Understanding the new rules of lockdown #stayalert

I have seen a lot of comments on social media about the new rules of lockdown, as of 10th May 2020, Boris announced some changes to the lockdown and also some changes to the message of Stay at Home to Stay Alert.

A trip to the Lake District – The Old Stables and Binsey Hill

A trip to the Lake District – The Old Stables and Binsey Hill

A Bank Holiday weekend, is the perfect opportunity to spend a few wonderful days with my little family and I have to say, I love nothing more.
