WITH families cracking out the Easter eggs and lockdown restrictions loosening, everyone appears that much happier this week.

Under Boris Johnson's roadmap out of lockdown, from Monday [March 29] people have been allowed to socialise outside of their household bubbles.

The rule of six is now back in force, meaning people will be allowed to meet outdoors in groups of six - or as two households if that number exceeds six.

These photos, sent in by our readers, show some of you have already started reconnecting with family and friends after spending months apart, while others are getting back into group exercise.

Hopefully, we won't have too long to wait until restrictions are loosen again on April 12, which will see pubs open their beer gardens once again.
