I do want to say thank you to the Restaurant Association and please pass this on to whoever needs to hear it, the updates have been fantastic and my saviour this past few weeks. They have been so clear and informative all the way through and have really taken the pressure off in knowing how we should be operating, without having to go and look through the government pages. I haven’t fully utilised all that the restaurant association has to offer yet, but I feel I have had my money’s worth just through the daily updates -so thank you!!! ”
