Non-Essential Businesses Open On Yorkshire Coast

Many non-essential businesses have re-opened on the Yorkshire Coast today.

It is part of Government measures to ease the lockdown.

Shops can welcome back customers  as long as they ensure social distancing.

One of those is The Art Room on Falsgrave in Scarborough.

The business has also moved into a bigger premises due to demand.

Delia Prudence is from there and said:

"We've got all the marks in place. We can have two, maybe three, in the shop comfortably. 

But we also have all the screens up and all the safety measures are in. We have a workshop area that's totally separate now, but that's not working now because of the procedures at the moment.

The shop is already open, we have some nice chandeliers, it looks really nice.

Three of us have spent the last three weeks doing it all ourselves. 

We're excited and glad but also a little bit anxious. I can understand people being a bit nervous, but we'll be there for them."

Delia has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:

Meanwhile, KD Recruitment, based in Scarborough, were forced to close for a number of weeks during lockdown, but the business is emerging stronger as they launch their IT, Construction and Engineering divisions across North and East Yorkshire this month.

Kelly Dunn, its founder and Managing Director, said:

“After 5 weeks of being closed, I am pleased to say that KD Recruitment is back open and with even more services than before. We have been working closely with a number of clients over the last few years who have asked if we could support their IT, Construction and Engineering divisions too. I am so happy to announce we can now support them 100%!”

When lockdown happened, it was a difficult time for everyone. I had to furlough my staff and tried to keep going for the first few weeks. However, as our clients were no longer recruiting due to the pandemic, I had to make the difficult decision to furlough myself and temporarily close the business. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I knew that it was the best thing to do at that stage.”

KD Recruitment opened in September 2017 recruiting for all businesses and organisations across the North and East Yorkshire region.
