Super Saturday launches hospitality sector into an essential phase for Safety and Sanitisation

8 July 2020, Pubs & Bars

Saturday 4th July was a momentous day for the hospitality sector as ‘Super Saturday’ benchmarked the welcome reopening of pubs, bars and restaurants across England. After an unpredictable and unsettling time for the industry, the pandemic we’ve been quarantined in for the last 3 months has presented all kinds of challenges for businesses in the hospitality sector.

Sanitisation is essential to preventing the spread

As we move forward and businesses begin to reopen to the public, it is vital  a clear message of safety and cleanliness is prominent in every outlet to ensure and promote measures are in place to provide a clear message of safety and protection for staff and customers in every outlet, as well as crucially, doing everything we can to prevent a second wave of the virus.

We attended the Sun Inn in Blackpool, delivering our Smart Shield COVID-19 Antiviral Sanitising Service in the premises to create a safe environment for the return of their customers. Dave Wise, Landlord of the Sun Inn said “It was a no brainer for us to sanitise the premises ahead of our reopening. The safety and wellbeing of our patrons and staff is our priority and we want to offer customers the safest environment possible to return to.”

Another premises sanitised with Smart Shield last week in preparation for their reopening Super Saturday was Tong Park Cricket Club in Esholt. Their whole cricket club including bar areas and toilets are fully sanitised and COVID-19 free thanks to our Smart Shield Sanitisation Service.
