Re: Bike sales

Aldi must be kicking themselves for cancelling their spring bicycle special buys event , though it's been heartening seeing all the family groups out cycling and dressed in normal clothes.

Re: Coronavirus cafes

I stopped at Southport below the sea wall, and on the edge of the salt marsh yesterday. I dined off a plastic crate handily put in place by the last winter storm/ spring tide.
