Rutland County Council says no-one could have imagined what 2020 had in store and that there will be challenges in 2021
Oliver Hemsley (Con) - leader of Rutland County Council - pens his New Year's message.
Here we are at the start of another year. Traditionally, this is a time for setting resolutions, turning over a new leaf and making plans. As things stand, there is a huge amount of uncertainty about what lies ahead.
Twelve months ago, no-one could have imagined what 2020 would have in store and that we would all find ourselves sorely tested by the coronavirus pandemic. Even as we celebrated the rollout of a vaccine, last minute changes to Christmas plans and news of a new strain of Covid reminded us that there is still a long way to go.
