basketball courts, will be allowed to reopen, and people can take part in formally organised outdoor sports.
- From 12th April -Most outdoor attractions and settings, including zoos, and theme parks, will also reopen although wider social contact rules will apply in these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households. Drive-in cinemas and drive-in performances will also be permitted.
- From 12th April -Non-essential retail, personal care premises, such as hairdressers and nail salons, and public buildings, such as libraries and community centres, will reopen.
- From 17th May -Outdoor performances such as outdoor cinemas, outdoor theatres and outdoor cinemas can reopen.. Indoors, the rule of 6 or 2 households will apply – although we will keep under review whether it is safe to increase this.
- From 17th May -Indoor hospitality, entertainment venues such as cinemas and soft play areas, the rest of the accommodation sector, and indoor adult group sports and exercise classes will also reopen.
- 21st June – It is hoped all legal limits on social contact can be removed.
Obviously these are all reliant on other conditions being met, such as hospital admissions etc. but we remain hopeful that the vibrant and busy community in Romsey can start to re-open.
We are aiming to put together a comprehensive list of things to do and places to go in Romsey and the surrounding villages, here on the website.
