Geoff Robb (Letters, March 18) is absolutely right. Golfers can and do self isolate - as long as they don’t spend time in the 19th Hole.!

Government advice that over 70s should self isolate at home could mean many lonely pensioners. Going for walks or bike rides is a beneficial way of keeping healthy. I also recommend an allotment. These offer exercise and healthy food plus pleasant social contact talking at a safe distance across our plots. There are still some available in the York area...
