First time out since Lock-Down
Started by: cordyline (5350)   Report abuse
At 8 o'clock this morning we ventured out to see if life still existed beyond our four walls

Nice stroll around Alexandra Park via The Delph, then back home for porridge and a cup of tea

Papers slow off the mark after nearly 2 months of lockdown say 50% of under 30yr old ignore the lockdown

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (4783) Report abuse

I agree with that, and I would say that nearly 100% of late teen early 20s males have ignored the lockdown, they are lawless, they couldn't give a poo about anything, only themselves ....

Ive been observing the lock down rules but its not stopped me going out, Ive been all over Wigan on my bike, Chinese supermarket in Manchester twice, Bolton market three times, ASDA and Tesco umpteen times and yesterday up to Cumbria.
And at all times me and the missis wore our own made face masks, which most Wiganers in the supermarket queue thought was funny in the start of the lock down, cough cough cough.

We went out today and on our way home came past Edge Hill University and drove through a sand storm which was blowing off the fields. At one stage the blowing sand was that thick I had to stop the car for a few seconds till the wind eased.

When we went over Parbold hill you could see the soil/sand being blown up into the air over a vast area The ground must be very dry.

That much sand on the road at 6-00pm near Edge Hill Uni council were using a jcb with bucket to move the sand. The footpath was at least 2ft deep in sand

On our Delph/Alex Park stroll today we noticed that some large trees had been blown over in the park near the railway railings.
Someone had been out and sawn them up to make safe
