COVID UPDATE – 1 NOVEMBER 2020
As you already know, England will be locking down for a month from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December 2020 inclusive.
Unfortunately this means the KLR's 2020 standard season comes to an abrupt, premature end and we will be closing our doors to the public on the evening of Sunday 1 November. After this time, ALL our facilities will be closed, including the playgrounds.
If you had tickets booked for a standard day or an afternoon tea experience on 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 or 22 November, we'll be in touch shortly to discuss your options. We respectfully request that you await contact from us as we have a lot to work through and additional phone calls, emails and messages simply add to the burden on our small team.
Of course, this lockdown also affects the scheduled start of our Santa Specials which were due to begin on 28-29 November and now cannot. If you have tickets booked for the Santa Specials on 28-29 November, we'll be in touch shortly to discuss your options. Again, we respectfully request that you await contact from us as we have a lot to work through and additional phone calls, emails and messages simply add to the burden on our small team who are working tirelessly to find the best way forward.
At the moment, we intend to re-open on Saturday 5 December and run the December Santa Specials as scheduled unless further Government intervention makes it impossible. We will, of course, review this decision as and when any further measures are announced.
This is a devastating blow for the KLR, and many other small businesses, for whom the festive period is critical. All we can ask now is that our supporters play their part in making this lockdown successful in lowering the COVID transmission rates so that we can - hopefully! - enjoy some celebrations this Christmas.Stay safe, folks!
