Saturday, 30th May 2020. 


“I welcome the gradual reopening of local Councils’ public facilities as Covid-19 restrictions ease from Monday June 1, 2020.


“However, I ask people to make the effort to observe social distancing and hygiene measures while accessing our much-loved libraries, art galleries and museums.


“This way we will play an important part in keeping our community safe and keeping our favourite places open.
