Was this a terrible breach or OK on a common sense basis?

A group of us usually, in normal times, meet up once a week for outdoor exercise. Obviously not in recent weeks but this week was the first time it was possible, subject to the group of six rule.

Although the are c 12 of us in total, usually, not everyone comes every week and confirmed numbers suggested there would be 6. In the event, everyone turned up and there were 12.

We met at a remote location, saw no one else at all while we were out and easily maintained the 2m distance. It would be hard not to doing this activity.

There's been lots of discussion. Whilst I can see it was not within the rules, we have been encouraged to use common sense and outdoors, well spaced, I can't see that there was much risk. None of us would have had enough contact (within 2m for 15 mins) to have to report it to a contact tracer for example.

I personally can't see how it's any different to two groups of six meeting as long as you all really stayed at least 2metres apart from everyone else.

Can't get very worked up about this if everyone stayed 2 metres away from everyone else at all times. After all, you could have split into two groups of six and that would have been legal.

I would only really worry that if there was an instructor their insurance may have been invalidated.

I went to my first real life exercise class since the lockdown Monday and as great as online classes are they are nothing on the real thing. (Plus I rather liked the 2m space and nobody getting in my personal space)

Wouldn’t bother me. I’d do the same.
