Time to switch your machines on!

All machines are allowed to be switched on today confirmed by John White at BACTA, our trade body.

As previously mentioned, some local authorities in England, have been saying amusement machines cannot be switched on in pubs from May 17th. This is not true.
DCMS have clarified the matter.  It refers to our Covid secure guidelines on managing machines in pubs, agreed with UK Hospitality and the British Beer and Pub Association.  These have not changed since last Summer.

I have also spoken with UK Hospitality and they have now included a Question and Answer in their official guidance (page 15) that makes it clear that machines can be switched on.  Here is a link. https://www.ukhospitality.org.uk/page/FAQs

Everyone at Ivor Thomas wishes all our friends and customers the very best of luck restarting their business indoors today on the road to a full recovery.
