Name and age at time of lockdown
Steve Morecroft 51When did you first begin to realise that coronavirus was something out of the ordinary?
Beginning of March 2020When and how did it first impact you in a significant way?
100% home working and managing a team remotelyWhat were the biggest problems with coping with lockdown and how did you manage?
Lack of exercise & poor diet - I initiated an exercise regime and started managing caloriesWere there times you despaired?
Yes - I became very fed up with being at home all the time and being constantly in video calls. Productivity now seems to be measured by how many virtual meetings one can attend in a dayWhat keeps you / kept you going?
Hoping things will easeWhat was your lowest moment?
On the phone/video calls from 0815 to 1830 one day in JulyWhat was your best / funniest moment?
Watching my new kitten grow up and being there to see itDo you think the government is handling / handled the crisis satisfactorily?
Not particularly. They lack focus on scientific detail and put politics and dogma ahead of reasonWere you also affected by flooding on the night of February 9 and how have you coped with both problems?
Yes. I'm co-owner of the Dovecote Inn and I own one of the adjacent cottages, both of which were wrecked by the flood. Neither are fully repaired yet and restoration works at the Dovecote is progressing slowly due to the inertia of our landlords. Very frustrating.
