Book of remembrance

Our borough, like many communities, experienced a tragic amount of deaths from Covid-19.

To coincide with the anniversary of lockdown, we are launching a Book of Remembrance for residents.

You can leave tributes to remember and celebrate the lives of family members, friends and colleagues lost in the pandemic.

Leave your tribute.
