Over the summer, some of the roads in the middle of Hay were blocked off by barriers for some of the time to help with social distancing.

Now it seems that the scheme is becoming more permanent, as planters have appeared all around town in the places where the barriers used to be.

Today I went up to the market, and the junk/antique stall near the Clock Tower had utilised the nearest planter to display his garden tools.

We just got to the square at the right time to hear the Town Cryer celebrating the birthday of John Evans from the window of the flat over the Cheese Market - John has been involved in the Chamber of Commerce, and the Market, for many years.  Happy Birthday was sung for him in Welsh - penblwydd hapus.

In the Buttermarket this week there was a table selling second hand clothes in aid of the Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees group, which seemed to be quite popular.
