What measures are in place?
Everyone that visits us, whether that’s to work or to shop, will need to wear a face covering. A face covering is something which safely covers the nose and mouth. Anyone not wearing one, could be refused entry to the centre or asked to leave. There are some exceptions, these being children under 11, people with disabilities or those with breathing difficulties. Members of the team will be on hand to support our visitors throughout their visit.
Social distancing will be essential and we have a range of additional safety measures inside. In terms of the in-centre experience, we’ll be asking people to follow a marked route and to keep apart at all times.
We have hand sanitisation stands at key points throughout the centre for everyone to use. We ask that everyone makes use of these when entering the centre and regularly throughout their visit.
Once inside, we ask everyone to do their part too and follow the official guidance and in-centre information displays carefully and the follow the marked routes shown by our floor stickers and directional stands.
Our teams will be managing the number of visitors inside and we will have controls in place at entrance and exit points to help us do that effectively. Where necessary, we will have a queueing system outside to regulate footfall, so please come prepared with a coat and umbrella just in case.
We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and support as we serve our local communities in the way we know best.
