So now we know, life will return to something closer to normality in just two weeks’ time. There are plenty of arguments for and against the Government’s approach, so I won’t add another voice to those.
But despite the return to normality on these shores, holidays are still a long way from “business as usual”, with some destinations totally off limits, some “green”, and others with a variety of requirements, from vaccinations to PCR tests. Which, as a family of four, with one under-18, makes foreign travel look pretty unlikely this summer.
And if I’m honest, I don’t mind too much – I’m happy to wait a few months for our next trip.
The truth is that when it comes to holidaying in a pandemic, you never quite know what you’re going to get.
Will the restrictions make enjoying some time around the pool impossible?
Will popping out for a bite to eat be easy, or beset with booking difficulties?
We don’t know, and it’s the unknown that makes it so unappealing. Recently we decided to cover off a few “unknowns” about what it’s like to visit Shields Buildings, helping our would-be visitors know exactly what to expect from their experience at the display site.
We put them into a quick video, which you can watch today – click here to watch it now.
And when you are ready to visit us and see our range of buildings, pop on down, or drop us an email to book an appointment.
