This was the week when the lockdown was relaxed, with an easing of the 2m rule. Here’s what we know.

From 4th July in England, pubs, restaurants, hotels and hairdressers can reopen. Announcing the relaxation of lockdown rules, the Prime Minister said people should stay at least 2m apart, but follow a “one metre plus” rule where that wasn’t possible.

Also opening from 4th July are hotels, holiday apartments, campsites and caravan parks but shared facilities will need to be cleaned properly. Theatres and music halls can reopen, but they won’t be able to hold live performances.

Weddings will be allowed to have up to 30 attendees, and places of worship will be allowed to hold services, but singing will be banned.

For now, indoor gyms, swimming pools, nail bars and indoor play areas will stay closed.

Another easing of the lockdown measures from 4th July means two households can meet indoors or outdoors, and also stay overnight, all while maintaining social distancing.

These steps are however reversible, with the possibility raised for local or indeed national lockdowns if there’s a surge in cases.

We’re looking forward to the next raft of businesses reopening in Cranleigh, especially the pubs! Do share your business news with the Destination Cranleigh team by email to, and we can share your stories on the website and in future episodes of Cranleigh Community Radio.
