COVID UPDATE | APRIL 2021

Under the current National Covid Guidelines, G!RO is now back open - and now our outdoor seating area is open!!

Our opening hours are 8am - 3pm, and we can happily invite you sit, relax in our Garden and enjoy some of your G!RO favourites; the finest Workshop Coffee brews, delicious cakes from our local bakers, freshly baked pastries and homemade sandwiches for you to grab and enjoy on the go! Our small way of helping you all navigate these tumultuous times… Social distancing is in effect so please be sure to be safe and courteous to those around you.

Whilst we are very pleased to bring you this news, we are also keen to stress the importance of having your cooperation and support in doing this, so that us reopening, can be a purely positive force for you guys, our wonderful community! We ask of you all the following:

- All customers bring and wear a mask & adhere to social distancing rules and remain 2m away from others at all times

- Use the hand sanitizer provided and refrain from gathering out the front of the shop ,unless queuing to order or waiting for your takeaway.

- We have clear instructions both in and outside the cafe regarding the rules and ask that you follow these rules when visiting us, as well as respecting the staff who will be actively managing this on a daily basis, to ensure the safety of both themselves and everyone who visits.

-Once you have your coffee and treats, we ask that you move along and allow the next customers to queue and wait for their items safely, and remind you not to block the pavements.

- As the weather is improving, and we are seeing more of you stopping by the cafe, we have brought on extra members of staff to ensure that your orders are being dealt with as quickly as possible, and also to remind you not to block the pathways. Please understand this is for your safety and the safety of other customers and passers-by.

We are excited to be back open, to see your (masked) faces and to invite you to join us in out garden! We encourage you to be vigilant to your own safety and the safety of others around you, as we all navigate this unprecedented situation and follow all the guidelines in place for the benefit of everyone.

Here at G!RO we continue to share our ways of beating the global pandemic and keeping morale high! Jamie tells us how his year sampling a new style of riding on his Downrock has been a godsend in this unprecedented year!

Wow! It’s been nearly a year since that giant box, containing my new favourite bike arrived! It was March 2020, things were starting to head south globally and the UK was a few short days away from Lockdown 1.0, but spirits were high as me and head mechanic Danny tore into the box containing all the parts, and the beautiful Downrock frame Curve had just shipped us.
