Among the measures being introduced in all its clubs are a new maximum capacity to allow for social distancing; markers on the floor will help keep people safe while queuing; a more frequent cleaning rota and sanitising stations available for use.

Some seats will be marked as ‘out of use’ to help with distancing and there will be group and individual seating areas to allow families and one household to play together.

Perspex screens have been installed at the reception, bar and bingo sales, as well as between machines and fixed gaming terminals.

As a thanks to local NHS workers for their tireless efforts during the pandemic, Buzz Bingo is also introducing a new feature in its Main Event games.

Peter Brigden, chief retail officer at Buzz Bingo, said: “It has been a long few months without seeing our lovely customers and we cannot wait to reopen our club doors on August 27.

"The club is at the heart of the community and offers an open and friendly space for members to be amongst friends while they enjoy a game of bingo or play slots.

“We want to reassure customers that their health and safety is our number one priority.
