Jerome urges people to help tourism bounce back in Broadland following reopening on 4th July.

Thanks to the efforts of the British people we are bringing coronavirus under control allowing the Government to announce the safe reopening of additional parts of our economy. The Prime Minister has therefore set out further changes to lockdown measures in England, to ensure people can see more of their friends and family, help businesses get back on their feet and get people back to the jobs they love.

As part of this careful easing, from Saturday 4 July, pubs and restaurants will be able to reopen, providing they adhere to guidelines, and many leisure facilities and tourist attractions may also reopen if they can do so safely.

I urge people to show their support to businesses reopening in Broadland to help them bounce back.

I am delighted we have created the space to allow people to take a much-needed holiday, whether on the Broads or in self-contained accommodation, and enjoy everything Broadland has to offer. I hope people get out to support the tourism and hospitality businesses which are reopening, and which are so vital to our local economy and jobs. This is only going to work if we all continue to use our common sense and follow the social distancing rules and safety guidance.  The Government will continue to monitor this closely to make sure that we can continue to benefit from greater freedom whilst still keeping downward pressure on the virus.

Across the whole country people have been looking forward to taking day trips, weekend breaks or staycations following their extraordinary efforts in lockdown over the past three months. I hope people get out, support tourism businesses and enjoy themselves.
