What can we expect from 2021?
Reset. If 2020 was the flashpoint, then 2021 will be the reset and 2022 will be the start of the new world. Restrictions will continue into the start of the Spring, before being eased in the Summer, and then re-introduced at the end of Autumn.
What we hope to see in 2021
- A roadmap out of the Coronavirus pandemic
- A positive conclusion to Brexit negotiations
- A focus on working cohesively
- A spotlight on technological adoption
- A shared goal to bring the nation together and place the most vulnerable first.
We are in this together.
