    Pictures from yesterday of Londoners flocking to a flower market.

    Bournemouth seafront absolutely packed.

    Queueing for fish and chips in Whitby.

    Clothes shops still open!

    Costa saying they're going to close, they were a f**king café anyway.

    We're all going to pay for it with a total lockdown thanks to these bankers.

    You really don't want that to happen, especially according to two couples who are good friends of ours who have been in lockdown in Lanzarote
    in their apartments for 9 days now. It's hard, very hard.

    A couple across the road from us both had their elderly parents round for Mother's Day yesterday, one can only walk with a stick.

    The couple are both health professionals FFS.
    Nice rant!!

    And lockdown it is...

    Break for Fuller Tenants

    Well done Fullers. And I don't often say that.

    While Fullers gets a bit of critism on here for high prices now you can see the logic of never underselling your beer.You need to build up reserves of capital for any unseen problems.Well done indeed.Lets see how many other pub companies follow their lead.

    Quite a lot I would think. From what I can make out most of them, if not all rely on only a few people and any news is likely to be bad. It will most likely be the end of paper pub guides and even the GBG must be under threat. It could even see the end of CANRA as we know it especially if the GBBF gets cancelled.

    Does anyone mind if I have a rant?
    I think social distancing is unworkable at the moment. Under the current system, we are allowed daily exercise. My patner and I, have been cycling. I am amazed at how many people are wandering around, as if it were a Bank holiday. How are you supposed to stay safe, if other people are ignoring the rules? There are too many idiots about.

    I was wandering around to the supermarket today and I was amazed how many people were cycling.

    It has just (15:00) been announced that GBBF is cancelled.


    The branch magazines/newsletters are generally the work of a very few people and the larger team that deliver them to pubs, not much hope of that for a while. A lot will have the magazine ready for publication which will wait for when (if?) the pubs eventually reopen.
