Just had the first ministers update for Wales....no change in lockdown for next 3 weeks...only minor changes to allow exercise more than once a day and garden centres allowed to open...no mention of any restoration of outdoor sports and pastimes.....assume nothing will change in England when Boris gives update on Sunday......Sit tight and stay safe !

I suppose its to expected , nothing much has changed regarding the virus, its not become weak all of a sudden. I would imagine that the priority is getting people back to work safely , and I don't envy anyone trying to achieve that ! Agree with your closing sentiment.

That’s pretty much as I expected. Allowing exercise more than once a day is a good way of testing the waters to see how low risk outdoor activities are so it should give an idea of how to go forward in terms of allowing other outdoor activities a few weeks down the line.

Tbh anyone that was expecting major changes before June was either overly optimistic or just delusional as we’ve only started making actual progress on the virus in the last week or so.

Opening of schools outside essential workers will be reviewed in 3 weeks and would take 3 further weeks to implement so I am reading that in Wales no schools for at least further 6 weeks

The trouble is the government have act by the lowest common denominator, they know most people are sensible and capable of fishing whilst maintaining safe distance. They also know there are idiots and it's the idiots that will get noticed and drag everyone else down.

TBH the South East of Wales has been a hotspot so there is strong support to keep lockdown in place here

Really not sure what the point of reopening schools is now save for those too young to stay at home whilst parents are at work. Maybe primary schools could go back but not secondary schools surely just wait until the new term now.

Wonder if the Police will just stand and watch this Gathering like they did with the Climate change lot ?

By all means discuss and debate but to physically meet up socialise in the face of Govt instructions is sheer lunacy. Whatever we think privatly and I myself have views away from the mainstream, there is no excuse to frighten people who are already in the grips of fear ie the old and vulnerable.

You do wonder how many of those that have caught and/or succumbed to it are those that have not obeyed the distancing, got to be a reasonable number you’d imagine. The phrase it’s your funeral certainly comes to mind when I see or hear of people being stupid.

They just don't get it do they ? How long is it going to take for these morons to realise the government is trying to save their life as well ? Let the silly ###### meet up and when they start to wobble leave them where they fall.

I think it will be more of an excuse for a dig at the Police to be honest, they will try stop it and before ya know it the ones who have gone down for a do will be there.
