It's a strange time - pubs, restaurants and shops are closed and we're all social distancing.

So what do you do if it's your birthday? Not much fun, is it?

A few of us at the Mail will be celebrating our birthdays in the next couple of weeks. And that gave us an idea.

If someone you love is celebrating their birthday during coronavirus shutdown, why not give them a shout-out?

Share some positive news and wish them a Happy Birthday via the Oxford Mail.

Like, Ellie, pictured, who turned 18 on Saturday. Her mum Joanne sent in this photograph of fizz in the grounds of Blenheim. It wasn't quite the birthday they had planned, but at least the sun was shining!

On behalf of everyone at the Mail, many happy returns to you, Ellie!
