The government's plans for lifting the country out of lockdown were finally revealed yesterday (Monday, February 22) - and we'd love to know what you think about them.

Are you looking forward to getting life back to normal again? What are you looking forward to most?

We'd also like to know what local businesses think, especially those who have been affected by the lockdown restrictions.

The government has published a series of graphics detailing each of the four stages of lifting lockdown.

Outdoor sport is set to return from Monday, March 29, along with outdoor children's activities.

This is great news for a lot of organisations, including Alfreton Town Juniors FC.

Club secretary Danny Bennett said: "The club are pleased with the government announcement and are excited to get the children back out playing football.

"The club will ensure they comply with the government and FA guidance upon its release and ensure the return is done safely and following all guidance.

"While it has been a very different and challenging time for all, the coaches will be happy to welcome everyone back and keep our fingers crossed for some good weather as the restart approaches."

The Dog at Pentrich:

"We are delighted that lockdown is finally easing and we can soon welcome our customers once more. We are disappointed it remains 'outside only' in April as we are well practiced at maintaining social distancing measures inside. We will now be weighing up our plan for the initial easement over the next few days but be assured our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Looking forward to better times ahead. Further announcements will be made shortly"
