What to do in Lock-down?
The hardest part is probably keeping the kids occupied, there are plenty of home learning plans, we have come up with a few ideas for young and old.
If you are interested in what Putney and Wandsworth were like years ago there is no better way to lean than checking out the Wandsworth Historical Society website, www.wandsworthhistory.org.uk
There are literally hundreds of things to do in lockdown, If art and culture is your thing then visit a museum or gallery from you armchair, such as, Victoria and Albert museum;
British Museum, www.britishmuseum.org; or a little further afield, you can’t fly there but you can take a virtual tour of The Hermitage in St Petersburg; www.hermitagemuseum.org, or ‘fly’ west to MoMA, the New York Museum of Modern Art; www.moma.org; if these are not far enough away buckle up and take a trip to The Art Gallery of New South Wales; www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au, any homesick Aussie can take a look at 275 works depicting their continent.
Things we have been doing include, contacting old friends who we have not seen for a while, sorting out our clothes, clearing cupboards and bagging up for charity shops when they re-open.
Have you ever tried Meditation? Now is the perfect time, plenty of advice and videos online.
Want to help those who need it? Give to food banks which you can deposit at most local supermarkets.

Learn to play an instrument
