Bondholder tourism and hospitality businesses are re-opening their doors as restrictions are lifted, with several awarded the new industry standard to reassure customers they are safe.

VisitEngland, in partnership with VisitBritain, has launched the UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to provide a ring of confidence for tourism and hospitality businesses. The “We’re Good To Go” industry standard and supporting mark means businesses can demonstrate they are adhering to government and public health guidance, have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment, and checked they have the required processes in place before they reopen. The scheme is free to join and open to all businesses across the industry.

A number of Derby businesses have already signed up and have been successfully accredited with the standard, including Bondholders Derby Museum and Art Gallery and Derby Cathedral.

Tony Butler, Executive Director of Derby Museums commented: “Museums are experts in caring for things and the safety of our visitors and staff is no exception. We have taken very thorough steps to ensure the Museum and Art Gallery complies with the Government’s recommended safety guidelines, and we hope that these new measures will put our visitors at ease and make their experience as enjoyable as possible as we welcome everyone back.”

The Dean of Derby, the Very Revd Dr Peter Robinson, said: “Derby Cathedral is delighted to have the Good to Go Standard ahead of opening the doors for individual prayer on Wednesday 8th July at 11:00am. Our ‘what to expect’ video can be viewed on I look forward to welcoming people into the building once again!”

Other Bondholders in the tourism and hospitality sector who are re-opening include: Anoki, Annie’s Burger Shack, BEAR, Darley Abbey Wines, Lotus Indian Kitchen, Mercia Marina, Morley Hayes and Pentahotel Derby.
