Sent a 'well done' email to 'Shailesh Vara' in response to his efforts to get fans back into stadiums, especially to Posh. Today received a reply. Good to know they look in their inbox.

Dear Mr Allen
Thank you for your email and kind words.
It really is important that we get spectators back into Posh’s stadium and I will certainly continue my efforts to try to do so.
I was also very pleased to be able to put on the record the fantastic work that the Peterborough United Foundation does for the local community and also to give recognition to all that the club does for the local economy.
I very much hope that you and your family are keeping well in these unprecedented times.
Take care.
Yours sincerely,
Shailesh Vara
Shailesh Vara MP"

Well done Dave. Everything helps and will help in the future. At least Posh are in a better position than most in the lower Leagues.

Can I suggest that as many supporters as possible email Mr Vaga? He seems to be a very agreeable MP!

According to the Daily Mail Australia

EXCLUSIVE: Football fans could be back in grounds BEFORE Christmas: DCMS wants to allow spectators in some stadiums when national lockdown is lifted, after Boris Johnson told MPs he was keen to 'bring crowds back'
Sources close to negotiations over the return of fans say officials at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have now submitted proposals to the Cabinet Office for spectators to attend games in areas where coronavirus infection rates are low, once the second national lockdown is lifted.
Is Peterborough and area where coronavirus infection rates are low?
