Businesses in Rhyl have made all the necessary preparations for their reopening earlier this week, after being given the go-ahead by the Welsh Government.
The First Minister, Mark Drakeford revealed on 19 June that all non-essential shops in Wales will be able to reopen on Monday 22 June. The seaside resort’s hotels, B&Bs, campsites and caravan parks will reopen from 4 July, which is a massive relief for the local tourism industry.
Rhyl BID (Business Improvement District) spoke to 65 businesses during the last week of the process of completing COVID-19 risk assessments, traffic flow control for customers, and ensuring the staff and premises have protective measures. It praised how the community has supported each other during the lockdown.
Abby Pilling, Rhyl BID manager said: “Businesses worked quickly to diversify and modify their offers, so as to continue to serve our locals safely, volunteers have been out in droves, our local photographers have been flooding social media pages with inspiring images of our stunning beach, and we’ve all been cheered by the post-box toppers appearing like magic.
“It is vital that as we get back to business, we work to nurture this relationship and support our local businesses to survive and thrive.
“We wish all the businesses good luck as you prepare to re-open, and express our sincere thanks to all the businesses that have remained open, diversified and have already been working differently to keep everyone safe.”
The Welsh Government is working with local governments on ways to make our towns safer. There will be changes to public spaces and the way spaces are used.
