BINGO fans are being asked to get their dabbers at the ready to prepare for the reopening of a hall in Warrington.

Buzz Bingo has confirmed that its Cockhedge Shopping Centre bingo hall will be reopening its doors to customers once more on Monday.

The popular hall and meeting place has been closed for more than four months due to the coronavirus lockdown.

But the business is keen to make up for lost time with an enticing offer to tempt people back for a game of bingo.

A free cup of tea or coffee and a sausage or bacon breakfast roll will be available to customers between 10am and 11am as a welcome back gift.

Peter Brigden, chief retail officer at Buzz Bingo, said: “Customer safety is always our first and foremost priority.

“As the majority of our customers have not been able to properly visit some of our clubs for more than a year, we want them to feel completely safe now that it is possible for them to do so

“We are delighted to celebrate their return with a free cuppa and a breakfast roll so they can reunite with friends and have a good chinwag before getting stuck into a game of bingo.”

The hall will have extensive health and safety measures in place, including a maximum capacity, Perspex screens and floor markers to enable social distancing.

Research conducted by Buzz Bingo has revealed that four in 10 pensioners have not seen or socialised with friends face-to-face for more than 10 months.

This is why it is excited to welcome them back to the bingo hall, especially considering that 63 per cent of pensioners surveyed said they feel much safer now people have had the vaccine.
