As everyone is no doubt all too aware, we are in the middle of an unprecedented world-wide event, and everyone has been asked to do their bit to minimise the spread and impact of the virus.  We are pleased to report that most people are adhering to the rules and dealing with the difficulties they bring admirably.  There will always be some who feel the rules do not apply to them and will carry on with life as normal.  It is clear the police alone cannot enforce these rules and it is incumbent on all of us to do our bit to try and ensure they are stuck to.  At the moment we are concentrating on engaging, explaining and encouraging people to do their bit, but if this fails then enforcement will follow.

Take care and stay safe.
