IT has been a long 10 weeks in lockdown.

And while social distancing will remain in place and many areas of society remain closed, some places are reopening.

Here is a list of what is reopening and when in Warrington over the next few weeks.

Monday, June 1 > Walton Hall

One of Warrington's most popular parks has been closed for the past couple of months.

Part of the estate has been used as a temporary mortuary during the outbreak.

But it reopens for exercise from Monday.

The play area, children's zoo and cafe remain closed.

The golf course remains closed for now too, although council officials are working to reopen soon.

Monday, June 1 > Ikea

Car dealerships are among the other firms which can reopen too.

The popular beauty spot will reopen from Tuesday.

Its opening hours will be as before lockdown, 1pm to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

The conservatories and cafe remain closed.

Volunteers are also urging visitors to keep to social distancing guidelines.

Tuesday, June 2 to Thursday, June 4 >McDonalds

Warrington Guardian: McDonalds in Tooting denied late license

The fast food giant has confirmed that every McDonalds drive-thru in the country will reopen by Thursday next week.

There will be a limited menu but after successful trials in the south east, the burger giant will reopen.

Monday, June 8 > Schools

Warrington Guardian: Social distancing measures as a child studies in school

Schools in Warrington are set to begin the return to normality.

Smaller classes sizes and fewer year groups will be operating to begin with.

The council will carry out a risk assessment on each school before opening agreed.

Monday, June 15 > Warrington Market

Warrington Guardian:

The opening of Warrington Market's new home in Time Square has been delayed.

It was due to open over Easter but that has been put off until now. The market has thrived in lockdown, remaining open for essential services and introducing click and collect.

On June 15, you can check out the new venue itself.

Bosses hope the new food court can open in July and will be following government guidance.

Monday, June 15 > Debenhams and other shops

Warrington Guardian:

All non-essential shops can open from June 15 as long as they meet government guidelines.

Debenhams, which made a u-turn and agreed to keep its Warrington store open earlier in May, will open its Golden Square store on this date.

Shorter hours and instore precautions will be introduced.

July > Cineworld in Warrington

Cineworld has only just opened when it shut in March.

But the chain says it is setting plans in place to open in July, if government guidance says it is safe.

New measures will be in place.

Odeon is yet to say when it will reopen, so Westbrook cinema goers will have to watch this space.
