With consumers being encouraged to book UK holidays, the staycation boom is set to continue into summer and autumn 2021 and the CountyClean Group is here to help the hospitality and tourism sector!
Step 2 of the Covid-19 roadmap went ahead earlier this week, successfully allowing most outdoor attractions and settings including outdoor hospitality venues, zoos, theme parks and drive-in cinemas to reopen. Self-contained accommodations such as campsites and holiday lets have reopened to households where facilities are not shared.
Providing that the vaccine rollout remains successful and cases remain low, step 3 of the roadmap is set to commence no earlier than 17th May where indoor hospitality will reopen, as well as the rest of the accommodation sector, which includes; hotels, hostels and B&B’s.
Marloes De Vries, Associate Director of Travel at Mintel said: “demand for staycations during the summer period is expected to exceed pre-Covid-19 levels and could well reach a new 10-year record due to pent-up demand following disrupted travel plans.”
Limited options to travel overseas is likely to have helped boost the desire to explore sights closer to home or to discover what is on our own doorstep. We are very lucky to be surrounded by an ample amount of beautiful holiday destinations in the South and South East of the UK and want to help business owners out where we can with tips and advice!
Our Tips & Advice
At facilities not connected to the mains sewers, we highly advise keeping a close eye on your sewage system to avoid costly breakdowns from increased usage and surges. We also advise owners of caravan parks and campsites to hand out flyers to residents and customers with a reminder to only flush the ‘3P’s’ (Pee, Poo & Paper)!
Food service establishments can ensure their business is kept running by fitting grease management systems, installing strainers on plug holes, making sure new and existing staff are trained regularly, and by scraping all waste from plates and utensils into a food waste bin. Your FOG (fat, oil and grease) management system should be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Ensure your external drainage is kept free of blockages by keeping areas around aco and gully grates clean and free of debris including leaves, dirt and rubbish.
