IT IS a big day for Wales with coronavirus restrictions easing to allow outdoor hospitality.
As of Saturday (April 24) six people from any number of households in Wales are allowed to meet outdoors. This total does not include children under 11 or carers from those households.
Hospitality has resumed outdoor services, including food venues and pubs, although people should still follow coronavirus safety guidelines such as social distancing and regular hand washing.
Independent pub The Butterfly Collector will open its loading bay from 2pm today (April 26), operating on a first come first served basis. And the independent bar Craft Republic will re-open its outdoor area this Wednesday (April 28).
Here are 12 pubs in Barry which have confirmed they’re re-opening their outdoor areas today or later this week (and how to book your place).
Restrictions easing also means outdoor attractions can open – this includes the funfair at Barry Island’s Pleasure Park which re-opened at 11am today.
Henry Danter, who owns Barry Island Pleasure Park, has urged visitors to be responsible – read what he said ahead of re-opening here.
But the attractions on Barry Island’s promenade, which Henry Danter is not the provider for, have been removed – find out why here.
The easing of restrictions in Wales also means that organised outdoor activities for up to 30 people are allowed.
Welsh Government tweeted: “From today, outdoor activities for up 30 people, such as outdoor gym classes, football training and religious gatherings, can resume. They must be organised by a responsible body, and can’t take place in gardens or grounds of homes.”
The restrictions being eased also means that outdoor wedding receptions – with up to 30 people – are allowed in Wales.
Subject to the public health situation gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities will re-open from May 3, excluding exercise classes. From May 3 two households will be allowed to meet and have indoor contact, subject to the public health situation.
