Iím struggling to see the correlation between getting the schools open and having to close the pubs to achieve that.
The suggestion is that both pubs and schools could act as potential to increase the risk of transmission (as both enable/require people from multiple households to mix and so ease the path of transmission) and that we can risk having one but not both.

When I went to school in Chippenham a couple of the older looking kids used to pop in the King Alfred opposite.

I used to drink in there during my sixth form days, then sporadically later as it was a mate's local. The indian there was/is decent, but a real shame to lose that pub.

I'm guessing you mean New Road? The Three Crowns is on the Causeway. The George's Railway(now flats) round the corner was the easiest place to get served underage in my day, and The George(Italian restaurant) across the road not much harder.

We were regulars at the Bear, the rosie and the riverside wine bar at around the age of 15.  John and Val at the Bear we're well aware and used to take our proud announcements of peoples 18th birthdays with a weary, oh you've only just turned 18.  Well aren't we surprised.
