As we get to New Year we wanted to say a special thank you to all of the people who have made life in Adderley so special in this year of pandemic and lockdown. Some of them you all know and some work quietly away in the background.
Despite the restrictions of lockdown we have had an amazing year with things to enjoy that have brought us together as a community. People have had flowers to enjoy round the village and the surrounding countryside has provided us with a lovely environment. The Book Shelter has become a place to swap and share – someone has kept it tidy and safe. The WhatsApp group has helped people with shopping and prescriptions and there are all those people who have shouted over the fence: “Are you alright?” just to make sure.
Hopefully, by this time next year things will be closer to normal though we suspect that many of the things that have happened this year will become regular features of the village calendar.
The people who have quietly organised in the background are too many to mention but they know who they are and we thank them all. In the meantime we hope you will enjoy the video which picks up some of the highlights of 2020, the year in lockdown.
