We’ve learnt a lot during the Coronavirus emergency. We’ve discovered behind the scenes heroes on our team of Council officers who day-in, day-out keep us safe; providing vital services and making extraordinary efforts to serve our district, even in the most challenging of circumstances.
Welcome news this week that the Government have eased the lockdown, albeit in limited and targeted ways. This important step also marks the beginning of our road to recovery, when we expect to encounter further challenges and opportunities.
Like you all, I am currently living through this unprecedented period of “lockdown” at home. Although frustrating, it is the only way we can beat this terrible pandemic, and then return to life as normal.
