Fancy a BBQ? These are the best deals for meat, beer and everything else at Sheffield supermarkets including Aldi, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco

Now that spring is here and we can meet a group of friends or two households outside, the time for alfresco dining has well and truly arrived.

Monday, 29th March 2021, 4:48 pm

From today (Monday, March 29) people are permitted to make non-essential journeys and groups of up to six people or two households can meet outside, providing social distancing guidelines are adhered to.

As part of the easing of restrictions, groups can meet in a private garden.

And with a mini heatwave forecast for Sheffield, what better time to bust the barbecue out and make the most of the spring sunshine with your loved ones?
