Physical distancing

Jackie from South New Brighton

Could I please ask people to be a bit more aware of those that are trying to keep that physical distance away from others, esp when they are in the 'at risk' category? One of the few things I can do is walk my dog, and last night I took her to the beach at South New Brighton about 6.30 pm. As I got to the beach end of the narrow pathway, a man stood, talking to his young son, blocking the way. I stopped but they didn't move, so I had to walk over the dunes, with my shaky balance, while keeping a rein on my excited dog. Please be aware, people!
