SCOTLAND: it was great to receive the green light to reopen on Monday. Delighted though I and members are, I am still left with the sense that this was completely unnecessary. Members’ businesses have been safe to open for months.
Still all members in all parts of the UK are now open for business which is great. I hope every single member can at least salvage something from this year. I know it will be incredibly tough but I feel we are now looking forward which feels good.
