It’s been an extremely tough year for most, but despite the often-made claim that “we’re all in this together”, it is a fact that parts of our society have suffered disproportionate, while other have positively flourished. Thanks to the furlough scheme, our lovely staff have been spared the worse and surely, at some stage in 2021 we shall all be here again to open our doors and welcome you, our much-valued customers back again. Sadly, some hospitality business will not survive and for some people the prospect of dining out will remain an out of reach luxury. Worse, for far too many families there have been tragic losses this year that can never be made good. We thank our lucky stars to be hanging on in, safe and well and able to look forward to better times, that will surely follow. Meantime, we wish you all a peaceful and safe, if possibly a rather lonely, Christmas, and a New Year of hope, optimism and fulfilment.
