The easing of restrictions on Monday (March 29) saw the “stay at home” order come to an end.

Groups of up to six, or two households, can socialise in parks and gardens once more, while outdoor sports facilities can reopen after the stay-at-home order ended on Monday.

Football and cricket pitches, tennis and basketball courts, outdoor swimming pools, golf courses and sailing clubs are now free to reopen after months of being shut.

Organised team sports can also resume outdoors, meaning grassroots competitions can take place ahead of the Easter break without the need for social distancing.

You no longer need an excuse to justify going out, and there is no specific limit on how far you can travel - but the Government is advising people to stay local and urging the public to use their common sense.

These are ten things that people across Sheffield can enjoy doing once again.
