Out in the fresh air - fishing, walking, hill climbing and especially golf.

We can still stay 2 metres apart and spend time in the fresh air in small groups, in couples or as individuals. This will be good for our physical and mental well being.

Why the contribution is important

We need to stay positive and engaged. This will help.

    Agree but should be confined to within say 10 miles of where one lives.

    Agree but adding a distance from home discriminates against the poor

    care needed not to encourage risky activities as mountain rescue personal should not be put at risk.

    Activities which require travel puts more traffic on the road, requiring people to congregate in petrol stations, inevitably some people will breakdown, have accidents etc which creates interaction with other people. Exactly what we are trying to prevent.

    Therefore distance restrictions are essential.

    I also can't see Golf being "Unlocked" as a priority as it is typically a hobby for wealthier individuals - I don't think the government will want to be seen to be making sure the golfers are alright.

    agree with this, and with the idea of distance as a limitation on the extent of reduction of restriction. Even in parking areas, it is easy to retain the appropriate physical distance from other car drivers/occupants.

    As someone living alone & feeling increasingly isolated from contact in real life (not just on social media), I would welcome the opportunity to walk with a limited number of other people, one would be great! I can currently chat to a stranger who I encounter out on my walk at 2m distance but cannot walk & chat with a friend at 2m distance who lives around the corner? It doesn't make sense.

    Provided there are safeguards at petrol stations, to allow local travel to exercise within my own area. After seven weeks, it would be great to be able to drive 15 mins to another area. I think the mountains are unfortunately still off limits now unless you live near to them. I am happy to stay quite local in order to reduce risks.
