Sadly, having returned to some sort of normality, we are once again being forced to close.

Frustrating isn’t the word.

So from Thursday of this week, the doors will be shut and not re-opened again until Thursday 3rd December.

I can assure everyone that this is not what we would have wished for, and our staff are equally upset, but alas, we have no choice.

Let’s be honest, until a vaccine is found, this nasty virus will never go away (and even then it may stay with us), so we have to be prepared to live with it as best we can.

Shutting down virtually the whole country again with the financial, business, work and mental health consequences had better be worth it, otherwise there will be many questions posed to the doom-mongers who seem to have a grip on the Government whereas the more optimistic scientists are brushed aside as though their positivity is an inconvenience.

Let’s hope that in a months’ time, we can return to “normal” and begin living without all these restrictions.

We’ll be back then, with the doors flung open and welcoming everyone back with a massive smile.

Until then, we all need to keep smiling, even if we don’t feel like it, and get through this latest obstacle as positively as possible.

Oh….and when will the politicians finally develop a backbone sufficiently to send this multi-billion pound bill to the Chinese government?

Keep well!
