    a really great concept , and first time in a long time I felt proud of the UK.
    However it has run its course now - last one next week is the right call.

    Its 100% a community thing for us now. This and the VE Day socially distanced front “garden” picnic have done more for our neighbourhood than anything else, Covid or no Covid. We’re already planning a post Covid party.

    It’s one major positive form this period that should be ongoing for us.

    Hopefully people are a bit nicer and more community minded from now, though I fear it will fade away.

    Yeah, you’re probably right, although we have learnt each other’s names at least, so there might be some empathy displayed down the line.

    It's a start. I just realised I don't know the name of any of the people I speak to at the match every other week, lol!

    Me too! The guy next but one being a semi pro golfer in his sixties is going to be either dead or frustrated he isn’t swinging his clubs.

    Odd isn't it? I know bits about their lives and them mine but not their names. One old boy in front of me is in his eighties I hope he is there next time we get to go to a game.

    It wasn't me, it was my next door neighbour and I only found out about it after the event. She's 78 herself and presumably didn't want to waste precious resources - I don't know really. But yes I would have phone for an ambulance.

    Off for a test at the Etihad this morning, been near my auntie via a family member (same household) who went walking with her (regular exercise with someone outside the household as per the new rules, kept our distance) and she's tested positive got the results back last night.

    I'm almost certain I've had it back in March but need to be sure for my work.

    Unless it’s an antibody test I don’t see the point, you go down without symptoms and the test comes back negative in 3 days but in that time period you could get it! Or the test comes back positive and you should’ve been isolating in that time but haven’t so possibly passed it on!
