And Finally –

Anyone know if Amazon are selling any of these which I want to get to make sure everyone is social distancing from me when I take the plunge to go into Hucknall again; however, there may be a problem being allowed on to the Connect bus! I know we are all fed up with the current situation but it helps to know you have friends at the end of the phone who are keeping us up to date with news and making us feel not so lonely. Please take care and hope to see you all soon
