AROUND 340 Redditch businesses will reopen on July 4.

From July 4 pubs, hairdressers and restaurants will be able to reopen providing they adhere to government guidelines.

Some leisure facilities and tourist attractions may also reopen if they can do so safely.

The Government will be publishing detailed guidance to help tourist attractions and accommodation venues to re-open safely, such as by social distancing and cleaning protocols.

A new industry standard will also be introduced by Visit England so that the public can easily see if the venue is carrying out the new rules.

Reopening businesses has been welcomed by the Redditch MP Rachel Maclean.

Mrs Maclean recently visited Hanbury Hall to welcome the re-opening of National Trust sites.

National Trust properties are now open but you must book in advance.

“I hope people get out to support the tourism and hospitality businesses which are reopening and which are so vital to our local economy and jobs,” said Mrs Maclean.

“Safety is of paramount importance and it is vital that social distancing rules and safety guidance are adhered to, and residents as well as our guests feel safe and I will continue to press that.”
