Our village Peace Park is a good location to see the sunset at this time of the year. I must admit to a feeling of satisfaction at seeing the final sunset of 2020 as we say farewell to such a challenging year. The silhouette is of the memorial stone erected to the memory of the men and women of Winshill who served their country in the two world wars and other conflicts. Wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful year in 2021.
Little did we know when this photograph was taken in December 2019 what lay ahead for us in 2020.
We had planned to visit the ‘Lichfield Cathedral Illuminated’ event again this year but sadly it was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions. It really is a special event with lights and music in the cathedral close and this impressive ever-changing light display inside the cathedral.
We used this photograph for our Christmas card this year and are now delighted to post it for our blogging friends and followers. A very happy Christmas to you all and we wish you a healthy and peaceful year in 2021.

After months of restrictions, lockdown, changes to our daily routine, not meeting friends and family (the list is endless), we are now beginning to hear of people we know personally, having the vaccination – four so far this week.
Roll on 2021, roll out the vaccine, roll up your sleeve!
