COVID-19 Reflections

Textbox Section

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on all of us, transforming the way we live, work and socialise. Residents and communities are joining together to reflect on this time and preserve their thoughts for future generations in a borough-wide project called COVID-19 Reflections, coordinated by Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Visit the COVID-19 Reflections website >

Our Learning Officer Virginia, along with the Grosvenor Museum Meet and Make group of people living with dementia and their loved ones, toured Grosvenor Park as part of the project.

If you'd like to know more about the Meet and Make group, please email Virginia.
