Preston Marina has posted on Facebook that it is shutting it’s shop and takeaway food and drink service as a result of lockdown-3.Advertisement
The Beach Hut Cafe had continued to serve takeaway food and drink under tier-3 and tier-4 restrictions and was popular with walkers on the Docks.
But the Marina management said due to the health and safety risk to staff they had taken the decision to stop opening for takeaway services.
The new lockdown restrictions do not prohibit cafes from opening for takeaway.
Their shop was already temporarily closed due to tier-4 restrictions and orders are now only available by their website, email or Facebook.
They are currently awaiting guidance from their governing trade body but for now all boat movement and lifting operations are suspended.

They are also recommending that all semi-residential berth-holders seek alternative accommodation throughout the lockdown.
However, Preston Marina will still have caretaking staff on site 10am-3pm Monday to Saturday.
Lockdown-3 was announced by PM Boris Johnson last night (Monday 5 January).
