Lockdown Series: COVID-19 Sacrosanct spaces

Updated: Sep 16, 2022

It was lovely to see how Cambridge opened the normally sacrosanct spaces up for use so people could come to the city centre, support local businesses and still maintain social distancing. Especially lovely was to see the front lawn of King's College allow access and on dry days you would see people in socially distanced groups enjoying a bought lunch or coffee. Another space that I particularly enjoyed was the private garden of St Bene't's Church which I have never seen but lunch bought at Bread&Meat got you a pass. Kettle's Yard set up tables and chairs in the grounds of St Peter's - for regulars to the gallery it is a further extension to using the church for art installations. Coffee Bug took over the All Saints Garden which is normally used for the Craft Market and great to see it having another life without the tourists.
