Covid-19 Latest information for events
Latest Government Roadmap
With the latest Government roadmap released on the 22nd February, giving us all guidance for the proposed dates (subject to ‘The Four Tests’ being met) for reopening, we are looking forward to being able to offer marquee hire for social gatherings again as from the start of April.
In Step 1 & 2 the rules for meeting in a private setting stays the same
2 households or Rule of 6 can meet outside (Inc private gardens)
A marquee can be classed as outside space if it has at least 50% of the sides open, if up against a fence, wall etc this will class as a side unless it is more than 1.5m away.
Step 3 from 17th May
Up to 30 guests can meet outside (Inc private gardens)
Following the Government announcement on 14th June STEP 4 is currently delayed until 19th July.
Please be aware that some restrictions have changed from Stage 3 such as number of guests allowed at weddings and funerals (subject to social distancing) For the new guidance see useful links below
Step 4 (19th July) ~ No restrictions on meeting
Rules for weddings, funerals, business premises and public events do vary, so please contact if you would like additional information.
Equipment hire is also still available for emergency response. Examples of this include but are not limited to testing stations, schools, hospital triage and vaccination stations, if you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us.
Regarding new and existing bookings, as per our terms of hire we standardly take a 25% non-refundable booking deposit. We have made all booking deposits fully transferable in the event that you need to postpone or cancel your function due to Government restrictions regarding Covid-19. We will credit deposits paid against any future hire (orders for new hires as always will be subject to availability). This is also currently in place for future bookings, so don’t be put off planning ahead for your social events.
We appreciate how frustrating & disappointing the situation has been for all our lovely clients, let’s hope the Four tests are met at each of the steps, so that we can all get back to normal.
Once again we cannot say thank you enough to all our wonderful clients who have been overwhelmingly supportive during these difficult times.
