Drinks to go: Kiosk at Arrow Valley Visitor Centre to re-open

Ross Crawford 22nd May, 2020

THE Arrow Valley Visitor Centre is set to re-open its outdoor kiosk this coming Bank Holiday Monday, May 25.

The kiosk will be offering a takeaway service only for visitors to the park.

The move follows the successful re-opening of Pitcheroak Golf Course in Plymouth Road last week.

There strict measures were put in place including clear signage, a one-way system, accepting card payments only, strict cleaning measures, ensuring use of the hand sanitiser, as well as tee times which must be booked in advance.

The initiative has proved a resounding hit with the course fully booked with eager golfers anxious to get back out on the course.

Rules also ensured a maximum of two people playing a round.

Course manager Paul Hawkes said: “We have had a positive reaction from both customers and staff to the measures we have put in place. During the first few days of opening, tee times have been fully booked.”

A Rubicon Leisure spokesperson said at the Arrow Valley Visitor Centre kiosk staff will be equipped with facemasks and gloves and that all measures had been approved by their health and safety advisor.

Councillor Mike Rouse, whose portfolio covers leisure said: “Although Rubicon Leisure is now a separate company we are pleased that we have had no reports of any issues relating to social distancing and across Redditch as a whole in terms of behaviour people are very compliant and I thank them for being so.”
