Fond memories to ease a lockdown Mother's Day
- Credit: Archant Library
We might be taking tentative steps towards eased lockdown restrictions, but Mother's Day on March 14, 2021 will look a little different to our celebrations from years gone by.
Rather than popping out to our Mum's favourite cafe for afternoon tea, this year we are looking for ways to send a Mother's Day takeaway.
Instead of visiting scenic spots to meet our relatives, we are scrambling to coordinate a Zoom call with our families.
It is a shame that we cannot celebrate Mother's Day in the usual way but for now lockdown restrictions remain in place.
Perhaps then it is a time to reflect on happy memories with our Mums or of Mother's Days in the past. They remind us that more normal times will return and we will be able to give them a big hug in the not-too-distant future.
For now, please enjoy this collection of photos from our archives. We hope they conjure up some of your own fond memories.
