British Coronavirus LIVE: Police condemn social removal in pubs as NHS prepares for immunization against “biggest ever flu”

Life in pubs near the Welsh border: “I missed you more than my wife”

Drinkers enjoyed their first post-block pints when the pubs reopened in Chester, but remained closed a few miles away in Wales.

The first pints were pulled at 11 am in the city center, while a handful of regulars entered the Shropshire Arms.

“Heaven,” Bert Lockley said regularly, sipping his first pint of Guinness draft for three months.

“I missed this more than my lady did when she left,” Lockley told PA news agency.

“… I couldn’t cut my hair, they were queuing on the street and I immediately came here.”

The Shropshire Arms, a “pub for drinkers” that does not make food and instead is a place for sports and live entertainment, has space for 72 socially distant drinkers – and is fully booked on Saturdays from 11 to 23.

Another drinker, Frank Green, sipping a pint of light beer, said, “I got up early. 12 weeks have passed since I was able to come here. This is my place.

“It’s not the drink, it’s the joke with everyone else. I felt a little anxious to get in for the first time today. “

The new rules were imposed by Lance Pritchard, director of the free house, which meant not staying at the bar, at the table service and at the reservation system to get a table and a drink.
