Lockdown households and bubbles have been out enjoying the sun this weekend – as temperatures hit a comfortable 11C.
Current coronavirus rules mean people can take exercise with members of their own household, or support bubble. Exercise is also permitted with one other person as long as they stay two-metres apart.
Children’s play areas in the area were particularly busy as most have remained open during lockdown 3.
Our photographer went to five beauty spots in North Staffordshire where most people were abiding by the rules and looking forward to lockdown being lifted.
