Knowle is opening up and the notices on the shops are changing to ones of positivity. “We are opening up” is the general message. Three of the restaurants had resorted to boarding up their windows so it is nice to see them taken down and messages of how they are resuming their services. Several of the shops look very empty and places such as the opticians and the hairdressers are missing the human interaction. They will be difficult to manage for social distancing purposes but I know they will find a way around it. I have taken several photographs which provide hope and are looking to the future. Very different from my earlier posts at the start of the lockdown.
