04 July in Lockdown
Today saw the opening of many businesses and venues including hair salons, barbers and Bed and Breakfasts. On my way to work early in the morning, queues had formed outside five of the opened Barbers situated on Mutley Plain and ‘open’ signs were finally being displayed outside of local B&B’s
05 July in Lockdown
Places of worship display evidence of their reopening’s with safety precautions.
The local corner shop with an abundance of plants for sale, perhaps for those still preferring to enjoy and spend time in nature closer to home in their gardens.
Some people who may not have had food deliveries pre lockdown (but found it a necessity during the pandemic) are still keen to remain having their food delivered.
Enjoying the new relaxation of rules around interactions with others by visiting my mum in her home for the first time in months whilst we remain socially distancing.
