Boris’s 4 step Roadmap will potentially allow us to open under step 2 on Monday 12th April, subject to data assessments being satisfactory. We’re looking forward to getting you freshly trimmed in time for Spring.
Implementing this plan requires the Government to be guided by data, not dates, so that they do not risk a surge in infections that would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS. For that reason, all the dates in the roadmap are indicative and subject to change. There will be a minimum of five weeks between each step: four weeks for the scientific data to reflect the changes in restrictions and to be analysed; followed by one week’s advance notice of the restrictions that will be eased.
Step 2 is currently booked marked to take effect no earlier than the 12th April, and will be subject to an assessment of the data against the four tests. If Step 2 is delayed, subsequent steps will need to be pushed back in order to maintain the necessary five week period to assess the impact of each step and to provide notice. We will keep you posted in the event that we are notified of any change in date.
We have provided a link covering steps 1- 4 here Publication of the Roadmap As we move through each of these phases in the roadmap, we must all remember that COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. For the moment we are going to have to keep living our lives differently for the next few months to keep ourselves and others safe. As such our PPE and social distancing policies will remain in place at the Valet until the data indicates otherwise, so we will carry on with ‘hands, face, space’ and comply with the COVID-Secure measures that we previously had in place at the salon. Staff will wear full PPE and customers will need to wear a face masks whilst in the salon and also sanitize their hands on entry. If we all continue to play our part, we will be that bit closer to a future that is more familiar and hopefully we can achieve this by the 21st June by all doing the right thing, please see COVID-safe guidelines for close contact businesses,
How we plan to manage the booking process

If we don’t reach you by telephone we will book you an appointment and will send confirmation of this by email and text message. If the time and date offered is not convenient for you, then please respond to the email and we will make alternative arrangements to suit your schedule.
Online booking will re-open on (Wednesday 24th February) at 11:00 am.

Please note we will be also accepting booking requests via our contact us page. Our online booking facility also allows you to pay for your appointment upfront, which will help minimise a build up of customers at our point of sale and will also allow you to exit the salon strait after we have completed your treatment.
