In this issue
The news that last week retail was able to fully reopen and that pubs and restaurants can open (albeit outside only at present) brought some welcome cheer. In this issue we look at what the second step in the government’s roadmap out of lockdown means and when the next steps take place.

The majority of us have been a bit languid during the pandemic, especially during the last lockdown. So whether you want to get beach ready, regain some fitness or simply blow away the cobwebs, we introduced Active April as an incentive.

Earlier this month we heard the sad news about His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh and in this issue we revisit some of his appearances in the borough.
