March 20th – It was eerily quiet on the main roads too: Only the windy sweep of the odd car as I came up the Chester Road.
The colours were great in the gathering night. The view and the feeling was strangely beautiful – but life was just about to change in a huge way. It was announced that in order to stem the spread of coronavirus, pubs, cafes and restaurants would now close from this night forward.
Only takeaways would remain.
That had put a new, odd spin on the atmosphere.
