Words from Chris J Robbins, Mayor of Warminster
Today marks the anniversary of the pandemic lockdown start date. This year has passed so quickly and although there is light at the end of the tunnel, we are still enduring restrictions neccessary to keep us safe. This day has been chosen a National Day of Reflection where all are called upon to mourn those lost to this dreadful disease. Everybody knows somebody whom has been affected by this suffering, whether family or friend.
We should take a moment to consider and reflect upon this year and if possible offer a helping hand to those persons struggling with their loss.
We should not forget our front line workers, the NHS and medical services and all groups whom have helped this year.
If you have ever read the book “Fifty days that changed the world” by Hywell Williams, any addition will include this pandemic for I think our lives will be slightly different from now on socially and at work.
Our condolences to all the families who have lost loved ones,
please continue follow government guidelines, get the vaccine and stay safe,
Chris J Robbins
