Thank you so much to all who have visited FarGo in person or continued to support our independent businesses online these past few weeks.
For week commencing 13th July, the majority of businesses will be open again from Thursday – Sunday, 11am – 4pm. Food and drink business Dirty Kitch, Gourmet Food Kitchen, Choc “n” Roll, Leave it to Esmie and Bubble Boba – Bubble Tea, Milkshake & Waffles are still open for takeaway, please check their individual social media pages for the latest updates.
As the beauty industry starts to reopen, we’re thrilled to see Dashing Blades Barbershop and Rock’n’Roller Parlour back full time! But both are by appointment only, so please only visit them if you have a pre-booked appointment. Again, more info via their pages.
We’re pleased to announce Escape Live Coventry – The Live Escape Game are back, so check out their website and book your game today! And you can also visit the Phil Silvers Museum as part of Sgt Bilko’s Vintage Emporium too.
And super excited that The Drawing Room will soon be open full time. Check out their social media for opening times and appointments.
The health and safety of our visitors, our businesses, and our staff is our number one priority. With this in mind, please read through the following guidance, measures we have put in place, and useful information, so you are ready for a trip to FarGo!
The new Village opening hours will be 11 am – 4 pm Thursday- Sunday. This will be the case for the next few weeks, so please bear this in mind when planning your visit. Some shops are open outside of these hours Mon-Wed, if you want to visit a particular retailer on these days, please contact them directly. We plan to be open full time from 03 August.
Strict 2m social distancing will be in place. We have some signs on the floor to help you get your bearings.
Access to the village will be through the front gates leading onto Far Gosford Street only- this is so we can monitor how many people are in the village at any time and keep everyone safe.
There will be a one-way system in the Market Hall and our traders will have limits on the number of customers in their shops due to their size. Please enter through the shutter nearest Choc N Roll, and exit through the shutter nearest Auntie Olives Attic.
Most of the furniture is out of bounds lounging and chilling is unfortunately not an option for now.
We have provided hand sanitizer stations around the village, so please do ensure you are washing your hands regularly. Handwashing facilities are available for all in the Market Hall.
Cleaning procedures are in place, and cleaning of sinks and surfaces will take place every two hours.
We will be opening our public toilets from Thu 16th July which will be cleaned 2 hourly during public opening times. We will also provide cleaning products fr your own use outside of these times.
Currently, we do not require you to wear a face mask, although they may be needed in some of the shops. From 24th July in line with government regulation, you will be required to wear a mask in all of our shops.
We believe we have done everything possible to make your visit to FarGo safe. Please do tell us if you think we can improve – this is a new time for all of us! We do hope that you will join us and support our local, independent traders as we get back to normal.
