A HAMPSHIRE member of parliament has welcomed the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Gosport MP, Caroline Dinenage, has welcomed the further easing of lockdown measures following a Government announcement on July 9.

Caroline has corresponded with many local salon-owners, tattooists and local gyms and gym-goers, and raised their concerns direct with Ministers on in recent weeks.

This will be welcome news for many fantastic businesses in the Gosport Constituency, including Fitness24 Gym who ran a campaign for a date to open.

Caroline said: “This is such welcome news for many business owners across the Gosport Constituency.

"I have spoken to many salon owners, tattooists, gyms and their customers in recent weeks who were so eager to see a date for reopening announced and I raised these concerns with Ministers.

"Today’s announcement will be hugely welcome, not only for the owners and staff of our fantastic local businesses, but for the health and well-being of many across the Gosport Constituency!”
