People who already have front gardens can also benefit from this scheme.

Feb 1 2021 Share

Captain Sir Tom Moore has been hospitalised while ill with COVID-19 to get help with his breathing. Moore is a World War II veteran, and an activist till this day.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Captain Sir Tom Moore raised millions for the UK National Health Service during the first lockdown.

The 100-year-old has been receiving hundreds of thousands of well-wishes after the news broke out about his being ill.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted,

My thoughts are very much with @CaptainTomMoore and his family. You’ve inspired the whole nation, and I know we are all wishing you a full recovery.”


39-year-old Zlatan scores a ninja esque goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The man, the myth, the high-flying ninja-kicking legend.
We’ve always known that the Swede superstar is inclined to do the odd acrobatic kick here and there, but with the striker now 39-year-old, you couldn’t be blamed for thinking he would start to get a bit rusty.
But that’s not the case with Zlatan. It seems that, year after year, the AC Milan forward is pushing boundaries that we did not know existed – scoring 12 goals in just 10 appearances so far this season.
Now, the prolific striker that compares himself to Benjamin Button, has just posted a video of himself scoring a ninja esque goal during a training session with AC Milan on his social media – proving his critics wrong once again.
