In the seventeenth century Watford had become sufficiently important to have a service of carriers to London but in those days the River Colne had to be forded on entering the town. Sometimes the water was as high as the saddles of the riders. Since then the waters of the Colne have fed breweries and paper mills. Today they flow gently through the town to be enjoyed by visitors to Hertfordshire in England.

Life in a Coronavirus Pandemic: Week 43 Lockdown Rules Enforced
It is week 43 of the coronavirus pandemic and the number of cases and deaths related to COVID 19 are still dangerously high as the NHS struggles to cope. The government issues some stark warnings and promises stricter enforcement of restrictions. Despite being told everyone should act as though they have the virus some people continue to behave as though it is not happening. Many are now assuming the vaccine will save us all but we still have to follow the rules until the vaccine begins having an effect which will take several weeks.
