Eastbourne Hospitality Association and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service


Eastbourne attracts over 4.9million tourists each year and, with the coronavirus pandemic affecting businesses so much, is keen to attract visitors to the resort and give them confidence that businesses are following Government guidelines to protect as far as possible from the virus.

Eastbourne Hospitality Association (EHA) approached their Primary Authority contact in East Sussex Trading Standards, together with their linked partners in Lewes & Eastbourne Environmental Health and East Sussex Fire & Rescue, to receive valuable advice and guidance on a Covid Ready scheme.

The scheme seeks to provide businesses in Eastbourne the opportunity to use appropriate risk assessments and self-assess additional measures in place to protect customers.

They then are able to display the Covid Ready logo.

Mark Cotman, Chair of the EHA said,

“The way all stakeholders in Eastbourne and County have been working together on this project throughout this period has been an exceptional example of collaborative working.”
