In normal circumstances, Aldeburgh would be now be preparing for traditionally one of the busiest weekends of the year, welcoming visitors from near and far, who make a considerable and valued contribution to the town’s economy. However, this year is very different.
Following on from the government’s guidance on social distancing, issued on 22 March 2020 in relation to COVID-19, people should avoid travelling unless it is essential.
Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People must remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.
