Beacon Bingo has been shut since March because of the coronavirus pandemic but bingo halls are among the businesses allowed to reopen from Saturday by the government.

The bingo hall will be deep-cleaned ahead of reopening and the arrival process will be changed to enable social distancing measures to be carried out effectively.

Each machine will be cleaned down in between customers and safety guards will be installed for additional protection.

Disposable masks will be available for our employees and sanitising stations will be set up throughout the venue.

The senior management team will continue to heed official government advice and will regularly monitor, and adjust the plan, accordingly.

Customers will be asked for feedback, at regular intervals, so the venue can take any points raised on-board, if applicable.

Mark continued: “Our campaign is focused on enabling people to have fun, whilst protecting everyone who comes through our doors.

"Retaining customer confidence is key to the success of the campaign so we will continue to listen to advice issued by the government and have ensured our plan is flexible enough to accommodate this.

"We look forward to welcoming everyone back.
