Covid Watch: Shropshire Council wants you to report on whether businesses are complying with rules while thinking of Swiss Cheese

Are you off to the pub tonight or are looking forward to a relaxed meal in your favourite restaurant? Maybe you are doing an evening shop. The weekend is coming and that will be a busy time for going to shops and venues. But is your experience safe? Are the publicans, restaurateurs, shopkeepers obeying and enforcing the rules on social distancing, providing sanitiser and wearing of face coverings. Shropshire Council wants to know. This invitation to shop on the shops may make some people will feel uncomfortable. Shropshire Council has a role alongside the police in enforcing and handing out fines. It is recruiting its citizens to spy on each other. Is that a good thing? I hope you are thinking of cheese when you keep local and shop local. The council wants you think of Swiss cheese when thinking about Covid-19.

Busy Bodies nursery applies for planning permission to expand on Mascall Centre site

Busy Bodies Childcare Centre is located behind the  Ludlow Mascall Centre, alongside Friars Walk. Now run by James Boddey, this long established nursery is by all accounts successful and has a waiting list. To accommodate the growing need, James has applied for planning permission for a new building on the disused car park at the rear of the  Ludlow Mascall Centre, close to Friars Walk. The new building will be clad in wood and raised on stilts to limit damage to any archaeological resources. The new nursery area will help children explore nature, growing your own, ecology and the environment.
