Tourist attraction gets plaudits for Covid-safe work
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.
