Take a Minute for Cheshire and Merseyside

by Jonathan Kearney

We have all made changes this year to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

Much has been sacrificed for the good of others.

As we journey through a second national lockdown, community voices across the Cheshire and Merseyside region have come together to ask the public to Take A Minute.

The Take A Minute campaign is about highlighting the voices of those in our communities who are following protective measures. For their families, their friends, loved ones, our health services.

Footballers, actors, council workers, parents, grandparents, teachers, nurses and firefighters are just some of the people who are sharing their thoughts as part of the inspirational campaign, which has been devised by council and health partners across Merseyside and Cheshire.

Maybe you’re taking extra care for the good of a loved one, or worried about the impact of COVID-19 on our care homes. Maybe you’re aching to get back to the football, live music, a casual pint with a mate – and you know the quickest way to do that is to get through the next few months as safely as possible.

But the sooner we all do the right things, the sooner we can get back to our ‘normal’. And whatever that means for you. The differences between living and existing. Between surviving and thriving.

So whether you Take A Minute for our NHS, for your community, for our vulnerable, your family, friends, or for you – tell us why. Take A Minute to pause for thought. Take A Minute for Cheshire and Merseyside.
