    Do the villagers shop using home delivery only or do they go and endanger others away from where they live?

    We get the same in our village but it doesn’t even have a shop yet some of the residents put up signs telling people to walk their dogs where they live and don’t endanger villagers. I totally disagree with the insular attitude of those that would ban ‘incomers’ and thankfully now people are allowed to travel to take exercise the signs in our village have been removed.

    The local community council have put wash facilites at the entrance to the shop even so we can all was our hands on the way in and way out! So far the village seems to have stayed safe. That's good news because a lot of retired people live in the Lakes, and they are obviously very high risk. Just alon the road, Barrow in Furness is a local hot-spot for COVID
    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a9516636.html
    "It is one of England’s remotest towns – surrounded to the south, east and west by sea and to the north by the wilds of the Lake District.

    But it would seem such isolation has not protected Barrow-in-Furness from coronavirus.

    The industrial Cumbrian seaport has this week been revealed to have the highest infection rates anywhere in England and Wales.

    Government figures show some 553 people here have been diagnosed with Covid-19 – a rate of 823.7 cases per 100,000 people."
    On top of that, I am doing shopping for a couple of high-risk neighbours who are still self-isolating because they are in high-risk groups...

    It’s got plenty of places to try it, trouble is it’s already very busy with day trippers from the smoke

    But yes, there's a lot of distrust and fear of "outsiders" just now.
    Tbf my first thought was of ancient rivalries and I wonder if they'd said they were from Lancaster they may have got a different response
    You, however, are one of the most piss boiling, patronising, self-righteous wankers on the forum

    Anyone from outside the village itself is being considered a threat - people are scared.

    I’d have thought there’d have been a few people commute from Silverdale to BAe Systems in Barrow so how do they react to them or do they leave before 5am and return after 10pm?

    The only thing wrong with suggestion, in my opinion, is posting it here. Going on your own, keeping yourself to yourself seems more appropriate at the moment.

    Met a couple of guys who do worth for BAE, (observing social distancing) - the ones I met are working from home.

    And remember that the 'holiday home owners' now pay full council tax, just like the residents, so by rights they should be allowed to be there... or get a discount!

    Technically true, but in practice no problem if you don't take the piss.
