Camden and the Virus


It's an unusual situation - a walk along Lambs Conduit street to see the familiar shops, cafes and restaurants closed, not knowing when they'll reopen.  Coram's Fields is now a car park. Even getting into the GP's surgery requires multiple security checks. Not forgetting the disconcerting feeling about not being able to get a delivery slot from the supermarket.

However, the strong community of Holborn pulls together.  Neighbours have been sharing goods (possibly even pasta and toilet rolls), and a single supermarket delivery can supply a few neighbours with essential groceries.  An occasional check up phone call keeps us feeling connected to our community. 

Even NASA has a role to play.  A growing number of people have taken to spotting the International Space Station as it flies over in the evening.  You may be an astrophysist , but HV isn't - we signed up the the email alerts - pop in your postcode and they'll send you exact times and positioning.  It's an easy and exciting spot to see the bright star-like object fly overheard from the Brunswick towards Clerkenwell, probably heading towards the Old Street roundabout.

Camden council has a number of dedicated webpages with updates on council services -

Don't forget to wash your hands frequently, stay inside, and if you do have to go out practice social distancing.
