Last year I wrote:
"We should not write off 2020 as the worst of the worst and try to forget it. Hopefully we have learned many things from the struggle of the last few months. History doesn't have to be 20, 50, 100 or 200 years ago. History is yesterday. 2020 is a history we should not forget. Many, many people made it what it was, for good or bad. Many experienced loss, mental anguish, hope, new friendships and a strengthening of the human spirit. 2020 was History with a capital H. Let's not forget it, but let us not be a slave to it. 2021 is a New Year and more history in the making".
Unfortunately, we have fared little better in 2021 and now, at the end of the year, when we would all like to be celebrating with family and friends, another Covid variant has emerged to threaten us all.
It is still unbelievably difficult for those working in our National Health Service and for those suffering from Covid and those affected by it.
However you celebrate this time of year, it is still everyone's wish for a
happier, healthier, safer New Year. Don't lose Hope.
From all the Team at West Watford History Group
we wish you a very Merry Christmas
