One year on from Lockdown I

This week the UK marked one year since the first coronavirus lockdown.  On 23rd March 2020, the Prime Minister announced restrictions on people’s lives aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19.

 

I don’t think I will ever forget the e-mail I sent to parents three days before the national lockdown, on 20th March, to say that school was closed - until further notice.  The support and understanding from staff and parents in the days, weeks and months that have followed have been a real testament to a community working together.

The Queen marked the anniversary by sending a bouquet of flowers to St Bartholomew's Hospital in London.  A message along with the flowers read: "As we look forward to a brighter future together, today we pause to reflect on the grief and loss that continues to be felt by so many people and families, and pay tribute to the immeasurable service of those who have supported us all over the last year."

 

The pandemic hasn’t yet ended but it continues to be encouraging seeing the pace at which the vaccine is being rolled out and hopefully the country will manage to hit the various milestones on the roadmap out of lockdown. JK
