Buzz Bingo Leeds in Stonebridge Mills has reopened with these safety measures
Buzz Bingo Leeds has reopened with a series of safety measures in place to protect customers and staff.
The Leeds club, in Stonebridge Mills, off Stonebridge Lane, reopened for the first time since March on Thursday.
As a thank you to NHS workers during the pandemic, 5 pence from the sale of every paper book or electronic touchpad package will be donated to the NHS.
Measures that have been rolled out at Buzz Bingo Leeds include limiting capacity to aid social distancing, perspex screens throughout the building, fewer seats in use, cleaning stations and changes to the menu.
The Buzz Buddies scheme, which offered support to elderly and vulnerable customers in lockdown, is also being extended.
Peter Brigden, chief retail officer at Buzz Bingo, said: “It has been a long few months without seeing our lovely customers and we cannot wait to reopen our club doors this August.
"The clubs are at the heart of the community and offer an open and friendly space for members to be amongst friends while they enjoy a game of bingo or play slots.
“We want to reassure customers that their health and safety is our number one priority.
"We’ve spent the last few months eagerly preparing for their return and putting all the necessary measures in place to keep them safe.
"Our colleagues have been missing their regular players and are really looking forward to welcoming them back – as well as new players who might want to try something new.”
