Community voices Business leaders give their experience of Covid-19 We’re open for business Firms raring to go as we get ready for lift-off from lockdown loved seeing the social media posts of our readers enjoying their copies at home. The last few months have been a test for us all and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of this wonderfully caring and kind business community. We’ve all rallied for one another, looking out for signs that someone might be having a bit of a wobble, then picking up the phone and checking in. We’ve taken it in turns to scoop each other up on a low day and that’s amazing. I’ve seen nothing like it before and it makes me feel so very comforted to know that so many of you have got my back, as I’ve got yours. This edition is all about business and community coming together, from our cover story thanking our local hospital and its staff (turn to page 4), to pages 6-7 where we recognise those offering ethical inspiration in business. If there is a ‘new normal’ I hope that this sense of community stays. By sticking together this region will continue to survive and thrive. Keep safe and stay positive.
