Our Devon holiday park is full of smiling faces: the beginning of the end of lockdown
As holiday lets reopen in England, our writer reports from one north Devon resort where there’s an air of celebration among tourists and staffOne night in January, I was at a low ebb in a period of particularly low ebbs, when a friend messaged to say she’d booked a caravan in Croyde for the last week of the Easter school holidays. She and her husband had crunched the data on vaccine distribution and the likely effects of lockdown on hospital admissions, and felt it was worth taking a chance.I was less optimistic, but Parkdean Resorts, which operates Ruda Holiday Park in north Devon, has a Covid policy that meant we could shift the trip to another time of year if things hadn’t opened up by then – though you do have to pay the difference in price for your stay. I transferred the deposit for our family of four, thinking October half-term seemed more realistic. Continue reading...

Hideki Matsuyama’s Masters win set to boost home interest in golf at Olympics
Masters champion could light cauldron at Tokyo GamesGolf’s return to Olympics hit by withdrawals at Rio 2016Golf’s rocky relationship with the Olympic Games hardly looked like improving when Dustin Johnson, the world No 1, confirmed he would skip the chance to participate in Tokyo. Johnson was, in fact, pretty dismissive over the very concept. The sport’s return to the Olympics in 2016 was overshadowed by a host of high-profile withdrawals, with nervousness within the International Golf Federation regarding the 2021 version wholly understandable as Johnson opted out.Enter Hideki Matsuyama. Historic Masters glory for the 29-year-old Japanese player on Sunday has added a fresh, positive dynamic to golf and the Tokyo Games. Nick Faldo, the six-times major champion, has already speculated that Matsuyama might be selected to light the Olympic cauldron in July. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on mental health: this emergency requires a response | Editorial
As Britain unlocks, we ignore psychiatrists’ warnings about the psychological impact of Covid at our perilThe toll on the UK’s mental health caused by the pandemic is becoming much clearer. The dismaying, if unsurprising, news as shops and businesses reopen is that fears that Covid would result in higher levels of mental illness have been borne out. What is particularly disturbing about the warning issued by the Royal College of Psychiatrists on Friday is that it most strongly applies to children. There were 80,226 more under-18s referred to NHS mental health services in England between April and December last year than in the same period in 2019. The number of children and young people needing emergency care rose 20% to 18,269, while the number of adults needing emergency treatment reached a record high of 159,347.Parity of esteem for mental health was supposedly enshrined in law in the 2012 Health and Social Care Act. But the promise was not fulfilled. Five years later, Theresa May named the lack of support for people with mental illnesses as one of the “burning injustices” that she hoped her premiership would address. But the prospect of measures such as legal limits on waiting times for talking therapies, which have long been in place for A&E and other hospital treatments, appears more remote than ever. Instead, research consistently points to the enormous difficulty of accessing services. Anne Longfield, the former children’s commissioner for England, published analysis showing that more than a third of those referred to child and adolescent mental health services received no treatment; another third waited more than a year.

The Guardian view on the Tokyo Olympics: must the show go on?
With coronavirus surging in Japan and internationally, this summer’s Games are a risky prospectAs coronavirus swept the globe last spring, Japan portrayed the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics until this summer as an opportunity as well as a necessity. The delayed Games would be the light at the end of the tunnel; a celebration of humanity’s victory over Covid.With around 100 days to go, that promise now looks not merely optimistic, but flat wrong. The Olympics are approaching amid a resurgence of the virus and the opposition of the vast majority of the host nation. Grumbles are a familiar part of the Games cycle, dispelled as momentum builds in the final weeks. But the current concerns go far beyond the usual worries about slow ticket sales or uncompleted venues. Continue reading...
