    Karen Jones: Why is it so important that hospitality wholeheartedly supports NHS Test and Trace?


    So it’s a Bank Holiday weekend, pay day for many and the last EOTHO on Bank Holiday Monday. Many of our restaurants and pubs across the UK will be very busy and it seems an opportune moment to remind ourselves of the vital importance of all our places fully supporting NHS Test and Trace. Why is it so important that hospitality wholeheartedly supports NHS Test and Trace? Because hospitality offers safe spaces for people to enjoy being with friends and family. Because we are often at the centre of our communities and high streets. We have a real responsibility to keep our customers, our teams and our communities safe and well. NHS Test and Trace is a powerful way to do just that: collecting and providing the information to help break the chain of transmission and control the virus.

    S.A. Brain CEO Alistair Darby: Industry must prove it’s not 'dirty, germ-ridden'


    In classing hospitality behind non-essential retail in its reopening strategy, the Government has enabled the idea that pubs and restaurants are high-risk spaces to return to, S.A. Brain CEO Alistair Darby has said. Speaking as part of MCA’s The Conversation, Darby shared his frustration that delaying the sector’s reopening – hospitality spaces in Wales are still prohibited from opening inside until 3 August – has “created the idea in many people’s minds that pubs and restaurants are dangerous places to go.”

    Big fat stats put the obesity debate back on the menu


    There are times everyone needs a juicy bacon cheeseburger, a big portion of chips, a three piece KFC, a pepperoni pizza, lots of chocolate, a few scoops of ice cream or some crisps. Not altogether obviously, that would be far too delicious. But individually, and as an occasional treat, where’s the harm? The trouble is the UK has long suffered from a lack of restraint. Couple that with our love of takeaways and a national diet rooted in stodgy classics and we have reached a point where the government estimates that 63% of adults in England are overweight or obese. It says one in three kids leaves primary school overweight or obese. Obesity related illness costs the NHS over £6bn every year. Those are big fat stats.

    Editor’s Opinion: Hang tight and plan your return


    The coronavirus continues to wreak havoc. It’s claimed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world and numbers continue to rise. As dreadful as that is, the long term socio-economic impact is more disturbing. The virus has created a level of disruption to health, society, and the economy that’s never happened before, outside of wartime. And while there is plenty of speculation on how life in general may get back to normal post-lockdown, with vaguely optimistic or pessimistic dates floating around, there is no clarity on how or when this might end.
