Today marks a day of reflection up and down the nation

This time last year, the first nation-wide lockdown was introduced to combat the rise of Covid-19 cases in the UK.

Today marks an opportunity to reflect on everything we have been through in that time, and here at West Lindsey District Council, our thoughts are particularly with everyone we have lost during the global pandemic, and to everyone who has suffered with great loss during that time.

Chief Executive of West Lindsey District Council, Ian Knowles, said: “Today offers an opportunity for us all to reflect, as individuals but also as communities, on everything we have been through so far during this period of time. So many of us have suffered great tragedies and sorrow over the past 12-months, and together as one at the council, we offer our heartfelt thoughts, wishes and prayers to everybody in our communities – and in the wider community – who has suffered great loss over these past months.

“Let’s hope the next 12-months offers us more hope, so that we can all come together and remember those we have lost properly when the time is right; I certainly hope that, very soon, I will be able to reflect on the past year with my own staff, in-person, when it is safe and possible to do so.”
