As a result of a new Covid variant that has been identified, at 4am today UK government introduced new rules requiring face masks to be worn in shops, banks, post offices, hairdressers etc (but not hospitality venues). Information about this can be found by clicking here.

To support your communications, we have created some Christmas-themed social media images that you are welcome to save and use. We have a series of ‘square images’ perfect for Instagram and Facebook – and they can be used in ‘twos’ with the final ‘Love Leam’ image.
We also have ‘rectangle’ images perfect for Twitter or Facebook. Finally, we have some ‘we’re masking nicely’ and ‘endgame’ images and posters available offering an additional dash of creativity and kindness. Some examples are provided below.
These can all be downloaded from our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/BIDLeamington. Please get in touch if you can not access these and we can email them to you.

We also have posters that you can display in your business, so please get in touch with us at info@bidleamington.com if you would like one of these.

 

So how are we doing locally? … 

Since restrictions were lifted in July we have been closely monitoring local Covid rates. At that time (23rd July) local cases were 585.7 cases per 100,000 people which was comparatively quite high. Since then numbers have fluctuated as follows:

  • July 23rd – 585.7 cases per 100,000 people
  • August 20th – 283.6 per cases per 100,000 people
  • September 24th – 311.2 cases per 100,000 people
  • October 22nd – 624.5 cases per 100,000 people
  • November 19th – 319.5 cases per 100,000 cases people
  • November 26th – 384.4 cases per 100,000 people

These figures are drawn from regular updates we receive from Warwick Drictick Council and can be verified here: https://www.warwickdc.gov.uk/news/archive.

Alongside this, the Local Authority and other organizations have been proactive in encouraging people to get vaccinated and offering associated services. Thanks to the great work of our local health service providers and volunteers several walk-in clinics are available. For example, we can now ‘grab a jab’ this weekend at:

  • Warwick – Northgate House
    Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 November, 10am-4pm
  • Kenilworth – Former Ramada Hotel
    Sunday 28 November, 10am-2pm
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any information or advice. As well as up-to-date Covid information we are closely monitoring footfall and our door is always open. Please also stay in touch so you can get involved in our upcoming Christmas promotions.
Best wishes over the coming weeks,
