Hopefully the pubs will survive because I do feel that many might not want to reopen.

I thought about this and I know a few landlords over the town.
They had it bad before the lockdown I just hope they have enough savings to put them over and see if they can salvage something.

So many in the pub at any one time... Time limit on how long you can stay in there

Some are bound to go bust.

And some are going to think it's just not worth the hassle.

The good old ski slope, I done it once but it was a quiet Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday so never bothered again.

I done it with a mate once during a quiet period about 7-8 years ago and by the time we got into town we were well drunk.
We always said we'd do it again but never got around to it.
