In previous articles, we have written and analysed some of the trends that have started to emerge during Lockdown and considered those which we think might carry on in future.

Amongst much of the negative Covid-19 news, we hope some positive aspects, such as appreciating our homes, gardens and surrounding areas will continue.

Working Safely Whatever The Next Steps Are

As Boris Johnson took his first daily press conference yesterday, since returning to work, much of the talk over the past few days has been speculation around how the lockdown might be lifted. Indeed the search term ‘when will lockdown end in the UK’ has been trending all week.
