It could be as warm as 13°C this Saturday and Sunday in Chesterfield, according to forecasts which predict sunny weather with a gentle breeze.

This would be good news for punters and shoppers looking to enjoy the newly reopened pubs and restaurants and make the most of their outdoor seating areas over the weekend, along with retail shops which welcomed back customers earlier this week on April 12.

Residents are only allowed to socialise outside, in either groups of six or as two households, until coronavirus rules ease again in line with the Government’s road map out of lockdown on May 17.
