Well they better get out there and do all the road works done at the same time, so we can all not get stuck in the works and have nice safe roads for when we all get back to it

Tragically the two people who were members of the bowling club that my wife attended, have died, within hours of each other. They were husband and wife, the woman had been on a ventilator for something like 10 days apparently.

My wife is very upset being informed by another club member this evening. What seemed so far away now is very real in our consciousness. Putting into context the level of potential risk.

I was contemplating, undertaking my own shopping. I find that both obtaining a delivery or collection slot, in conjunction with the as delivered purchases very disappointing, still being short of some items. As is sometimes said, I will have to live with that and accept it.

Yet staying in seems a better bet, at the moment. The longer term expectation and opinion seems to be that we will all be exposed to Covid-19. My worry is that if you are unlucky even with access to a suitable breathing device, things may not go well.

Sorry to hear that erfolg. Sadly as you say there will be more of this as things progress. And no prognosis for intubated patients does not sound good. I hope the search for palliative drugs shows some fruit soon.

Online shopping slots are best booked at midnight in my recent experience. Stay safe.

Our youngest is on her first day as an auxiliary volunteer at Great Western Hospital ,Swindon. She’s done this as Uni has closed.

Her Majesty was right what she said last Sunday. Here is one that has walked straight into the fire to help. Be safe my darling

Are those standard goggles for when you get thrown in at the deep end?

Stay safe everyone involved.

Well done to her and all the NHS staff. They have been underappreciated and underfunded for many years.

More restrictions being eased, what's peoples thoughts about open days ?

Are they doable, toilets present an issue, what other issues does anyone see, I'm talking the small club events not the big ones, not looking for a row either, just other peoples thoughts please.

I personally would leave until the rate of infections for the area had reduced to very low levels. There are some relatively near by towns with reported high levels of the Virus.

Both the UK and Scottish governments have taken a view that we as individuals, do not need the nannie state, expecting us as individuals to be sensible, rather than provide explicit instructions for all occasions.

On that basis many, if not all parts of the UK could be fine.

In case of the club I am a member, in many respects much is the same now as pre-lock down. The one case in our area came into the area, to undertake some work (at a local Golf Club) where my wife plays. The "Track and Trace" seems to have done its job, where all who had some contact have been informed and isolated. The has surprised me after all the negative press.

On the basis that we have transitioned to Phase Three here in Scotland, tomorrow I plan to go further than the gate for the first time since Mid-March and have only my second trip to the field this year.

I was going to leave it until the end of the month but I think I'll have a few flights on Sunday. Seeing as the weather's looking ideal and with common sense and sticking to a few simple precautions at the field, my trips to go food shopping are probably more risky, and then not by that much now. Will be the first flights since last October, so a nice easy day with a sports model to get back into it.

A related issue, albeit slightly off topic.

Anyone watching “Match Of The Day” might have just cause for wondering if a certain group of people have been officially exempted from following or complying with government advice and, if so, why? Other than the absence of spectators, it looks like business as usual to me and in the seemingly complete absence of any criticism within the media or by politicians.

It hardly sends out a consistent message to the public, nor does it help to combat the conspiracy theorists or the persuading of the irresponsible and the selfish.

Perhaps it’s a cricket preferring Tory government conspiracy to kill off footballers?
