Welcome to LINK online. If it’s the first time you’ve visited the site, simply click on the cover image above to view the online version of the magazine. 2020 has been a year like no other. A second period of lockdown is coming to an end, but the tier system that preceded it will still be in place and probably tougher than before. There are, though, reasons to be cheerful. Vaccines for COVID 19 are now on the horizon and infection rates are falling, but beyond that the reaction of the people in our parish to the threat of the virus has been something to cheer. In this issue we look back on 2020 and look at the good things that have happened, the camaraderie, the friendships, the help that people have given each other and the spirit that the virus has engendered in the people of our Parish.


You’ll notice that the online version contains links – so if you are on the contents page and want to look at the recipe, just click on the underlined blue text where it reads Page 16 and it will take you straight there.  You will see links throughout the magazine to take you to the web sites of societies in the parish, the web sites of advertisers and the web sites of local organisations.


During this month it should, once again, be possible to do the ordinary things that we used to think were normal but haven’t been for the past year and a half. We might be able to go to the cinema or the theatre, we might be able to order a drink at a bar, we might be able to go to church without sitting six feet apart, or go to a wedding or, for the younger people among us, even a night club. We might even have to go back to the office. All of those things might be possible. We should, though, remember some of the things that we have started to do in lockdown, things that we should continue to do, things like taking regular exercise and talking to our neighbours. We should also remember the people who weren’t able to work from home, the people who worked, on our behalf, throughout the pandemic. This issue of LINK is about all of those things; it’s about getting back to normal; it’s about getting out and about and it’s about the people who kept on working, about the bin men and the postmen and women and our milkman, and all of the other people who helped us to get through the last eighteen months. We owe them a debt of gratitude.
