Alex Kemp and Lilybet Holt enjoyed a drink on a warm evening at Edinburgh Gardens as they contemplated life without lockdown. “It’s kind of nice thinking that the world is returning to some kind of normal,” said Ms Kemp. “I think if we were just kind of opening up out of like a lockdown again like we did last year, I’d be way more apprehensive, but I have a lot of faith in like the ability of the vaccine and the science.”
