Llangollen gradually comes back to life as Covid-19 lockdown eases

* Castle Street is gradually coming back to life as lockdown eases.

Signs that Llangollen is slowly emerging from the coronavirus lockdown came this morning with the re-opening of non-essential shops in the town centre.

The Welsh Government ruled last week that retailers are able to resume trading if they can take all reasonable measures to comply with physical distancing rules to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and protect their staff and shoppers.

The five mile 'stay local' advice remains in place for the moment.

At the next review on July 9, the Welsh Government is due to consider a range of specific options for opening personal care services, such as hairdressing and beauty, by appointment.
Hairdressers asked to use next three weeks to prepare to open.
Open for business this morning in Castle Street were the Ragamuffin boutique, Pro-Adventure outdoor store, Occasions, Lily Rose Interiors, estate agents Bowen Son and Watson, Solitaire jewellers and Ladbrokes betting office.
In nearby Oak Street the Shop Around the Corner and Mystic Dragon were ready for their first customers in months.
In the alley by the side of Solitaire, Hands Across Time was open and just across the other side of Castle Street in Dee Lane Harley’s Vintage Boutique was getting ready to start trading again.
Pubs and restaurants remain closed, although a number are doing takeaway-only business, including Riverbanc which was open this morning in Bridge Street.  


* Lake the Osteopath says it will be back to clinic in the Verve from 6th July. 

It says: "The new Covid19 protocols require the case history to be taken in advance (video/telephone), so that risks of contracting the virus are reduced. Only the treatment will be face-to-face. Why not book your initial appointment for next week, ready for treatment the week after? See or telephone Lake on 07787 118119 to book or for more info."
