Covid-19 is still with us. It has devastated many lives and livelihoods, something which must never be underestimated nor forgotten.

I am very proud of what we have achieved as a council and as a community in the face of such unprecedented times.

As part of our response to Covid-19, we:

· Awarded £29.1 million in Government grants to 2,535 businesses.
· Contacted nearly 18,000 vulnerable residents personally to offer support and made 1,500 calls to vulnerable residents as part of our befriending programme.
· Supported more than 2,250 households through the Council Tax Hardship Fund.

I know that many people in our communities were personally involved in supporting our communities in a number of ways, so I would like to put on record my personal thanks to everyone for the part you have played in this collective success.

Our thoughts and prayers go to all those who have lost someone to this terrible virus, and to those in our communities who continue to struggle with its impact on their lives.

Keep well and stay safe.
