We can finally prepare to put 2020 behind us and work hard to reach new heights in 2021 and beyond. Following yesterday’s announcement, outside hospitality could be able to open as soon as the 12th April. Obviously, planning and effort is required to overcome other hurdles, although I am feeling excited that funfairs and other events will be open again very soon indeed.
Keep an eye on the news from the Showmen Guild local office, the Showmen’s Guild Official Facebook page. Additionally look for updates direct from the gov.uk website and other trusted sources such as Future for Fairgrounds.
You will need up to date paperwork for the show organisers and lessees, who are no doubt going to be more vigilant than ever before. They will be ensuring the public are extra safe, checking risk assessments, ADIPS and insurance.
Nobody wants to end up with another lockdown. Accordingly, make sure that you remain vigilant and strict with your Covid safe risk assessments and procedures. Do not let yourself become complacent as time goes on. Importantly, do not give the government, local councils or the police any reason to close your fair.
So, take the time to make sure that your equipment checks are up to date, and ensure that your visitors and attendees are kept safe by updating your risk assessments and getting an insurance quotation for your public liability and equipment from Acer Insurance. Do you need cover urgently? Not a problem, we can normally provide policy documentation the same day to satisfy your lessee.
