Excitement Grows for Tea By the Lock’s Potential Wednesday Re-opening near York

Ruth Richards is busy cleaning Tea By The Lock at Naburn, hoping to re-open it on Wednesday after it was closed due to flooding. The last time she opened her business was the Saturday before Christmas. The floods have cost her at least nine days of trading, and the building has suffered some damage. While the floodwaters are receding, the car park is still too deep to be used, and the area is covered in debris. City of York Council is conducting a clean-up in the city center and other affected areas, and certain roads and car parks have reopened. With the weather expected to be dry but cold, the council’s gritters have been deployed to keep the roads safe from any potential hazards caused by frost and ice.
