But things are expected to turn cloudier for the reopening of outdoor hospitality from Monday, alongside outdoor attractions including swimming pools, funfairs and theme parks.

Outdoor organised activities and wedding receptions, both for up to 30 people, can also take place from then.

On Friday, Wales’s First Minister Mark Drakeford confirmed that indoor supervised activities for children, indoor organised activities for up to 15 adults, and the reopening of community centres are being brought forward from May 17 to May 3.

He also said indoor hospitality and all tourism accommodation can reopen from May 17, subject to confirmation by the party that leads the Welsh Government following the Senedd election.

Mr Drakeford has credited a “fantastic team effort across Wales” for keeping coronavirus cases low, and a vaccination rollout that is “going from strength to strength”.

Wales has the lowest level of virus infections in the UK and is third in the world in terms of vaccine delivery, while case rates are below 15 per 100,000 people.
