What to expect as Planet Funland opens at Seaton Carew with Covid-19 safety measures in place
A popular funfair has opened in Seaton Carew with ‘Covid-secure’ guidelines firmly in place to keep families and staff safe.
Planet Funland is now welcoming customers and hopes to bring some fun back to Hartlepool after weeks of lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
At the time, a spokeswoman for the fair explained that an opening date would only be announced once they were satisfied by the measures.
She told the Mail: “We are currently setting up at Seaton and an opening date will only be announced once we are satisfied that all safety measures in relation with Government guidelines regarding Covid-19 are in place.”
Now, those measures are in place with all rides being cleaned before and area each use and a one-way system installed for each attraction.
Protective equipment include face shields, masks and gloves are also available for anyone who may wish to wear it.
Organisers have installed floor markings and barriers throughout the fairground to help maintain social distancing measures.
Hand sanitisation stations are also in place in various areas of the fair, with bosses encouraging everyone to use them as often as they can.
The opening comes as the Government is set to introduce the mandatory wearing of face masks and coverings in shops from Friday, July 24 – with those who fail to comply facing fines of up to £100.
