Keep safe this Easter weekend

I’m sure that many of you have plans this weekend to meet up with friends and family to enjoy the Easter Bank Holiday.

The new guidance around meeting a group of people outdoors has been really welcome news for many of us and is a big step in the right direction in terms of our journey out of lockdown; however, it’s really important to stick to the guidance and only meet outdoors.

This may mean being put in situations where you have to say no to joining a large group of more than 6, or perhaps feeling pressured to go indoors with people outside your bubble.

It is so important to set your boundaries and be assertive in those situations, and to continue following the guidance to keep yourself and your loved ones safe from the virus.

I hope you have a happy and safe bank holiday weekend.
