MY wife and I, both in our 80s, have been very diligent since March, following the government guidelines in order to both safeguard ourselves and avoid risking the spread of Covid-19 to family and friends alike.

We were appalled to see in the Echo the report and photo of the ‘protesters’ marching through the town centre on Saturday, December 19.

Totally irresponsible behaviour, no distancing, no masks, no common sense. Selfish, potential Covid ‘spreaders’.

The organisers should be punished. These people will escalate us into a higher tier, and worse.
