I thought I’d leave you alone for August, not least because there was no Parliament to report on and while the casework continued unabated I did less meetings and visits than usual, so had less to tell you about.
Steve Cook bought the Walter Rose and Son butchers shop, at the end of Sidmouth Street in Devizes, when he was 21. Now silver-haired (but buzzing with vim and vigour) he tells me what lockdown has meant for him.
Last week Parliament returned to physical meetings - no more Zooming in from your bedroom to the House of Commons chamber - which caused some head-scratching about how to vote while socially distanced.
One of the consolations of lockdown for me has been the opportunity to watch a whole season pass. For you long-term Wiltshiremen and women this will seem perfectly normal, but I don’t think I have spent two uninterrupted months in the countryside since I was a child.
