Let us know if you’ve hit the shops since lockdown restrictions have eased

Non-essential shops were finally allowed to open up again earlier this month.

Retailers were forced to shut for more than three months after England was sent into a national lockdown at the beginning of the year as Covid cases and deaths began to rise.

However, following the second step in the Government's 'roadmap' out of lockdown, shops, pubs, and restaurants were allowed to open their doors on Monday, April 12.

People will also be able to meet indoors again instead of gardens and public spaces, abiding by the Rule of Six.

Crowds in smaller numbers will be permitted to attend performances and sporting events as well.

The Government hopes that step 4, which will not be in place before June 21, will see the removal of all limits on social contact and nightclubs can open their doors once again.
