Today we are joining millions across the country in a National Day of Reflection, marking one year since the first lockdown was announced. It is almost a year since we shared our early morning rainbow and today we are thinking about the challenges that we have all faced since then. We have taken time to remember all those who have sadly passed away…and time to thank the NHS and key workers…and time to think how lucky we are that we now have a vaccine.

We have learned that, although there have been times of anxiety and sadness, there have also been times of joy, resilience and so much togetherness…and now there is also hope!
