GB: BALPPA Demonstrates for Reopening of Indoor FEC’s

During this week, the British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions (BALPPA) demonstrated for the reopening of indoor FEC’s on Parlimant Square in London. BALLPA claims in a survey that most FEC’s are already facing permanent closure without the government’s support. Dozen mascots representing indoor play areas, operators, staff and families got together to show the urgency of this matter.

“Last week the indoor play industry was dealt the latest devastating blow in the COVID-19 crisis when they were once again totally overlooked in the government’s re-opening plans,” said Paul Kelly, BALPPA chief executive and adds: “The indoor play sector already has COVID-secure guidelines signed off by the Health & Safety Executive, Public Health England and the Government. All they’re asking for is for a clear timetable of when they can re-open.” (eap)
