Will this affect The Duck Pond Market?

The Health Minister on Wednesday issued a decree prohibiting the gathering of more than 75 people in a single, indoor space of private or public use, until the end of the month.

I see that people taking part in the marathon on Sunday which has been cancelled because of this announcement are making alternative arrangements as many were sponsored and using it as a fund-raising event.

I realise a limit has to be set somewhere, but who is going to police this 75 person limit? And who is going to count people as they come in and out?

As things stand it might well be that peeps will self police, by deciding not to venture out unless absolutely necessary.

I think that's the general idea to be honest. It's the common sense thing to do.

Dominic, doesn’t apply to supermarkets, I think following someone within 2m for 15 mins probably counts as stalking🤓

Yes, it has indoors and outside stalls. It gets packed. So we shall not be going there, as we are in the vulnerable category.

And yet...and yet...just watching the Chancellor deliver his budget speech to Parliament today and what do we have? 650 MPs sitting shoulder to shoulder, breathing in the air exhaled by the person right next to them. Talk about inconsistences :o

Whether the market is open or not I would say that it would be foolhardy to go there under present circumstances.
