Local pubs in Beverley are urging the community to support them. They were dealt a real blow by the government in their latest briefing.
Pubs in Beverley have already been stepping up their measures to help combat the spread of Coronavirus. Many have increased their cleaning programme regularly sanitising surfaces and door handles.
They are also ensuring there is plenty of soap so customers using the venue can wash their hands, advice issues by the NHS.
“But if you feel ok please come and support all of us. People can use contactless and we are also working hard to make it as clean and safe as we possibly can.”
Mr Slinger was expecting what would be one of his busiest weekends as it is Mothering Sunday. However, the spread of Coronavirus and the announcement by the government is having an impact.
“If people are looking to hold private small gatherings with family members this is something we can offer. At the Tiger, we have plenty of space and rooms to cope.”

Mr Slinger hopes people in the town who do venture out think about where they spend their money, he said;
“I would like to urge anyone who does go out take an extra moment to think about what places they visit. Now more than ever it is important they support the independent businesses.”
“We have a number of these in Beverley, be they retail shops, cafes or pubs. Right now we certainly need the community to be on our side.”
