The holiday falls on 4 April this year and is celebrated across the globe.
According to the New Testament, Easter occurs three days after the crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans at Calvary 30 AD.
Whatever your religion or beliefs, I, together with the Council, wish you all a very happy, peaceful, enjoyable Easter time.
Sadly, once again, social distancing and the dread of a third wave of corona are still keeping us apart and making family or friendly get togethers difficult.
Our zoom apéros and book clubs are still in place for April but let’s hope that when the restaurants open again, we can actually meet up.
I do know that for May, June and July all the regions have organised events.
So, fingers crossed we can get the vaccination programme in full swing and that the numbers of those catching corona decline.
Despite the threat of rain at the end of next week the temperature seems to be rising and it really looks as if spring is finally arriving.
Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.
