Welcome to this festive edition of The Church Street Chronicle, and the final one for this year (hurray! I hear you shout!) At the time of writing, we are just a week away from the latest national restrictions being lifted on the 2nd December, and the government has announced its “12 rules for Christmas”. Essentially, the rules will be relaxed for a five-day period between the 23rd-27th December, allowing for up to three households to form a temporary “Christmas bubble”, and travel restrictions will be lifted to allow people to visit their families anywhere in the UK.
I know for many of you this will come as welcome news, allowing for much needed and long-overdue time to be spent with family and friends.
We don’t know what our plans are for his year, but to know that we can meet with parents/parents-in-law, grannies and grandads will be a much-needed boost and provide some semblance of normality for us.
Whatever your plans are for Christmas 2020, I’d like to wish you all a very happy and safe one and wish you all the very best for a happy and healthy New Year.
