Vale Pubs, cafes and restaurants begin to reopen outdoors


Pubs, cafes and restaurants in the Vale of Glamorgan are starting to reopen to customers outdoors from today.

Venues will see up to six people from six households meet, with social distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Outdoor attractions, such as zoos and theme parks, can also reopen under the latest easing of lockdown.

Speaking to Bro Radio’s Vale this week, Jay and Kelly of the White Hart and Tudor Arms in Llantwit Major were asked how excited they were to be reopening: “It’s a mixture of both, I think,” Mr Jones said. “Excited, trepidation, nervous. I know this is the second time round opening after a lockdown but it doesn’t make it any easier.”

Elsewhere, wedding receptions and funerals can be held outdoors at regulated premises with up to 30 people.

Organised outdoor activities, such as sport activities limited to 30 people, are also able to resume.

Hospitality is set to be able to reopen indoors from 17 May, along with increased limits on those who can attend organised events, depending on case rates and the result of the election on 6 May.

The seven day case rate for Wales currently stands at 13.6 per 100,000 people, with figures in the Vale of Glamorgan standing at 8.2 per 100,000 people.
