    Update for you Hazel - all done and dusted and I've got my pass. Very quick and easy but I was already registered for online services (booking appts, requesting repeat prescriptions etc) so it was just a case of matching the details I gave with those already held online to confirm it was definitely me.

    I did it through the NHS App on my phone (different to the NHS Covid App used to log in to venues etc) and requested a Travel Pass be sent by email which I can forward to the organisers.

    The pass is essentially a QR or barcode and you get one for each jab. The pass is only valid for 30 days (to protect your privacy).

    If you think you'll need one at some stage I'd suggest you get yourself sorted out now with an NHS log in (& the App if you use a smart phone) and ensure you've gone through the enhanced proof of ID procedures. Once that's all set up it's really quick to get your pass whenever you need it.

    Hello folks … late on parade this morning as we were preparing the garage for our smart meters to be fitted .., and then the electricity and consequently the wifi was off. However ‘things’ have just sprung to life 👍 … just the gas meter to do now ….

    Oops! Meant to ask yesterday - @Busy-Lizzie - which nursery did you go to yesterday please? Always interested to know of ones within striking distance🙂
    It was Didlington Nurseries, north of Mundford on the A134.

    I've been to Specsavers, eye test and ordered new reading glasses. Distance is still OK.

    T'Bird, I got mine that way (dreams of a French trip) but hadn't realised they only have a short life. Never mind, all the spade work has been done and I just have to renew it when necessary. The good thing is that I have had the accepted AZ variant.

    Hazel, we have never been asked in pubs/restaurants for Covid passes. When your neighbour puts the tarpaulin down make sure he doesn't crush/break your plants underneath it.

    I am green with envy. Just had a text and a picture from my sis and bro-in-law at their van in France. They finally made it out there and she says that the atmosphere is very relaxed.

    Evening everyone, 
    It turned out to be a very warm sunny afternoon. Did a bit of weeding and deadheading. Its still quite warm now. 
    Do hope your garden doesn't get damaged @Songbird-1 when your neighbour cuts the hedge. 
    I haven't seen any snails in the garden this year either. 

    Footie has finished, now OH is watching Rugby. 
    Hope your sister and BIL have a lovely holiday @Ladybird4
  • LB how lovely for some of your family to be relaxing in France.  It will bring back memories of when you were last there.   Hazel I hope all goes well with the hedge cutting.  Goodnight everyone.

    Hazel - Individual companies / event organisers / pubs etc can decide whether or not they require Covid 'passports'. Generally not.

    We're going to a music festival next week where quite a few people will be camping on site and socialising for 4 or 5 days. Understandable the organisers want either proof of vaccinations or negative test results before allowing people on site.

    You'll probably still need an 'NHS login' - but the enhanced proof of ID will be fast tracked if they can link the NHS App with the App or other system you use for repeat prescriptions etc. I suggest you just get the NHS App and get yourself set up. Then it's easy to get a 30 day pass whenever you need one.

    LB - hope sis & BIL  have a great break. In view of the latest announcement re Spanish islands we're still resigned to UK holidays this year. Too risky on the quarantine front and the tests just make it too expensive.
