The year 2020 was set up as another incarnation of the "roaring 20s", but no one would have been able to anticipate everything that has happened.
It has been difficult for so many reasons and to so many people, but I have been overwhelmed by the way businesses, neighbours, friends, and family have risen to the challenge.
Businesses right across Hampstead Village reinvented themselves to support the local community, provide essential items, and opened their doors to help those most in need.
I am humbled to work with so many individuals who believe in working collaboratively and helping each other out — even though it was not easy.
Our business community is incredibly resilient and truly understand what it means to be part of a community.
This pandemic has made everyone realise what we are most thankful for and I hope we keep that sense of kindness well into the new year.
We are stronger when we work together. So, bring on 2021.
