Well - we are SUPPOSED to be in lockdown, only travelling to work if we cannot work from home or for essential shopping or exercise, though from seeing some of the pictures at places like the Whitehall Garden Centre and reading what is reported

Dozens of locals have raised concerns over the vast number of people visiting Whitehall Garden Centre near Chippenham over the weekend.

Visitors have been accused of ignoring the government?s current restrictions, but rules do permit people to visit shops open to the public ? including garden centres.

Despite the centre putting in place the required precautions and following the COVID-secure guidelines, it hasn?t stopped families eager to view the Christmas display from flocking there.

Throughout the weekend, dozens of vehicles were parked along Corsham Road and other nearby streets, some parked illegally on junctions and blocking assess to farmers? fields.

Families ? some with small children and pushchairs ? could be seen walking up and down the road which has a national speed limit (60mph).

?It?s not our fault that a large amount of people tried to visit us today?, the firm?s marketing manager Charlotte Self said, commenting on yesterday?s parking concerns.

Adding that the centre has ?restricted the number of people allowed in? at any one time.

Miss Self told local residents ?we?re trying our best?, mentioning that closing the establishment unnecessarily would mean they ?couldn?t support their 180 staff?.

To reduce the spread of coronavirus, Whitehall Garden Centre has placed sanitising stations throughout and completely restructured the farm shop and checkout areas.

I will be at home ... having said which, I have a 10 a.m. zoom meeting so I'll sadly have to miss the program ...

....

Looks like the council took the same view ...

https://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/news/COVID-direction-order-successful-at-Whitehall-Garden-Centre

Quote
Wiltshire Council has successfully implemented a COVID Direction Order after it required a local business to make a number of improvements to ensure it can operate safely and protect public health.
 
Whitehall Garden Centre in Lacock was issued with a COVID Direction Order and had to take actions to comply with restrictions to help prevent COVID-19 transmissions within the county.
 
The centre took necessary steps to improve their systems to achieve the public health requirement and manage the risk to Wiltshire residents by ensuring appropriate measures were in place.

The centre was issued with the directions, issued under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No.3) Regulations 2020 on Monday 30 November.  This directed the management of the garden centre to comply with a number of directions, including review car parking arrangements, implement more measures to ensure customers can visit in a COVID secure way such as an improved queuing system, floor markings and one-way system; increase staff training and much more careful monitoring of customer numbers on the premises.

As I have not seen a rash of notices like this, can I read into this that for some reason it was especially necessary in this case?
