Here's a Quick Run-Through of Those All Important Dates
Step 1: 29th March
Travel outside of our local areas will be allowed.
While it might be too early to start packing our swimsuits and SPF, we can venture a little further afield. Think picnics in the park with the rule of 6 or two households mixing, or a long-awaited tee off.
Step 2: 12th April*
Outdoor hospitality and attractions can open and self-catering holidays and minimal domestic travel allowed.
April 2020 was the fifth warmest April on record for the Met Office. Let's hope that this year we can see some of that glorious British sun, and less of those April showers. In mid April, we can expect to be making plans for the reopening of our UK & Ireland Aspire and Club Aspire Lounges. While international travel will still be on hiatus, we can expect to hear on this soon, as the Government's review into restarting foreign travel will conclude on 12th April 2021.
Step 3: 17th May*
Indoor hospitality and entertainment to reopen, and the big one - International travel allowed (subject to review).
Fingers crossed all goes to plan, we can look forward to jetting off in late Spring to early Summer. While it might seem a little far away now, it'll be here before we know it and our well-deserved breaks will be in the not-too-distant future.
Step 4: 21st June*
Removal of all legal limits on social contact
And finally... concluding our roadmap, will be the final stage of the lifting of restrictions. Life events such as weddings will be without limits, we will be able to hit the dance floor and head to concerts and festivals here on British soil.
