I know this is a worrying and uncertain time for everyone, and I share your anguish and concern. Concern for loved ones out of reach, for friends we cannot see, for colleagues facing uncertainty, for ourselves not fully understanding what the future will hold. My greatest source of hope through this time, though, has been the incredible community spirit of Hertfordshire which has not just held steady in the face of adversity but grown more than I could have imagined.
Thank you to everyone who has stepped forward to help others, and everyone for listening to, and heeding Government advice. Some of these measures are difficult to ask, but just following the news each evening is a daily reminder of why it is so important we follow the instructions. It is not just the vulnerable or elderly who are at risk, and the actions we each now take will directly save lives.
I want to pay thanks most of all to those on the frontline, from the NHS workers and carers, to teachers, food producers, bus drivers, supermarket staff, delivery drivers, police and prison officers. Each day, they forsake their own safety for the protection of ours. We must never forget this true act of courage and sacrifice, and we must all show our thanks to them by staying at home, protecting the NHS and helping to save lives.
I remain completely committed to supporting every single one of you throughout the pandemic in every way which my role as your MP allows. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Keep well and stay safe.
