Get ready for your socially distanced barbecue with our cheap ’n’ cheerful tips


FINALLY, we are allowed to see our loved ones again . . . albeit outside.

But before you head off for a socially distanced barbecue, there are some rules you have to follow.

With barbecues and outdoor parties around the corner, there are some rules to follow so we give you plenty of cheap ’n’ cheerful ways to do so

Including the fact you shouldn’t share plates and cups with others from outside your household.

This means you need to get prepped.

There are plenty of cheap ’n’ cheerful ways to do so . . .

TAKE A SEAT: Bag two camping chairs for £12 at B&M or £7 for one — the lowest price I have seen.

If you use somebody else’s chair, do clean it thoroughly before and after use.

Or be at one with nature and settle the kids down on a picnic blanket.

I like a tartan one from B&M for £5.

COCKTAIL CHAMP: Enjoy a drink or two with the Vintage Company drinks dispenser, reduced to £12.49 from £24.99 at

It is great for filling with your favourite drink, such as Pimm’s.

Grab a second dispenser and fill it with fruity water for the kids.

You need to bring your own plates and cutlery, you can grab bargain ones at Poudland for just £1

POP THE CORK: Being allowed to see our loved ones calls for prosecco!

Get a bottle of I Heart Prosecco for £7 from, down from £8.50.

While you are at it, add eight plastic flute glasses for £2 — far less than Marks & Spencer’s £9.50 four-pack.

GRAB A PLATE: Bring your own plates and cutlery.

Get paper plates and cups in Poundland’s tropical range for £1.

WIPE OUT: To safely enjoy your barbecue, remember to follow social distancing rules — and keep cleaning.

I found hand santiser for £1.25 at and 40 antibacterial wipes at for £1.
