Social restrictions set to remain for at least 30 years


The government’s chief medical advisor, Prof. Chris Whitty believes that social distancing may not be relaxed until the summer of 2050.

Local dad, Peter Thape has acted quickly and confirmed the June 2050 function room booking at The Red Lion, changing it from his daughter’s 21st to her 50th.  

Thape, now 60 years of age, has also booked the room for his wake, taking the £7 per head buffet option, which includes expensive looking crisps.

‘Going to have all my favourite songs playing in the background,’ said Thape.

‘Really looking forward to it,’ he added.
