Shropshire’s Covid Year


We’re planning a book based on the personal anecdotes of Shropshire people during the Coronavirus epidemic – tales of lock-down and of resiliance, of survival. to be published in March 2021.

Shropshire’s Covid Year will not be about medical disaster, sadness or bereavement although there’s been some of that; we’re looking for tales of triumph over adversity, of humour and of how some people found ways to get by. We’re talking stolen kisses, escaped otters, love among the bike sheds, ghost choirs, badgers around the brazier, football by moonlight.

The editorial committee is holding its first meeting on Thursday and we’ll be looking for submissions shortly.
