As we move out of lockdown, non-professional choirs are facing restrictions so they can only meet in groups of 6 to rehearse indoors. I've written to @OliverDowden asking him to set out the evidence behind this decision & to change the guidance to allow choirs to resume safely.
Today is @SalfordCouncil's Full Council. Because the Govt won't let them meet online, this will cost £7k extra and has taken Public Health staff away from tackling the pandemic. @RobertJenrick must allow councils to go back to virtual meetings until restrictions are lifted.
It was wonderful to be at the official opening of the @RHSBridgewater in #Salford this morning with @TonyDavies97 and @tjkelly18 Great speeches from @salford_mayor & @CarolKlein and good to meet the designer @tomstuartsmith again Come and visit this wonderful garden
