A PUB is closing after ‘a few locals have tested positive to the virus.’

The Willingdon pub has just posted the news.

It says: “I’m very sad and sorry to say that as of now we are closing down at the Wheatsheaf.

Staff and customers have been doing an amazing job with keeping each other safe.

It’s now been brought to my attention that a few locals have tested positive to the virus, some of us now have to isolate and the worry from staff and myself, I have decided to close.

It’s with a very heavy heart that all bookings are now cancelled… we wish you all a very happy and healthy Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as safe to do so.”
