Covid restrictions and lockdown continued as cases of infection increased, but a glimmer of hope appeared on the horizon as vaccinations started to be rolled out to the elderly and those at risk.

Volunteers continued their fine work in the parish, helping deliver essential supplies to those unable to obtain them.

People walked and cycled more than ever before as exercise was recognised as crucial to health and well being; the playing field remained open and well used.
