Using the bus is now free, but you'll have to register your details first.

Making trips free removes the need for drivers and passengers to touch cash or Busit cards, a statement said.

People who need the bus - for work or to get to places like the pharmacy or supermarket - now have to register their journey online using this form. You can also ring 0800 205 305.

This means that, if someone who turns out to have coronavirus uses the bus, health authorities will be able to trace people they may have been in contact with.

Busit passengers are also asked to sit in rows away from each other to keep their distance and give the bus driver some space.

There will be a variety of songs, singers and musicians over the next few weeks.

I am an ECE teacher-Reliever who has been working with ECE Consultants 5 years. I learn from the news this morning some parents who work in Essential Services, especially in health service, having problems with finding a childcare when all ECE are closure during lock down.
I have a spare single bedroom available to offer to parents in need, the room is fully furnished with single bed, and enough space for a sleeping bag (if you have 2 children). The house is warm and well insulated with a heat pump in the living room.
I don't have compromised immune and no history of traveling overseas in the past 8 months.
I hope it is not too late to offer this help.
Please feel free to contact me on my number 022 065 7865.
Cheers,
