Lockdahn Rules For Nottingum Fowuk

When looking at the title of this post you could be forgiven for thinking that my spell checker was turned off, but you’d be wrong.

I wrote it in the accent of a person living in Nottingham (well at least as far as it can be translated into text).
The accent is similar to those of a person that lives in Spennyriver, my fictional town. Or should that be Spennyriver is like Nottingham? If you’ve not been keeping up with the weekly shenanigans in this small town, you can check them out HERE.

But this post is about the rules of our new national lockdown, written in a way that Nottingham Residents can understand. Don’t panic, I will translate each rule into the Queen’s English so it makes sense. Let’s start off with the title of this post:
