Coronavirus update - Easter Saturday

* A screenshot from the Ysgol Bryn Collen fitness video. 

As the Easter holiday began yesterday Cat Meade, co-ordinator of the Llangollen Coronavirus Help Group, posted on Facebook that the hard-working team of volunteers were taking a break until Tuesday when they would be back ready to help the community through lockdown.

One of the key volunteers was about and about early on Good Friday delivering urgent medication.

And as he passed over the bridge Mike Connolly shot a quick video, panning round to show how eerily quiet the town was in contrast to how it usually is on a bank holiday.

Cat posted: “Happy Good Friday to you all.

“Let’s spend this weekend being grateful for what we have, our loved ones, our friends, our health, our community, sunshine.

“It is easy to lose sight of the most precious things in life with our busy days, weeks rolling into months ... catch up on Facebook, call, write a letter, tell that person what they mean to you, let’s take a positive from all of this, keep smiling.

“What a FANTASTIC scene Llangollen set last night for the 8pm Clap. What a Town! Music from all around was. Awesome.

“Our Volunteers are all taking a break until Tuesday and well deserved Please only call if urgent, we all need to recharge and will be back ready to help from Tuesday.

“There are still a few Light Sabres at Newsagents in Castle Street, get them ready for next Thursday.

“Orders still being taken for #llangollenfamily tshirts.

“Happy Easter Everyone, Enjoy.”

As he posted his video, Mike Connolly wrote: “Feeling proud in Llangollen.

“Out early Thursday morning delivering urgently needed meds. Not a soul to be seen.”

Another video was posted yesterday by Ronnie Louise Medri showing how people were keeping occupied during the lockdown.

She wrote:The staff at Ysgol Bryn Collen are missing all of our children and parents.

“We know that our community is missing us too so we have put together a Fitness Frenzy video for you to follow at home.

“Please show it to your children and share so that all of our pupils and families are able to be positive and feel a little bit together whilst we are apart. #GoBrynCollen

Meanwhile, Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes posted the letter (above) he had sent to Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he was gripped by the virus.

He said:Very pleased Boris is out of ICU and we all wish him a speedy recovery and a Happy Easter. This is the letter I sent him earlier in the week with best wishes from my constituents and his many friends in Clwyd South.

The vicar, Father Lee Taylor, returned to Facebook to live stream the Good Friday service from St Collen’s during the afternoon.

There are further streamed services this weekend at:
