The uncertainty currently confronting our world is well understood and, like everyone, Southbank News is not immune to it.
“Unprecedented”, “extraordinary” and “bizarre” are words we’ve all become sadly too familiar with in recent times as the devastating effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to wreak havoc in our community.
But while the fear of the unknown is always a natural cause for anxiety, we should not allow panic to become a more powerful contagion that the virus itself. Calmness, compassion and care are some of the best cures we currently have in grappling with the fresh realities of this pandemic each day.
And as so many of you will feel isolated at home and cut off from your own communities during this period, there has never been a more important time for us to try and do our bit to help you feel that little bit more connected.
But with so many businesses shutting their doors and doing their best to weather this storm, we will be doing our very best to keep bringing you your local news while things return to normal, which they will.
In the meantime, if you’re a resident or business, please don’t hesitate to reach out, share your story with us and let us know how we can support you through this in any way.
