LETTER: Beaches are the safest place to be right now
Don’t make arbitrary laws that people resent if you want co-operation
Why would the government want to deny access to beaches during the lockdown? It doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s not as though beaches are ever crowded except during the Christmas season.
If people are outside on the beach with a breeze blowing, or swimming or surfing in the sea, it is probably one of the safest outside places to be.
If laws are made that don’t appear to be fair it can cause people who want to co-operate resent them.
