So you are not now wanting to make masks compulsory, make your mind up.

Personally I think we need full social distancing,compulsory masks and the pubs restricted to outdoors only or food only service NOW!!!

Are you saying that there should be no exemptions from wearing masks? If so how are people going to eat and drink at the pubs ?


Edders doesn’t do pubs, so no problem for him. Boris has lost the plot, but I’m glad edders isn’t running the country.

we are now the second highest in lincolnshire and catching up with little Estonia now but at least most the increase to 18th September appears to be around Grotsville! figures not updated since then.

I thought the Lincoln Christmas market would be a bonanza for cabbies. the busiest time of year for passengers arriving at Lincoln central surely?

or do you work St Marks :lol:

You are probably right in the passenger numbers at Lincoln central. Unfortunately cabbies are denied access to the station during that week. And the rank on the street is swamped with private cars, which means nowhere to ply for hire. I can see it amuses you greatly, but me, I haven’t worked the market weekend for over ten years, just a pain in the rear, really, much like you. Like Gloria Gaynor, I will survive.

got it so in actual fact you have more chance of earning with the market cancelled. The same with us we lose our taxi rank to the market each year but only 1 day.

We also lose it 5 sundays a year for the parades to the war memorial

They currently have 0.
