It became mandatory for customers to wear a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England on Friday 24 July. Shops are expected to encourage compliance with the law (as they would do more generally) and can refuse you entry or service if you are not wearing a mask. The police may issue a fine of up to £100 to anyone failing to comply with this new law.
As a reminder, you will see new signage at our door. If you forget your mask, we’ll have some disposable ones available (free of charge) but these are in short supply. We also have a few fabric masks for sale in the shop. This is going to be difficult for all of us to get used to so please be patient and considerate to our staff, volunteers and other customers!
