With the impact of Covid-19, it is unlikely that life will return to previous ‘normal’ any time soon.
Therefore I am cancelling any preparation for our beloved Christmas Parade and the much appreciated Christmas Day community dinner.
It is unreasonable to give such a huge amount of time as is required, possibly in vain.
With the economic impact of lockdowns etc., I was expecting to fund the parade myself this year, knowing businesses and community organisations are struggling with reduced income. Instead I will endeavour to erect Christmas lights on the fronts of my buildings. Maybe others can do likewise to create some Christmas spirit in our community.
Covid -19 has changed the world, possibly for ever. Let’s do what we can to encourage community togetherness.
