As the chair of the Town Council says – reported by Nub News:

“The Town Council wanted to show visitors and residents that Sidmouth is a safe town to visit whilst still permitting social distancing and that we are adapting to the current challenging situation. We have such a beautiful town and want people to know that it’s safe to visit and shop in too.”
