When I last communicated, back in the summer, I suggested that we were continuing to edge ever closer to the unlocking of the covid-19 restrictions and getting some semblance of normality back into our lives. As the number of the year changes from 2020 to 2021 it isn’t feeling like we are any closer after what has been for many, a tough festive period, separated from loved ones at what is usually such a special time of the year.
There is light at the end of the tunnel however, and with two vaccines now approved for distribution, the job of protecting the population has begun in earnest.
Once again, I want to express my thanks to you, our clients, for your continued support and to our dedicated staff for their tireless effort. We continue to operate from a mixture of office and home working, ensuring those most at risk are duly protected while maintaining the capacity to meet your requirements at all times. We long for the day when restrictions are lifted and we are able to welcome staff and clients alike back to the office and to meet with you in person again. It is vitally important for the mental well-being of us all to resume the face-to-face social interaction that drives creativity and verve, strengthens our bonds and, importantly, aids in the learning and career progression of the younger ones amongst us.
With 2020 now behind us, we look forward to being of continued service to you in 2021.
As always, if there are any issues you would like to raise with me personally, please do not hesitate to do so.
Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year. Stay safe and well.
