It was a pleasure to be at the opening of the Enfield Living Memorial in Enfield Town Park alongside members of the local community.

More than 1,000 residents lost their lives during the pandemic and many are still living with the effects of Long Covid today.

The memorial, designed by local artist Joe Robinson, will be a permanent living tribute to those who lost their lives during Covid-19 and it will be an important place for people to reflect on the pandemic and grieve loved ones locally.
