THE team at a bingo hall in Chester are preparing to welcome back visitors safely on Monday.

Reopening venues on May 17 is an even bigger deal for Mecca as 2021 marks its 60th year.

Leonard Lubega, general manager at Mecca Bingo Chester, said: “We’re incredibly excited to welcome people back. "We’re a friendly face in the community – that’s a really unique part of our brand and heritage – we know and love our customers very much and we’ve very active in the area when it comes to community initiatives.

"We’ve really missed being a part of people’s day to day lives so May 17 can’t come soon enough.

"And this year as it’s our big birthday, we’re coming back in style with more to offer than ever - we’re expecting this to be the year of bingo!”

Mecca continues to employ extensive safety measures against covid-19.
