Social Distancing Signs edges ever closer to 20,000 sign downloads!

At the end of March, we decided to start producing Social DIstancing information signs that could be downloaded for free and printed for personal use.

Initially, it was a single sign; Social Distancing Saves Lives. Over the following days and weeks, we added more posters in different languages and with a variety of messages

At first, the signs were aimed at the general public, to display outside their homes to remind visitors to practice Social Distancing as a new concept to limit the spread of Coronavirus. It soon became clear, the businesses, schools and local authorities were downloading the signs and we quickly expanded the functionality to allow for customisation and with the help of local businesses began offering sign making and floor stickers commercially.

I was never sure how many of the signs would be downloads or indeed the level of traffic the website would receive, now, just over a month since I started counting, the Social Distancing Sign website is nearing 20,000 sign downloads!

It’s been a smashing success and a much-needed service for businesses and schools who have struggled to find the budgets to pay for expensive physical distancing and safety signs.

Easy Ways To Stay Entertained During Lockdown

Since working from home for the last few months, a lot of us have struggled to stay focused and not end up watching tv or doing odd jobs around the house. 

Whether you are furloughed or still working from home during the pandemic, there is a lot of free time where you will be bored and in need of entertainment. We want to help you stay entertained today with some simple ideas. 

Here are some of the things you can do to keep yourself occupied during the lockdown. 

Upgrade the TV 

Now and again the TV will need an upgrade, and during this pandemic you will want the best TV has to offer. This is why trying a Fibre Optic Network is a good idea to ensure you have access to all of the channels and streaming services you could possibly want. 

Download Disney Plus 

If you want some amazing films to watch as well as a healthy dose of nostalgia during the lockdown, Disney Plus is a must. It has all the Disney and Pixar classics, older movies you love, as well as The Simpsons, Star Wars and Marvel. There are so many things to watch using this service that you’ll easily get lost using it. 

Use Playstation Plus 

If you are a gamer and looking for something new to play online during lockdown, PlayStation Plus provides you with what you need. When you purchase this service you’ll get access to Call Of Duty World War II, and the online features of this game are amazing. From War missions to Team Deathmatches and Zombies, you’ll be kept entertained for hours as you play alongside people from all corners of the world. 

Download Audible 

If you have been spending a lot of time doing housework, gardening, or DIY during lockdown a great idea is to download Audible. Audible gives you access to thousands of books in audio form and you can listen to a compelling story while working on whatever project you want. It is a great way to keep the mind engaged and will give you some fun things to learn about and fantasy worlds to visit. 

Host a Zoom quiz 

Zoom is a staple for communication at the moment and everyone is using this service to keep in touch with colleagues and friends. If you are looking for the perfect way to stay in touch with your loved ones, Zoom allows you to share your screen and have quizzes. Create a PowerPoint with questions and picture rounds and enjoy spending some time with the people you love. 

Try technology-free games 

If you want to go a bit old fashioned during lockdown, there are plenty of games you can play without using technology. If you want to keep your brain active and working you can try building a jigsaw. You could play monopoly with your family, and there are lots of other board games to enjoy. 

Don’t be bored this lockdown and enjoy trying some new things!
