News that rules on the further easing of lockdown restrictions from 19 July has been met with a mix of excitement and delight from those involved in the leisure sector, none more so than the team at the club and spa at Cadbury House in Congresbury.

It means those looking to enjoy a workout other than in their lounge, garage or bedroom will soon be able to visit their favourite gym where they will be able to enjoy a workout or class in the company of others!

In England, one of the main changes announced means it is no longer law for people to wear masks which for many people will be music to their ears.

However, the Prime Minister did stress that we all must still take responsibility and precautions to continually fight the effects of the pandemic.

Having opened back in April, Jason Eaton, general manager at the club and spa at Cadbury House has welcomed the latest easing of restrictions and is looking forward to welcoming back old and new members.

However, mirroring what the Prime Minister said, Jason and his team believe that keeping both staff and members safe still is the number one priority. And it's why many of the practices that have been put in place to counter the spread of the virus will remain in place, so that members and guests alike feel reassured everything has been done to safeguard their health and safety.

Jason said: “It’s great news that restrictions have been eased further however it’s important that all those who visit the club respect and understand that not everyone will feel comfortable about not wearing masks and that we all use common sense with regard to using the facilities.
