We have endured some terrible weather this week and some of our Council staff have been working around the clock to keep you safe and informed, but the signs of spring are there.
We’re currently living through the most challenging set of circumstances that most of us have ever known.
We’re heading into spring but we’re not there yet could be a metaphor for the current Covid-19 situation.
A fifth of our way through the 21st century, you’d expect that our understanding and tolerance of our fellow human beings would be improving.
As we continue to toil under the Covid-19 restrictions it’s difficult to see a return to “normal” and we realise that it’s likely that some things we took for granted will never be the same again.
As Scotland continues in lockdown we’re all a bit fed up with being cooped up. But we urge you to stick with the current restrictions. Please stay home, stop the spread, and save lives.
They say that a week is a long time in politics. Clearly a month amidst Covid-19 is a very long time indeed.
It has been a different festive period for all of us and the start of 2021 has found us back in lockdown again despite our collective and individual best efforts over the course of 2020.
It’s a welcome return to our Community Bulletin after the festive period, so let us take this opportunity to wish you a happy new year.
After what has been a truly dramatic year, we are now entering a period when we would normally be partying with family and friends. However, this year we will all have a most unwelcome guest: Covid-19, a highly contagious and deadly virus.
