I hope you are well and had an enjoyable week.
Today marks another important date in the UK’s easing of lockdown measures. I’m sure that this will be met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension by all. Whatever your plans in the coming weeks, I hope that you all keep safe and enjoy having some more freedom to meet friends and loved ones. I will be visiting my local pub after work this evening to have a long-awaited ‘cold one’, let’s hope that the snow holds off!
I also wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the sad news of HRH Prince Philip’s passing last Friday. He was an inspirational member of the Royal Family for many and his legacy will live on for generations to come.
I hope you enjoy today’s newsletter.
