Message from the Mayor: National Day of Reflection

Cllr June Harrison, Mayor of Hyndburn:

“Today marks one year since the first lockdown. As part of the National Day of Reflection we are pausing to acknowledge our collective loss and reaching out to support those who are struggling. I will be shining a light at 8pm this evening to show my support and spending some time to make sure my friends and family know what they mean to me.

This pandemic has had a devastating impact on our community, however it has also shown the power of people. We are strong, we have many helpers and there is support available if you or a loved one needs it. My message to Hyndburn today is please make sure you reach out if you need this support, there is no need to struggle alone.”
