Lockdown Anniversary Statement 2021

As we prepare to mark the one year anniversary since the Government first imposed a national coronavirus lockdown, we are reflective of how our community have pulled together during this time of crisis.

Following an appeal for volunteers in March 2020, a reassuring number of Newtown Linford residents, came forward to offer help and support to anyone affected by the pandemic and in isolation. It was at this time, the Newtown Linford Community Action Response (CAR) was born.

Volunteers continue to offer assistance to those in need by picking up shopping, collecting prescriptions, posting mail or for a friendly phone call.

Community spirit has shone throughout, despite the difficulties many have faced in their own lives over the past year and we are grateful to those who so kindly give their time to helping others through simple acts of kindness. We are proud to be part of such a caring and resilient community and we look forward to brighter times ahead.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to all those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19.

Newtown Linford Parish Council will be observing the one minutes' silence at 12 noon on National Day of Reflection, 23rd March 2021.
