DEPUTY Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism Dafydd Elis Thomas is reminding residents and visitors alike to enjoy what Wales has to offer safely as we approach the first weekend since indoor hospitality is open and with the good weather forecast.
Dafydd Elis Thomas said:
“We are now at the height of summer and with hospitality businesses able to open again, many people will be taking advantage of the good weather to visit Wales or explore their local area. After the difficulties for the tourism industry, this will be welcome for many.
If you are planning to explore and enjoy what Wales has to offer this weekend remember to do so safely. There are a few things which we can all do to help keep ourselves, our families and communities safe.
Plan ahead and check local arrangements such as parking facilities. If where you want to go is very busy think about an alternative which is quieter – there are plenty of places to choose from. You might discover something new.
Remember to maintain social distance, and keep two metres apart from others, including when outdoors and on the streets.
It’s great to see that most tourist businesses are now open and we all have a part to play in keeping everyone safe, and ensuring our restaurants, pubs, cafes and attractions can remain open.
We can enjoy the wonderful countryside and attractions here in Wales over the summer. Let’s all do so safely.”
Visit Wales is encouraging visitors to make a pledge to care for each other and the place we call home.
