As the spread and effects of COVID-19 continue to increase our thoughts and best wishes go to all those suffering and to those working so hard to help the nation through this huge battle, particularly all those involved in providing health services and medical research. We have worked extensively with the NHS for the past 25 years, so have understanding of the huge challenges this outbreak has caused and also the great ability of those delivering the services, non clinical as well as of course the front line Clinical. We will continue to do all we can to help them. As we ourselves are experiencing, this is also a hugely challenging time for our local businesses and organisations, large and small coming on top of months of flooding disruption. In particular the many food producers in our locality, have a vital role to play in keeping the nation going and we will continue to offer them our support. These are tough times and the management challenges so difficult but as the saying goes, when you are in the middle of a storm, don’t stop, keep going and hopefully we can all enjoy calmer waters very soon.
