Two years of pandemic Medway
Happy Birthday! We got you (one of the last) lateral flow tests!
Today marks two years since the UK entered our first national lockdown, something that somehow feels relatively recent but ages ago at the same time. The same can be said for much of the two years since.

It seems almost unthinkable now, but we spent months cut off from each other, only going out for essentials or exercise on otherwise deserted streets. We’re in a very different place now, despite the pandemic still being very strongly with us.
