Simple new rule - only 6 people to meet. But it’s different in Scotland and different in Wales.
It’s ok to sit for hours in an aeroplane with a crowd of strangers or drink in a busy pub but a family of seven can’t meet even if one is a baby.
I just heard a mum being told off for picnicing with seven children and she pointed out that all the children had been together all day at school.
This “simple” rule is full of anomalies so people will ignore it.

If you are part of the huntin’ shootin’ set you can go off for jollies with 30 of your mates.

36 can use our local theatre
20 could have lunch together if that sat at different tables of 6 or less
