What Covid-19 restrictions have been eased and what can you do now?

For elderly people and other single people living alone in England, the news that they can form “bubbles” with one other household from June 13 will have been welcome news.

It means that the two households can now visit each other and enter each other’s houses and even stay overnight.

However, those particularly vulnerable people, such as the over-70s and others with underlying health conditions are advised to still stay at home as much as possible, although they are now able to go outdoors and meet other people but at a social distance of 2 metres.

Also, non-essential shops are now able to open but with measures in place to help people to stay safe.

Zoos, safari parks and National Trust outdoor locations are now also open, but, again, with restrictions.

The National Trust is limiting numbers and so all visitors to their parks and gardens are asked to book a ticket online.

They have very comprehensive guidance on their website here, and yes, you can have a picnic if you wish!

Benches and picnic tables will be available where they are dispersed and allow for social distancing.

If you are desperate to see family, or to get out into the countryside but reluctant to use public transport we are here to help you.

All our vehicles are scrupulously cleaned between passengers, we wear facemasks at all times to ensure your safety.

We are also still doing shopping collections and shopping trips for those who are unable to get out themselves.

Just call us.
