Covid-19 Updates

Covid 19 - Update 15/06/2021
On 14 June 2021, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced that due to not all of the four tests for proceeding to step 4 in the UK Government roadmap having been met, step 4 openings will be delayed until July 19th, with the exception of weddings and wakes of more than 30 guests which can still go ahead with social distancing.

The situation will be monitored daily and if after 2 weeks, the risk looks like it has diminished, the Prime Minister indicated that it would be possible to move to step 4 earlier. In the meantime, pilots for sporting events, such as the Euros, and some theatre performances will continue.

The guidance on what you can and cannot do in England has been updated with a summary of changes from 21 June, including a little more information on changes to weddings or civil partnership ceremonies, wedding receptions or civil partnership celebrations, and commemorative events following a funeral such as a wake, stone setting or ash scattering. The number of people who can attend these events in a COVID-Secure venue or other venue (such as a garden of a private home) will be determined by how many people a venue can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place, including guests of all ages and anyone working at the event.

There is also new information available for those organising an event in venues such as private gardens or on private land.

PLEASE NOTE: Your booking is safe with us - any event that could not go ahead was automatically converted to a credit. Rescheduling is simple: click here on "how to redeem a gift voucher or credit note". So keep an eye on the website and when you see a date you would like to attend, email us to let us know which one!

Many thanks, Cécile (Proprietor, Wine Tutor, Sommelier & Champagne Expert)
