Our next tour was due to be held on SATURDAY 12TH December but due to the latest highly restrictive Tier 2 regulations, where we are unable allow mixed groups of up to 6 people inside, we do not feel that we can legally offer this tour. The question of how and if we are supposed to police illegally mixed groups is too worrying to risk a £10,000 fine. It is all well and good coming up with ridiculous rules limiting events like this while 350 people shop in Tescos but if it continues, sadly it will become unviable to operate. The measures we have put in place far exceed what is required but this it to no avail.
DURING THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES, WE ASK YOU TO WORK WITH US TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO OFFER OUR WONDERFUL EVENTS.
RULES ARE CHANGING WEEKLY AND WHEN PUBLISHED ARE OFTEN UN-CLEAR. WE HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH MP'S, COUNCILLORS, HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND OUR INSURANCE, TO ENSURE OUR EVENTS CAN GO AHEAD.
WE HAVE TAKEN MEASURES TO ENSURE OUR VENUE IS COVID SECURE, WITH EXTRA CLEANING, SANITATION POINTS AROUND THE VENUE, ALL VISITORS HAVE THIER TEMPERATURE CHECKED, WE USE THE NHS TRACK AND TRACE SYSTEM, WE MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING AND WE POLITELY REQUEST ALL VISITORS TO WEAR A FACE COVERING, WASH YOUR HANDS AND ACCEPT THAT SAFETY OF OUR STAFF AND CUSTOMERS MUST COME BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE, POSSIBLY TO THE DETRIMENT OF YOUR EVENT. WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO ENSURE YOUR TIME SPENT IN OUR PRISON IS SAFE AND FUN.
MONIES FOR TICKETS IS HELD UNTIL YOUR EVENT HAS PASSED ENSURING WE CAN REFUND YOU IF FURTHER RESTRICTIONS ARE IMPOSED.
WITHOUT YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT, WE CAN'T DO WHAT WE DO, AND WE ARE TRULY THANKFUL FOR IT.
STAY SAFE, ANDY, SIMON, MARTYN AND ALL THE OTHER STAFF AND HELPERS AT GLOUCESTER PRISON
