Gin O’clock at Little Horwood
Women from the village walk into Chrissie’s front garden and sit down. They’ve brought their own drinks, but sometimes they can be tempted to try a different gin. Chrissie is out of shot to the right, in the first two photos.
Later on that day at the Shoulder of Mutton pub, the landlord Lewis Huntington is delivering meals that customers ordered earlier.
He’s been doing this for some weeks, and delivers beer too. The beer deliveries started when he was caught with lots of beer in the pub, at the start of lockdown.
Lewis took over the pub with his daughter Tia in February this year, and they haven’t yet opened it under normal conditions. But the pub is now opening, following government guidelines.
Details of opening times are here. They say that booking is highly recommended on Friday and Saturday evenings, or for larger groups.
You can see all the other Distance Project photos I’ve put on the North Bucks Wanderer here, In the project I'm photographing what people are doing differently under lockdown.
Young families come up so their smaller children can play in the garden. There’s a tent full of toys (which you can see in the previous shots) and an art easel. It’s one family at a time, and everything is cleaned carefully before the next family can come and play.
