Hello everyone
We hope you have had a good week. Weatherwise, it has been a grey week but the few bursts of sunshine have been so restorative and uplifting. Today we spotted a carpet of snowdrops, with primroses interspersed.. so beautiful. There are encouraging signs that Spring is approaching with birds singing from the trees and different varieties of spring flowers emerging; then there was the wonderful rainbow which arched over each of the villages this week. There were some amazing pictures of Harlington, Toddington and Flitwick on Facebook and of some wonderful double rainbows. It reminds us of God's covenant promise - a sign of hope. There have also been encouraging signs this week with Covid infection rates starting to decline, vaccinations on course and numbers of admissions to hospital starting to reduce, at last. Our hearts go out to those who have died and to those who grieve their loss. We especially remember Captain Tom and his family, and Jim Rose of Harlington Church who died today.
