East Riding of Yorkshire Council has offered further advice to those thinking of visiting the coast and Local Nature Reserves in the coming days over the Bank Holiday weekend and beyond.

Councillor Richard Burton, leader of the council, said : “Anyone intending to come and visit the East Riding coast this weekend or our Local Nature Reserves must stay alert and observe social distancing at all times.  I ask them to be respectful of our local communities, and to be responsible in their actions. Our local residents need space as well, and local shops are intended for essential purchases by local people.

“I must stress again that all tourism businesses like hotels, guest houses and most restaurants and cafes remain closed. Caravan sites are of course also still closed. Visitors should be aware that a trip to the coast this weekend and next week will not offer the usual facilities.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors in the future when all our facilities will be open again, and of course I would remind people that the beauty of the East Riding coast and our Local Nature Reserves will still be there in time to come, for people to enjoy.”
