Perhaps today’s news that the Glastonbury Festival in mid-summer has been cancelled might bode ill for the prospect of opening cricket grounds from early April?

I’m sure the Government will be under great pressure to have the tier system back by Easter ( early April) so fingers crossed we can definitely get cricket up and running and maybe with limited spectators.

Comment by Nick

Not sure that crowds at Glasto can be compared with the few hundred likely to be watching at the Ageas Bowl!

Comment by Stuart T

I’m sure that’s right Stuart for all kinds of reasons and maybe only a few hundred to watch the Championship, although after the past year people might be desperate to see anything. I suspect the T20 and Hundred might be less secure.

I am not expecting anything until July for spectators, probably not until everyone has been vaccinated? I expect the matches may go ahead earlier but of course, the weather will have a say in that as well.

Comment by Bill Seager

Hopefully we may have a situation whereby entry can be obtained by production of your vaccination certificate and a receipt of a negative test .

Comment by Peter Jeffs

That’s a possibility, let’s hope so Peter. There again, I’m off to get my first one this afternoon which means that by the time my 12 weeks is up for number two, the season will already be two weeks old.

With the usual temperatures suffered at the start of the season we may well welcome masks as an extra layer!

At our surgery we have already vaccinated over 95% of our over 80’s & are well into the 75-79 group. If we can continue at this pace we will have the top 4 vulnerable groups vaccinated (with one shot at least) by the start of the season. It is a huge challenge but one we are working around the clock to meet.

I’m staying positive for some actual visits to the Bowl this year rather than just virtual

That’s good stuff Jo but a warning from this bit of Pompey. I’m only 71 but I got my jab on Thursday evening – great I thought. I’m also a volunteer for the ONS survey, I get tested every month and the last one was last Saturday. So the morning after my jab I get a letter about the latest test telling me I’m Positive. So now I’m isolating, can’t do anything, can’t go anywhere. No idea if the jab will help after the fact and I have NO symptoms but who knows?
