Thanks for that @eltonioni quite interesting and some of it we've seen in the local paper from time to time.
The cinema and related development remains highly controversial and may well not happen, but that's old news.
We have seen the demise of national chains in the town centre, notably House of Fraser, and no-one has interest in taking that up, which is also old news. The local specialists and the market remain very popular and seem to be adapting thus far. MrsJohnm's favourite clothes shop has re-opened on an appointment basis as her clientele are "regulars " in the main rather than "passing trade" she may do OK, let's hope so.
It's been striking that many local businesses have been operating throughout on a modified basis, restaurants doing take away and selling produce for example, a fair bit of creativity in the interests of survival and many of us have tried hard to support them. The national chains closed and may never re-open at the same level as people discovered local alternatives. E.g. Boots closed and the local pharmacy prospered.
Many of us are now out and about some using face-coverings some not so it'll be interesting to see what transpires next week.
The 3 of us will be patronising another local pub for supper tonight and the weather looks like it might be the garden rather than the restaurant
