Can you still remember what you can and can’t do?
As the lockdown goes on and small changes are made it seems increasingly hard to remember what we can and can’t do. How many people can be in a support bubble for example? Or are the over 70s allowed to visit a zoo? For anyone wanting to refresh their memory this summary https://tinyurl.com/y83xgs54 put together by NHS and the County Council is a good resource. For those who want to keep it as simple as possible the message is still ‘wash your hands often and don’t go out unless you really have to’.
Can you still remember what support is available?
The same summary gives a useful reminder of the help that is available from local councils. Again, there is little that is new but there is a special section on men’s health because it is Men’s Health Week (which happens every year in the week before Father’s Day). This is particularly relevant this year because men are around twice as likely to die from Covid-19 as women. The resources here https://shop.menshealthforum.org.uk/collections/mens-health-week could be useful in helping deal with underlying problems such as stress and being over-weight.
Butterfly of the week
Peter Bright’s butterfly of the week last Wednesday was the Marbled White and right on cue they have appeared, particularly around Lynchcombe and Cook’s Fields. This week he focuses on the Skippers – small, large, grizzled etc. which we can now expect to start appearing around us.
If you want to look back at the butterflies described in earlier posts, or other Westbury Wildlife news please look for the wildlife category on the news page of the village website (or click here https://westburysubmendip-pc.gov.uk/category/community/westbury-society/news-and-information/ )
