Message from Mayor of Castle Point Councillor Colin Riley

From July 4th new changes on lockdown come into place. Pubs, bars and restaurants are able to open subject to government guidelines.

We want our residents to enjoy themselves but it is important we all act responsibly.  

  • Stay alert and stay safe to help prevent spreading the virus.
  • Keep a safe distance from others  and continue to wash your hands regularly.

If you do go to the  pub, have fun but be sensible;show respect for others and do not do anything that puts you or other people at risk.
