Signpost 49 (12 April)

Welcome back to Signpost. This is our 49th edition, and since we started sending you these regular updates so much has changed. From this week, shops, community centres and other services are re-opening and are cautiously following the roadmap into the summer.

We would like to hear from you about how you have found the last 49 issues of Signpost. What kinds of things would you like to see? As lockdown comes to an end do you still want to hear from us? Please email us at to help us plan for the future.

This week in 1881, The Natural History Museum in London was opened. In 1935 the first flight of the Bristol Blenheim, a British light bomber aircraft designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company that was used extensively in the early days of WW2, took place. During this week in 1946 English actress Hayley Mills was born, and in 1968 American oil tycoon Robert McCullough bought London Bridge for one million pounds.
