BUSINESSES in Leigh have been reacting to the announcement of the roadmap out of lockdown.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the four-step roadmap yesterday, providing key tests over vaccines and the virus are met.

Outdoor hospitality and hairdressers are among businesses which can return on April 12, with a full reopening of hospitality from May 17.

Here is how some businesses in Leigh have reacted.

  • Leigh Tackle

Please Read❤️❤️❤️ We’ve had a lot of customers asking when we will be open as usual again, following Boris’s discussions this afternoon it’s looking like 12th April will be the date when non-essential retailers can open their doors again. We cannot wait to invite you all back into the shop, we really do miss you all - the banter, the brews, the moaning about bad pegs 🤣🤣 Hopefully this will be the final lockdown and we can return to normality once and for all ❤️ Again thank you for your continued support during these crazy times! We’ll see you all soon! #leightackle #ltbtakeover #theoneandonly #aintnostoppingusnow

  • Alison Elizabeth Hair Salon

So we finally have some news12th April at the earliest however this maybe possibly could be pushed back. So for now if anyone wanting an appointment with myself, danielle or Kimberly can keep commenting on our prior post and I will start working my way through and booking you all in as soon as we have confirmation. Please also be aware we may have to re skin test all clients due to the rising numbers of people now becoming allergic to products since having covid I know this is an inconvenience to most of you but I will always put your health first Alison x
