The next step on the roadmap out of Covid-19 happens and amazingly allowing two households to meet outdoors coincides with better weather. Wollaton Park is packed for our evening walk and the golfers are back out playing.

can’t open before 17th May.
Meanwhile the Arboretum was so packed on Monday it made the
East Midlands TV news. After that the council shut both the Arboretum and
Lenton Park completely, which was likely to make other places busier. Sure
