Llantwit Fardre to go into 'firebreak' lockdown from Friday

Llantwit Fardre is set for a ‘short, sharp’ lockdown which is set to run Friday 23rd of October at 6pm through to the 9th of November and during this period people have been told that they must follow the following guidance in order to try and supress the spread of the coronavirus within Llantwit Fardre and the rest of wales.

  • People must stay at home, except for very limited purposes including taking daily exercise or essential journeys.

  • People must not visit other households or meet other people they do not live with except in very limited circumstances such as providing or receiving care. There is an exception if you are an adult living alone or are a single parent household, you can form a temporary extended household with one other household. This will allow you to spend time with the people in that household as if you lived with them.

  • Pubs, restaurants, non-essential shops, hotels, hairdressers and beauticians are all to close for the duration on the lockdown.

  • Secondary schools will provide learning online only for the week after half-term, other than for children in years seven and eight.

  • Primary schools and childcare settings will remain open.

  • face coverings continue to be mandatory in the indoor public spaces that remain open (subject to certain exemptions and exceptions), including on public transport and in taxis

If you break these new laws:


  • You may be told to go home or removed from where you are and returned home.

  • You could have to pay a fixed penalty notice of £60. This will rise to £120 for the second breach,

  • Or you could have criminal proceedings brought against you, and if found guilty, you will have to pay a fine.

The Welsh Government are asking people to not only think about whether their actions are permitted but whether it is truly necessary and sensible and are calling for a concerted national effort in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in Wales.
