Something to look forward to this weekend

There's lots you can do that you couldn't before such as a visit to the gym or the pool or an organised event indoors with 15 people. Restrictions are easing but we still need to stay safe because the virus is still with us. Following the hands-face-space rules is the way to do it.


Let's eat out safely

If you're buying a takeaway please don't congregate in the area afterwards. If you're planning to enjoy sit-down food and drink, you will be met by a host who will allocate you a table where friendly staff will come and serve you. Following the rules helps keeps you, the staff and the rest of us safe by reducing the risk of the virus being passed around.


Community centres opening

Community centres across the city are starting to open which is great news. If you're thinking of heading over please check in with your community group before you set out.
