A woman who lives in Bourne End has pleaded with the public to social distance as the coronavirus continues to spread.

Lynne Revel, who has lived in the village since 2004, posted an emotional plea on Facebook for people to not ignore the new rule, as her husband, Mick, is one of the 1.5 million people who is vulnerable to the illness.

In her post which was published on March 24, she said: “Given the circumstances we all find ourselves in, it’s not a nice day for some.

“However, we are all in this together and we must all pull together to get rid of this virus once and for all.

“I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away for you but I can’t.

"It’s a testing time for us all especially if we have a routine.

“But it will be mentally challenging for me all the same.

“I won’t see my daughter for three months but like I have said to her we cannot let this evil thing get to us.

“Stay strong everyone and most of all stay safe lets beat this.”

This comes after Lynne revealed that she had struggled to buy certain essentials such as eggs, where she saw one shop sell them for £9 per carton.

She also expressed her anger that people were still not social distancing, despite the Government’s orders.

Speaking on social media, she said: "I'm so, so angry there are so many people out and about and that there are so many cars on the road.

"I really feel sorry for my husband who has to stay in."

And following the current pandemic, Lynne wanted to cheer her husband up as he felt 'down' due to the situation.

So what did she do?

She baked him a trifle.

She said: “Whenever my husband Mick gets a little down I always make a trifle or a sponge cake to cheer him up.

“It works every time.

"I’m not a brilliant cook, but I like to experiment.

“I used to watch my grandma cook and I learned quite a lot from her.

“She lived through two world wars and she used to tell me how they had to improvise on what provisions they had.”
