    • Hoping that the lockdown can be eased gradually, and safely. Social contact is important for our health and wellbeing. Yet we want people to be safe. Keeping a safe distance apart will hopefully allow the infection rate to fall / reduce. Giving some valuable time for a safe and effective vaccine to be produced:- So as to be able to safely interact / socialise.

      Variety is the spice of life. Lockdown has led to limitations. No parks, no cafés, no cinema, etc. If/ when the situation regarding lockdown is eased :- I think we will all be ever so grateful. Interacting with family, friends, etc will be so appreciated. For some being in a family unit will seem OK, it is the wider family, and friends who are presently missed.
