Latest Issue - July 2021
Whilst I am looking forward as much as anybody to the relaxation of regulations pertaining to Coronavirus, I can’t help but be concerned about the media using the term ‘freedom day’, especially as the declared number of new infections has increased significantly over the last couple of weeks. Whilst it is true that hospitals have seen fewer Covid patients, and deaths have declined hugely, Covid remains a nasty illness. Further, it can lead to ‘long Covid’, which renders the patient suffering from all sorts of symptoms, mainly fatigue, for weeks, months, and possibly years. The numbers in this category are thought to be greatly underestimated. My point is that ‘freedom day’ is NOT a return to normal. Taking sensible precautions will be necessary for a long time to come.
On a brighter note, the village has been an obvious attraction to many visitors, particularly during the sunny weather. This is good for businesses. And village activities are starting to show some green shoots, with Open Gardens, Duck Races, the Village Show, and Craft Fair.
I hope that you enjoy a good summer - we all deserve it after the last 18 months!
