On March 23rd 2022, the two years anniversary of the first lockdown, Kirklees Council joined the rest of the country to remember those we have lost to Covid-19, reflect on the sacrifices we have all made and celebrate the togetherness we have shown throughout.
The film – just one way that Covid Memorial Day will be respected – features residents from across Kirklees who share their experiences, struggles and emotions as they reflect on the pandemic and its impact on them.
Having lost my stepfather and close friend Dee Farrell in Nov '20 within two days of each other, I felt this was a project I needed to be part of and an honour to handle and produce. It not only allowed me to interview a select few who kindly agreed to share their experiences but allowed me to regain focus on my work at a very difficult time.
