Keeping the workforce moving at Europarc over Easter weekend
With an increased demand in food production due to the COVID-19 outbreak, food producers on Europarc Business Park have called on the council to support the workforce in getting to work.
North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, have been in talks with Stagecoach East Midlands and Europarc businesses to ensure the regular 1, 2 and 20 services will continue to run uninterrupted over the Easter weekend on Friday 10 April, Saturday 11 April and Monday 13 April to make sure workers can get to work.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “These are unprecedented times and I would like to thank Stagecoach East Midlands for working with the council and ENGIE in continuing to deliver this service for the Europarc business community.
“Food production workers are essential to ensuring that the current high levels of demand for food are met across the UK.
“I’d like to pass on my thanks to all the food production workers who are continuing to go to work alongside the emergency services and all other key workers and volunteers in response to COVID-19.”
