1. On May 17, governments saw Phase 3 of the softening measures, which allowed the reopening of various premises, including pubs. Graham, landlord. Scotch weapons in Black Hill. The first pint is drawn on Mondays after November 4, and customers enjoy their first. Graham and Louis continue to do things by providing Sunday meals, and Louis and his daughter are delivering them to locals who can’t go to the pub. Let’s hope all Concert’s pubs and bars can start and survive now that the situation is improving. – (Photo: Chris Bruce)

2. During the lockdown, many Muslims were unable to attend the mosque in some places. It never interferes with their routine of praying 5 times a day and they can pray anywhere as long as it is clean and there are facilities for washing hands and feet. They will pray at home, at work and even when they are out. On staff Pizza Corner in Stanley. Has worked throughout the epidemic and has been very busy, especially during total lockdown periods. It was all work and no games but now they can rest during the day and restart their outdoor BBQ. They all bring meat, salads and bread and do their part in preparing and baking it then gossiping and catching before cleaning the area thoroughly. This is something that is very popular in their hometown so they like to keep the tradition alive – (Photo: Debbie Todd)

The service typically runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and has been fully operational throughout the epidemic. This system allows a person to call for help if they have an accident, are sick or have fallen into the house. John serves as part of the council’s dedicated team of highly trained staff who respond to calls and provide needed assistance. There is an added benefit to giving this person and his family and friends peace of mind. Care Connect staff have to adapt to PPE wear and hand sanitization as well as social distance while providing an excellent service and providing reassurance and support to many people. – (Photo: George Ledger)

5. For the first time since churchgoers and the general public remained silent at the start of the lockdown on Sunday, May 23, the church bells rang in full force. According to guidance updates during various lockdown periods and tire structures, many churches are completely silent and others, such as. St. Cuthbert’s Benfieldside.Occasionally, church services are allowed to ring a few bells for a short period of 15 minutes. In their case, members of the same household could ring 3 bells, but it doesn’t look exactly the same. St. Cuthbert resumed ringing all six bells at once before church service on Sunday, May 23. Under government Phase 3 restrictions, some ringers were able to ring for the first time in a year. The instructions to allow this include – the principle of six applies indoors, which means that only six people from different families can meet at a time, so the band set up a ring of rangers to comply. (However, since St. Cuthbert’s small band, the ringers include 2 families, each with 3 rangers, social distance is easy in the very limited area of ​​the Bell Tower). The hand-face-space rules apply, the Benfield side rangers have ‘hand sanitizers’ inside the tower, the face curtains are worn by all the rangers and the social distance in the tower is kept at maximum distance. Finally, unlike many bell towers, St. Cuthbert’s has particularly good ventilation with two windows, a balcony door opening into the body of the church, and stairs that provide a draft of fresh air.

6. Concert Rugby Club. Music event, the club recently opened its doors to the public for a weekend music festival. The coveted open air concert was received by the community as a sign that some of the routines in our lives were returning, as large events were allowed from March 17 but with limited numbers and further restrictions. Everyone in attendance had a great time, including the music acts who were thankful to be able to perform again. The club’s friendship and wonderful weather ensured plenty of smiling faces.

7. Tesdale and Weirdale Search and Mountain Rescue. The team works 24 hours each day of the year and provides search and rescue services throughout county Durham, from western high waterfalls to North Sea coastal communities. The team responds to police requests, from injured or missing people in the mountains to the weak missing in urban areas. The team’s skills and resources continue to grow to keep pace with our evolving role. The rescue team consists of about 50 volunteers, all on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All of our volunteers have full-time jobs and cover all their expenses. Regular training sessions are essential to maintain the skills of team members as each member must receive training in accident management, kirg rescue techniques, communications, search techniques, search management and river search. Unfortunately, many of these sessions were canceled due to restrictions during Coveid’s time. Unfortunately, requests for help have not diminished and so far this year the team has responded to more than 30 callouts. As can be seen in the pictures, team members must adhere to social distance laws and PPE guidelines to limit ‘fallout’ if a member tests positive for Quaid 19. Every time team members respond to a call for help, create more pressure and difficulties for them. (Photo: George Ledger)

8. Durham County Council Street Wardens. There are many challenges in helping our local community stay safe and protect the environment during the Quaid. One of the challenges was that members of the public could not access the council’s recommendations, so fly-tipping increased. They have also had the opportunity to learn new skills with the help of other council departments, such as becoming a ‘Dog Warden’ or ‘Pest Control Officer’. Their key role includes partnerships with agencies such as the police and fire service. They are very much in the heart of our community. (Photo: Steve Webb)
