For the first time in months, pints are drawn and hair is cut at businesses in the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area.
The huge changes are relieving local businesses that have seen their revenues dry up in the past three months and are arriving just in time for the peak visitor season.
However, they were only allowed to open their doors once more after making changes to ensure the safety of customers and staff with hygiene and social distancing rules to be observed.
With a buzz growing as things slowly return to a kind of normalcy, the North East Lincolnshire Council has urged people to stay safe and behave responsibly.
Council chief Philip Jackson said people should use common sense when traveling to Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
“While we want everyone to have a good time, we need people to act responsibly. If you visit bars and pubs this weekend, drink reasonably and plan your trip and how you are going to get home, “he said. .
“And for your own safety, if you come to a site and see that social distancing is not possible, think about whether this pint is really worth it. ”
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson told people not to “blow” progress in fighting the spread of the disease during the shutdown as he rolled out the government’s new slogan “Take advantage of the summer safely “.
We will visit the region to see how businesses are progressing throughout the day while people are enjoying a socially distant return to their favorite places.
