The new official tier system came into play today, 2nd December 2020, replacing national lockdown in England. 

We are now all living in a tiered England, with 99% of the UK in the toughest two tiers. 

Whilst it may not be the news we want to hear; we have pulled on our positive pants at AllHighStreets.com HQ and wanted to share why it’s not all bad. 

  1. All none essential shops can open and we can start shopping again… Shops can remain open 24/7. Who needs sleep eh! 
  1. We can go back to the gym and work off that lockdown bulge. Just us then/ No-one wants to go running in this weather. 
  1. We can go back to hairdressers and salons, time to cover those greys, and sort out the bushy eyebrows for us! 
  1. Whilst Restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars are open in tier 2-3 we can still enjoy takeaways in the comfort our homes. Mr AHS was getting a little sick off all my home-cooked meals! 
  1. We can still see our friends in a group of six albeit outdoors. 
  1. Schools and universities can remain open. Continuing education for children in their early years is key and great that our little ones or young adults can continue to follow their vocations/education.

March lockdown seems like a long-time ago as we are coming to the end of the year. Looking back over the last ten months, life feels different for so many of us and we certainly appreciate the simple pleasures that life has to offer.  

Let’s not forget for five days over Christmas from 23rd December to 27th December there will be a UK wide relaxation of the rules and we can form a bubble with three households and mix socially, indoors and stay overnight to enjoy the festive period. 

In Scotland, a maximum of eight people will be allowed to mix (that does not include under-12s). In Northern Ireland, the window has been extended to 22nd –28th December to allow for additional travel time between countries. 

We all miss our lives before COVID 19 and hopefully we can get back to normality soon. 

With the news of vaccination starting from next week, it’s definitely a week of hope.
