Excerpt from article:

'The Tier 4 rules which come into effect on Sunday will include:

* A ?stay at home? message in law, apart from limited exemptions such as work, education, healthcare, childcare and exercise.

* People will be advised not to enter Tier 4 areas and Tier 4 residents must not stay overnight away from home.

* Christmas bubbles are axed so households will not be allowed to mix, apart from for support bubbles.

* Non-essential shops will have to close, effectively from close of business on Saturday, as will indoor leisure such as gyms, indoor entertainment including cinemas, bowling alleys and casinos, and the personal care sector including hairdressers and nailbars.

* Household mixing will be limited to one person being able to meet with one other person in a public space outside, with exemptions for support bubbles and for childcare bubbles and for children whose parents have separated.

* For the clinically extremely vulnerable, people who have been shielding in the past, the guidance from November will be reimposed which broadly says that these inidividuals should not to go to work, limit time outside the home and take exercise outside at less busy time.

* People currently not at home in Tier 4 will be able to travel back.

* People will not be able to travel abroad on holiday.

* Outdoor sport will be able to continue and there will be no restrictions on exercise.'

Of course there is no need for the statutory instrument for gyms and swimming pools in Tier4 to announce they close from tomorrow, as they have already done.

All my sympathy to those who experience bereavement and grievance at this time of the year or have had their therapies and care stopped because of Covid.

The new regulations SI 2020/1611 are now available at https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/1611/contents/made.

They're written as an amendment to the original All Tiers regulations SI 2020/1374 of 2 December, https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/1374/contents. The meat of the amendments is a new freestanding Schedule 3A which specifies all the Tier 4 restrictions. An updated version of SI 2020/1374 could conceivably appear later.

ETA: The All Tiers regulations SI 2020/1374 at https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/1374/contents did indeed become a fully consolidated version a day or two later.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
