A POP­U­LAR vis­i­tor at­trac­tion near Bur­ton has been praised af­ter its post-coro­n­avirus re­open­ing.

Conkers, off Raw­don Road, Moira, is a fam­ily-friendly cen­tre in the Na­tional For­est.

The site re­opened to vis­i­tors on Satur­day, July 4, hav­ing been shut for a num­ber of months due to the on­go­ing lock­down mea­sures.

Or­gan­is­ers have now been praised by Visiteng­land, the na­tional tourism board, for the mea­sures put in place to re­open.

The “We’re Good to Go” cer­ti­fi­ca­tions from the agency is handed to sites demon­strat­ing a good stan­dard of clean­li­ness and so­cial dis­tanc­ing mea­sures.

It acts as a way of re­as­sur­ing po­ten­tial vis­i­tors that the at­trac­tion is ad­her­ing to Govern­ment and Pub­lic Health Eng­land guid­ance sur­round­ing the coro­n­avirus.

Op­er­a­tions man­ager at Conkers Nicky Carl­ton said: “We’ve worked hard to put all of the nec­es­sary mea­sures in place to keep our vis­i­tors safe and we’re proud to be able to dis­play our Good to Go cer­tifi­cate to re­as­sure ev­ery­one.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing vis­i­tors back safely.”

Ac­cord­ing to Visiteng­land, the “We’re Good to Go” mark should act as a “ring of con­fi­dence” for busi­nesses and at­trac­tions to show they are able to open and op­er­ate safely.

Ticket prices were re­duced at Conkers when it re­opened by 80 per cent as part of the safety mea­sures put in place when re­open­ing.

Ca­pac­ity lim­its were also put in place, while tick­ets should be made in ad­vance be­fore vis­it­ing.
