HOLLYWOOD Bowl is preparing to open its venues after more than three months of closure.

The company, which has centres at Branksome and Tower Park in Poole, said it hopes to open the doors in England on July 4.

Centres in Scotland and Wales are likely to remain closed until late July.

A spokesman said the company has been working hard to implement strict safety and cleaning measures.

Stephen Burns, Chief Executive at Hollywood Bowl Group said: "The health and safety of our customers and team remains our priority. Whether it’s to bowl, enjoy the amusement areas, have a bite to eat or something to drink, we want to assure our customers that we are doing everything we can to create a safe and fun experience for families to return to. We look forward to welcoming them back through our doors very soon."

The re-opening of centres in England will see the introduction of enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures, with customer guidance throughout the centres also in place.

Each centre will reduce the number of lanes in play by only using alternate lanes to provide extra space between each game taking place.
