Festival Leisure Park, Basildon has been awarded the Visit England “We’re Good To Go” industry standard and consumer mark, recognising businesses adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance around COVID-19.
The “We’re Good to Go” stamp of approval reassures guests that the popular leisure destination is safe, seeing Festival Leisure Park carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment, and that all necessary safety measures have been taken to support social distancing and maintain cleanliness.
Matthew Chambers, centre manager at Festival Leisure Park said, “We’re thrilled to announce we’ve been awarded the “We’re Good To Go” official rubber stamp here at Festival Leisure Park, reassuring visitors the centre adheres to Government and public health guidance surrounding COVID-19. I’d like to thank all members of staff at the park for their continued hard work in making sure Festival Leisure Park continues to remain safe to the local Basildon community.”
The scheme has been developed in partnership with Visit England, Tourism Northern Ireland, VisitScotland and Visit Wales to ensure a standard-led approach across the UK with input from more than 40 industry bodies.
Alongside the industry standard, Visit Britain has also launched a ‘Know Before You Go’ public information campaign to reassure visitors as restrictions are lifted by checking about what it is safe to do and when and sign-posting to information about destinations and available services before travelling.
