For the time being, life is going to change for us all. Some of the places we’re used to going, the classes we take our kids to and many of the things we were looking forward to are closing their doors for now, or are going to start operating their businesses differently so that they can survive these tricky times. Our hearts go out to each and every business affected.
Here is a summary of the family-friendly businesses in and around York that are changing the way that they do things for the time being. We will keep updating the list until things go back to normal, so do check back and let us know of any updates you are aware of. In. the meantime, please do continue to support local businesses in any way that you can so that they make it through to the other side.
The children’s classes have had to adapt to the new situation, but they’ve done an amazing job with many of them going online. Take a look at these brilliant ways to keep your kids occupied.
