Coronavirus Update - 25th February 2021
The UK Government has now released its roadmap for easing restrictions in England which can be read in full here
. Under the timeline outlined in the roadmap, bingo clubs will reopen in Stage 3 which is currently scheduled for 17th May.
We recognised that this is later than many operators had hoped for. To address this The Bingo Association will continue to lobby the Government throughout the next few months.
Firstly, we will continue to emphasise the fact that bingo clubs are Covid-secure, due to our unique nature, and that many of our customers have already received their first vaccination.
Secondly, if it is to be May 17th, we will be making the case for much-needed discretionary funding comparable to other sectors, that will allow clubs to stay afloat until May 17th.
In Scotland and Wales we will be making similar appeals to the devolved Governments
Rest assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure that the bingo industry is able to emerge from crisis.
