A message from Helen on Coronovirus

To those who have lost a beloved member of you family I send my great sympathy and love and to those who are ill my thoughts are with you all.Like the environmental effects we have had on the planet, nature once again brings us together in a fight for survival.  This occurrence, unlike anything any of us have experienced in our lifetimes, is so hard to come to understand. I just hope the first lesson will be how much we owe to our first responders, the doctors, the nurses and hospital workers, so that in the future there will be no more votes against pay rises for these heroines and heroes. There is a tiny silver lining to the dark cloud, and that is community. Thank you to all those who are looking out for others, and all those brave people who are keeping all essential services running. Again, I hope your courage and commitment is never forgotten. Be as safe as you can, this will pass.
