What’s been happening with UK Lockdown?

16.6.2020 Well, it’s been 13 weeks now (or it might be 14 I’ve lost count) but some of us were getting quite used to this new way of life. Piece by Piece however, the Government started lifting some of the restrictions and by the middle of May we were finally allowed out into the countryside.
