A flood-damaged Wells pub will not open before January but other Quayside businesses are continuing their race against time to be ready for one of the town’s busiest weekends of the year.
The Wells Christmas Tide, a hugely popular event which sees Santa arrive in the town by boat, starts tomorrow and runs through to Sunday.
K’s Burger Bar, Sands Arcade and Shop With a View gift shop all remain closed today.
The Golden Fleece pub is expected to stay closed until January.
Steven Brundle, 60, who co-owns the pub with Paddy McAloon, said: “We’re hoping our insurance will cover loss of trade over Christmas but the assessors have so many people to see and it’s going to take a lot of time to sort out.”
Standard House Chandlery, on East Quay, remains closed.
