He said, “We expect there will be a huge increase in the demand for alcohol and barbecues as families seek to get together and friends seek to hang out in their outdoors when there is. Rule of Six.”
“I think families are really eager to start socializing again and being able to sit in people’s gardens with a little bit of good weather. It sure will spur the demand for barbecues, alcohol and even patio furniture. People want that social interaction.”
Despite the new freedoms, many people remain wary about socializing this Easter, according to a survey.
A quarter of 1,200 drivers surveyed by the Center for Regional Activities said they are not planning leisure drive travel over the weekend due to the pandemic. According to the study, motorists expect to make 5.6 million car trips only between Good Friday and Easter Monday. Easter is usually one of the busiest weekends of the year, with 12.2 million trips in 2019.
RAC spokesperson Rod Dennis said: “What is traditionally one of the busiest weekends can turn into anything but as the pandemic continues to have a major impact.
