Its was the Summer of 21

After months of being closed and working to strict guidelines we’re now slowly able to bring back some Valet favourites to the menu. Things are slowly starting to feel a bit normal again. The month of June is set to offer some highlights at our flagship store. Take a look below there’s so much going on!

 

The summer is finally here, the European cup kicks off this Friday 11th, there’s Royal Ascot from the 15th – 19th, and to round things off its the Valet 12th Anniversary on Thursday the 17th June. What with all the travel restrictions imposed, the great weather ahead and so much to do in London, why not just staycation right here in London town. Its been a long haul for most of us and with the decent vaccine roll out it’s high time we all started to feel good and enjoy what’s on offer right here on our door steps. What better month to pop in to your favourite salon for a spruce up with a glass of bubbly and watch some live sports action whilst getting pampered. We are also running our usual free lucky dip worth £300.00 up to Friday at close of business as we have done in the past with major international football tournaments. There will be 24 tickets available on a first come first served basis from this coming Wednesday 9th June. See further below what you could win. We have also introduced steam back on the menu, so why not give your face and beard the treat that it deserves. Read More

We’re back in the driving seat

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,
