The year 2020 has been challenging and difficult for so many. Covid has changed the way in which we must function and in my mind has not left one life untouched.

The residents of Bridgnorth have quite simple shone through this pandemic, showing what a fantastic community spirit we have in our town. We have all continually looked with great resilience at how to adapt.

As the vaccines roll out, Dr Swallow and his committed team at our surgery are working round the clock to deliver and for that we are grateful. This is an apt time to thank all the tremendous efforts of the NHS staff, the emergency services and all that continued to service during lockdown and continue to do so now.

Thanks to my fellow Councillors, all the staff working hard at the Town Council offices and to the Direct Labour Force out and about ensuring normal services are provided.

And finally, I wish you all a very safe and happy Christmas and here’s to 2021, may we all look forward with HOPE.
