TLC

On the other hand things seem to have settled down somewhat. More people on the streets, but more people wearing face masks. There is the odd person who isn;t and also isn't observing social distancing but I believe most would treat them as a pariah.

It's been a month since 'The Lockdown'. People are pretty bored of it. 20,000 people have died and there seems to be no end to the forced distancing. The scientists don't have a cure and national government don;t have a clue. The status of the country is permanently in limbo.

On the other hand things seem to have settled down somewhat. More people on the streets, but more people wearing face masks. There is the odd person who isn't and also isn't observing social distancing (2 metres). Honestly i'm horrified.

The question on everyone mind and lips and intermingled in every conversation is When will things go back to normal? But what will this normal look like? I've started to think about the future of Be Enriched and Brixton People's Kitchen. The projects have always revolved around bringing disparate people's together in close proximity and celebrating these differences, sharing information and developing a deeper understanding of each other. But how do we achieve these goals safely and healthily especially when the majority of these people are the ones shielded because they are most at risk of easily catching the virus. It's something I need to think on and probably need some hive mind input into.

There are a lot of people around with nothing to do. So they are baking. There is a flour shortage across the country at the moment because people need to be kept busy. Volunteerism is on the rise, which is great, but how do we keep the momentum going as things go on?

If we, the people, can't find places to volunteer I predict there will be a vinegar and sugar shortage as they move on to chutney making.
