    Leicester Lockdown ?

    Totally agree, and did not mean anything by it over and above one possible event that could cause contact between an increased number of people.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    Apologies, been a while since I lived there (OK guessing my memory may be a bit hazy as I moved out of Leicester in 1995) only get back for Tigers matches every now any again now.

    Leicester Lockdown ?

    With a large asian community, any rise may well be as a result of Eid rather than anything else which may also account for the rise over the last 2 weeks but the more recent dropping off of new cases.

    Surely, capacity allowing going forward, anyone who goes near a doctor's surgery with a cough is going to get a covid swab up the nostrel

    Staff I agree with. Regulars I am not concerned with, regulars are very protective of their pub and, certainly in my local, would be pulling people up for social distancing breaches. The problems are pubs with less in the way of regulars, larger pubs and town/city centre ones. Guessing they may...

    I am not sure that, given the option, many pubs would have opened before Friday even if they were given the option from Monday. Most pubs around me are shut on Monday and barely break even for the rest of the week until the weekend. I suspect many pubs would rather leave their staff on furlough...

    Nobody said the first weekend would be easy but I just cannot see how the crowds would be any different this Saturday or the Saturday after. it is not as if people will go out this weekend, think that's me done for a while, and not go out the following week. This is a big step in the return to...

    Totally the opposite, everything will taste weak compared to the measures I have been pouring at home :):)

    Anyone doing cheap deals on Clicgears?

    Don't think you will be disappointed, it really is very solid and well made.

    Where do you buy cheap golf clothing?

    I agree with that, adding 'golf' to the name of something does seem to ramp up the price. Always wondered what the big difference is between spikeless golf shoes and astroturf trainers that justifies the price difference. I used to know a few people that played in astroturf hockey boots and I...

    Anyone doing cheap deals on Clicgears?

    Yeah, folds up and fits in the front footwell of my car (do not have much of a boot). As with all clicgears, it take a few goes to get used to their folding mechanism but once you do it is easy.

    Not sure if it is the same everywhere, but I would also add that my local pub has had to pass tests and inspections by both the local authority and the brewery to ensure that they have robust practices and procedures in place. It is not as if they are just opening their doors and hoping for the...

    All it will do is postpone any perceived difficulties by a few days whilst depriving landlords or another weekend of much needed income. I the grand scheme of things, really does not make much difference to anybody except the publicans desperately in need of income.
