It’s Super Saturday: live updates on the reopening of Nottingham’s pubs, restaurants and hairdressers

Gedling police urge drinkers to “know their limits” as only a handful of pubs reopen

Only a handful of pubs will reopen their doors through the Gedling district today and local officials are urging drinkers to stay safe and know their limits.

To date, only 4 pubs in the Gedling district will reopen on Saturday 4th July in Arnold, Mapperley, Calverton and Gedling.

Inspector Chris Pearson, neighborhood police inspector responsible for local police in the Gedling district area, said: “We appreciate that some people will want to take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy a drink in the pub, especially after not being able to to do it for so long.

“While obviously we want people to have fun and have fun, we want them to do it safely and with respect for others.

“It is imperative that people remember that Coronavirus is still a serious health risk.

“As such, they must continue to follow government guidelines to mitigate the transmission of the virus, including social distancing, increased sanitation and staff instructions.

“We invite people to drink responsibly, follow established guidelines and maintain a safe environment for everyone.

“The vast majority of drinkers are responsible, but we know that some people will drink excessively and become vulnerable to harm or even cause harm to others.

“The key advice is to know your limits, plan your day and consider how to get home safely.

“Anti-social and criminal behavior is not acceptable and during the weekend Op Reacher agents and the Gedling neighborhood police team will focus on visiting authorized premises to discourage alcohol-related ailments.

“The teams will work with door supervisors and staff to ensure a secure reopening and the licensing agents will be on hand to support the team. “We will work closely with colleagues from the Gedling District Council, including CCTV operators, and the team will also focus on any driving offenses related to drinks / drugs.”
