2020. What a year – and for all the wrong reasons. It started off fair enough, but then “the thing” in mid-March landed and it really hurt – and altered – all of our lives.
it really hurt – and altered – all of our lives.
We are very fortunate in Gibraltar to have such a sense of community and kinship that is rare to find elsewhere in the world. Perhaps it’s our spirit, with a large helping of dogged-determination.
Here at Insight, our hearts go out to all the families, friends – and even passing acquaintances – who have been affected by COVID. Words can never adequately express the loss experienced by some families from this deadly invisible virus.
The toll on business has been immense. Rules have had to change in a reactionary manner as governments, both here and abroad, learned more about the ways it could spread. The authorities were working with the best information they had at the time. At all times, the lives of Gibraltarians was first and foremost.
We are exceptionally lucky to have such wonderful advertisers. Without them, you wouldn’t be holding this edition in your hands right now, be it physical or on an electronic device. We don’t take you for granted and are very much grateful for your continued support. We exist to inform and entertain, but an important part of this is our central role in enabling local businesses to advertise their latest innovations, products or services to as wide an audience as possible.
On a personal note, I’d like to thank Jean, Rose, Ben, Elliott and Billy for all that they’ve accomplished in the most trying of circumstances. Once again, thank you very much.
And to our readers, we don’t take you for granted either. Being immersed in the community for almost 30 years is at the heart of everything we do. 2021 will present existing and new challenges and we will do our upmost to present you with a view of what’s going on in Gibraltar, and beyond.
Have a wonderful Festive period. Keep safe, and stay well.
