Pubs and hairdressers in Oswestry are starting to open their doors on 'Super Saturday' as lockdown rules are eased in England.

Many local businesses have taken to social media to let people know when they're opening - and how they will maintain social distancing.

Boyz II Men Barbers, in a post on Facebook, said: "The wait is finally over! See you all later. Please remember, if you are not well you can change your appointment for another time."

The Sweeney hotel has wished luck to all of the businesses opening up their doors again today and has urged people to follow coronavirus guidelines. "The very best of luck today to Weston Village Clubhouse, Stonehouse Brewery, Townhouse Oswestry, Wilsons Oswestry, Wynnstay Hotel, The Bailey Head, The Oak Inn and every other hospitality venue opening up after 106 days.

"To everyone who supports us all today please remember to follow the safety guidelines - we want all our guests to stay safe - we want our staff to say safe. People's health and people's livelihoods depend on everyone being sensible."

The Townhouse said: "Back to it today after three months in lockdown! Our team are ready to go and we can’t wait for you all to come and join us in the Arbour. Go out, enjoy a drink and some food but please remember this is a new normal for us all in hospitality as well as customers. Be patient and be kind. We can’t wait to see you!"

The Cemist has also to make sure they respect government guidelines but also says it is "ready for the madness to start".

"Good luck to all our friends and everyone opening up their business today after 106 days of not trading. Hopefully it won’t be much longer for everyone else. Never did we believe we would be closed for this long! Please respect and adhere to the guidelines each venue has in place. We have reached capacity from 5pm this evening and only have limited spaces from 9am today. We are ready for the madness to start," a Facebook post said.

Pubs will be using 'contact tracing', meaning they will take the contact details of visitors on entry.

These details will be kept for 28 days so that the pub can contact the visitors in the event of someone having Covid-19 at the venue.

Although all the pubs in town are following their own interpretation of the new rules, most are following a basic guidelines, including restriction service from the bar and introducing table service, booking in advance and implementing social distancing between tables.
