    Went for a ride today at Abbott Park nr Oxen Park South Lakes there was a sign on the gate saying please don’t go any further re corona etc etc. It’s a bridleway through a large yard. I turned round and went elsewhere. Is this sort of thing happening everywhere? It’s probably illegal but …

It seems people are taking the piss when it comes to the taking the dog for a walk bit.

    We’re now in the most non-stop period of the year for many sheep farmers around here. Lambing won’t wait for them to get out of hospital. Sanitise (as much as possible) any gate latches that your local farmers will be using.
