The importance of location when choosing your new home was sharply brought into focus during the lockdown period of Spring 2020. With people encouraged initially to leave the house once a day for exercise to help tackle the spread of Covid-19, proximity to green space became a key factor in the ability to comply with lockdown rules with ease.
Working from home or self-isolating, for the foreseeable future we are all going to be spending a great deal more time indoors. The events that have changed the face of the world in previous weeks have also created a temporary alteration in lifestyle and behaviour that has increased our need for social distancing and limiting unnecessary contact wherever possible.
There is no question that Smith’s Dock is a transformative development. The collection of contemporary properties has breathed new life into the former Smith’s Dock shipyard and revitalised the Western end of the North Shields Fish Quay in the process.
As the nation goes on lockdown to help in the fight against Covid-19 people are looking for different ways to keep themselves entertained at home. With bars, pubs and restaurants closed, residents of Smith’s Dock on the North Shields Fish Quay are inspiring others with their unique approach to keeping busy by creating a silent light disco to reach out beyond their four walls.
