Lockdown Part 2, Leicester, Day 10
Just as there was a glimmer of hope that life can return to a degree of normality, Leicester and some of the neighbouring districts were placed under a second pandemic lockdown.
For the majority of people who closely followed the government advice in respect of social distancing and cleanliness and all the restrictions imposed by the government, we were hoping to be now moving forwards and returning to normal. But the minority of people chose not to follow the rules and regulations and consequently we are back in lockdown.
There are also reports that outbreaks occurred in many of the 1500 clothing and textile factories within the lockdown areas whereby people were either unwilling or unable to follow the guidelines which therefore put everyone else at risk.
Yesterday Support Worker Monika and I encountered a young couple sharing a romantic moment (kissing) whereby one person lived on one side of the motorway bridge which is in lockdown Leicester Forest East and the other person living in the safe zone of Leicester Forest East as the M1 literally splits the Leicester Forest East area in half which is causing more anxiety and frustration amongst the parishioners I have been elected to serve.
In other news, this week my team and I continue to support a local businessman with a problem and we have been liaising with other businesses and service providers to reach a conclusion.
