CORONAVIRUS: People in Stratford social distance after Government plea

People were social distancing in Rother Street this morning, Lloyds Pharmacy having created markings on the pavement for people to wait in line

IT certainly wasn’t a typical start to a Monday morning in Stratford-upon-Avon as people tried to get on with their lives under very different circumstances.  Social distancing was more in evidence following the Government’s call for people to be aware of the dangers of close contact with others.
