Restaurant & Market Deliveries and Open Services

If your business is allowed to operate during the lockdown, send in your details for inclusion to let Readers know. If you know for certain a restaurant is still delivering (none should be offering take-away at this point), have them send in the details including Name of Restaurant, Location, Phone Number, Hours and a photo of their menu (optional). Unfortunately I have received some inaccurate info from well meaning 3rd parties which has caused problems. So now these businesses must submit their own posts, although I will in this case allow them to post even if they are not subscribers. -Ed.

Recommendations & Requests

Driving back to the U.K: I would be grateful if anyone can give me information or where I can obtain information on the rules of driving back to the U.K. under the present circumstances. My Wife and I are U.K. residents.
As I understand only one person can be in the front row of seats
The second person must travel in the second row of seats furthest from the driver.
I really need the space in the second row of seats to take our possession back to the U.K. and also need my wife in the front to help me with navigation
Many thanks in advance
