New Years Message from the Chairman of Wavendon Parish Council

Published: 31 December 2020

New Year’s Message
This year has been uniquely challenging and difficult. We have seen the worst public health emergency in a century as Covid-19 spread and the nation entered the first of several lockdowns on March 23.
2020 will shortly be coming to an end. I do not suppose that many people in Wavendon will regret its passing.
The normal patterns of everyday living, working, shopping, seeing family and friends has not been possible.
The latter has been particularly upsetting over the Christmas period. Many people have lost their employment and businesses have sadly closed as the pandemic severely impacts our economy.
Despite these awful circumstances we have all seen inspiring service from NHS and social care staff and in fact from everyone who works hard to keep our society functioning.
As we enter 2021 we all hold on to hope for a better year to come for ourselves, families and communities.
2021 will be better!
Vaccines will be available to minimize the threat posed by Covid-19.
Although we shall never be able to ignore the virus which, I suspect like influenza will always be a feature of life in the future, we shall return to a safer normality.
2021 will be better!
To you all I wish a safe, peaceful and prosperous New Year.
Chairman- Wavendon Parish Council
Cllr David Hopkins
