Savagebee - You're right, most Londoners won't take the slightest bit of notice, can you imagine in a Sainsbuy or Tesco in Sarf London if someone is asked to stand behind a line at the checkout, it's just not going to work in a million years is it

Boris Johnson is trusting the people to do the right thing but I'm afraid some people just cant be trusted to do the right thing in this world and they will wreak it for the rest of the people especially the NHS front line staff who are putting there own health at risk to help people.

A friend of mine was in Chiswick's Sainsbury's today and people were doing the right thing there.

Airports should be closed full stop and so should all Parks if they can be oh and Greggs should be closed :icon_lol:

PS- Mike Ashley doesn't help himself does he :icon_lol:

As an 'At Risk' person of 72, I am doing everything advised.

I get my daily excercise by walking the 400 mts to the corner shop on our estate.  The owners ensure there is no crowding and people keep there distance which customers respect.

I'm pretty sure that if this goes on for weeks I'll become stir-crazy.

People who openly and deliberately flout the advice about congregating are nothing short of selfish unthinking criminals and should be treated as such.  Maybe under rapidly produced legislation, they will be !!

Not directly SSML but the Boreham Wood Chairman , Danny Hunter, has issued a lengthy and dramatic Club statement where I feel that he has gone slightly overboard, despite these unprecedented times. He says, amongst other things, that "none of you need me to tell you, that there isn’t a cat in hell’s chance of any football starting up again in the National League on April 3rd or anywhere near that date" and "the reality is football must, I repeat must, become a total irrelevance for many of you for you for the foreseeable future", see what you make of it anyway:

I see that outspoken Boreham Wood Chairman Danny Hunter has been at it again saying that everyone should stay safe and well. It will be interesting to see if Mr Hunter continues to feel the same way over the coming months if football doesn't make a quick return, however he is in a far more enviable position than most Club Chairmen due to the lucrative ten year deal struck with Arsenal in 2017 for their all conquering ladies team and youth teams to use Meadow Park, that must be worth an absolute fortune to the Club and Boreham Wood also received a huge grant from the Premier League:

A letter from the Hertfordshire FA issued yesterday, following an emergency Board meeting:

Please see the important message from Karl Lingham, Hertfordshire FA CEO

Dear All,

Firstly, I hope you and your families are all safe, well and keeping positive whilst we battle against this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic together.

As you may know all grassroots football including matches, training and friendlies is suspended and this will continue until further notice (in accordance with advice from the FA). Our office and facilities have also been closed with staff working remotely.

Following a Hertfordshire FA Emergency Board meeting held on Monday, 30 March 2020, I can further advise that with effect from 1 April 2020, all Hertfordshire FA staff except for those listed below will be on furlough leave until 31st May 2020:

Karl Lingham, CEO and Senior Safeguarding Lead
karl.lingham@hertfordshirefa.com – 07894 952570

Rob Smith, Head of Commercial and Operations
rob.smith@hertfordshirefa.com – 07496 988727

Lauren Halsey, Head of Football Services
lauren.halsey@hertfordshirefa.com – 07496 988733

Marianna Okoh, Finance Officer
marianna.okoh@hertfordshirefa.com – 07947 884271

Furlough leave is a temporary leave of absence for economic reasons and is designed to save jobs in the long term. Our workforce is supportive of this decision and look forward to returning to work at the earliest possible opportunity.

We would therefore ask that during this time you please direct any enquiries through to one of the four members of staff mentioned above or to contactus@hertfordshirefa.com and we will respond as swiftly as we possibly can.

Please stay safe, keep well and follow government advice during this very challenging time. For further information regarding Coronavirus and how it affects football in Hertfordshire, visit our dedicated updates page.

Kind Regards,
Karl Lingham

It is lucky the Hertfordshire FA explained in their letter what Furlough leave meant as I wouldn't have had a clue, I assume that the staff who drew the short straw will not be getting paid until returning to their desks at the County Ground in Letchworth Garden City
