    It’s
    all very well people blaming the pub, (who were very much in the wrong), but some of the comments from people in there are baffling.

    “No table service, we all went to the bar like a usual Saturday night”.
    “Must have been 400 people in the beer garden”

    It does make you wonder of the mentality of people to put themselves through it, when they could have just WALKED OUT, but no, go in, contribute to the unholy mess then when it kicks off, blame someone else.
    The pub should be held to account, but anyone who was in there that night is also to blame.

    Article below.
    Wouldn’t be at all surprised if Stone have to lockdown soon.

    Stone are in Stafford Borough so we'll all be part of it...

    I wonder if being Tory constituencies makes you less likely to be locked down again?

    Oh shit, and I've just realised I am in the Stone constituency even though I'm further away from it than most. If I can't go on holiday...

    Six other pubs and bars in Stone have now decided to close as a precaution and another five have tightened up their restrictions in various way, all are strictly enforcing track & trace. Not to mention the effects the incident is having on cafes, restaurants & shops in the town.

    May not be just Stone town or Stafford Borough affected. People from Stoke are believed to have been at the pub as well.

    If they were stupid enough to drink so close to other people in a beer garden do we really expect any different behaviour when queueing up in a car park with their buddies?

    I assume this 'event' will now be called off, after today's announcement.

    Any weddings with 30 guests have been cancelled, so I can't see the party going ahead.

    Definitely no social distancing while they were queuing along the pavement when I passed. Even the blokes in hi-viz directing traffic & pedestrians at the carpark entrance were standing very close to people while chatting. As you say, look for another appeal in 2weeks.

    Had to go into work this afternoon, afterwards I popped to Asda for their big pack of loo rolls. There was no-one on the doors controlling the masses, there were groups of people inside stood round nattering, most hadn't bothered with masks, no social distancing at all. I got what I wanted and came home.
    Thank God for Sainsburys.

    Bought myself waxing strips in lockdown.
    Creams tend to bring me out in a rash with sensitive skin.
