We will join the rest of the country in holding a minutes silence to pay our respects to those who have lost their lives to Covid-19 at midday today. 

As the Head of the NHS said, "It's also a moment to acknowledge how in adversity we saw strength, as friends, neighbours and communities have come together to help each other... While we need continuing vigilance against this virus, the remarkable NHS vaccination programme now brings hope of better times to come." 

Take care, everyone.
