please give something for every age group

Everyone needs a piece of normality so please consider everyone.
Under 3s as they don't have any other socialization opportunities as not all will attend nursery unless paid for privately by hardworking parents. the next 6 months are going to be hard on young toddlers as many will struggle with outdoor activities and parents may also have other children too. so let them have things like music groups, pre school gymnastics, swimming.

School children at least have the routine of schooling so please keep them open with quick access to testing for staff. In addition to this they can have outdoor activities and will probably cope better with playing outside than younger school children.

Older children also have schooling but consider more activities for them virtually or again outside....

let people bubble with one other household for company , support.

older people are really missing day centres/clubs however i am sure some of these could be running with strict hygiene and distancing measures.
There are many large halls in communities that could be utilitsed better

Please think about all age groups. not everyone wants to go to a pub . people feel more comfortable in their own surroundings.

Why the contribution is important

mental health
normal ways of life.
coping over the winter months.

    The youngest and oldest in society have been forgotten about, care home visits have stopped in most areas again, toddler activities have been unduly restricted to the point they can’t run. Visiting close family in each other’s homes were the most benefit to the young children and elderly but this has also been stopped. Pubs, restaurants and cafes are not safe or always appropriate or accessible for the youngest and oldest in society, I’m certainly not taking my 2 year old to a restaurant, nor my 91 year old grandma, but without access to socially interacting in other settings then you are either encouraging the risk taking of going to restaurants with the vulnerable or you are isolating them
