Most major events have now been cancelled or postponed, but May 8th still remains a national bank holiday and an opportunity for us to reflect on past events and those we are currently experiencing.
The Big Picnic for Hope is an opportunity for households to be part of a virtual get together, inviting people to stay at home, to picnic indoors or in their gardens, and to join friends and families virtually as celebrate the heroes of our new ‘homefront’. Those risking their lives, the NHS, carers, delivery personnel, workers across food stores or public transport, and the remarkable collective effort of the nation to stay home and play our own individual part in helping to see this through.
Our regional correspondent Rachel Matthews spoke with the Very Revd Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield Cathedral and Chairman of the Association of English Cathedrals to find out more.
