I would like to ask for your mindfulness during this new year's eve. Please, remember the people who have elderly family, small children, sick people and also the pets and rest of our animals, and don't blast your fireworks nearby houses or exactly next door. It is just awful to be inside your home and have children or sick people wake up to the sounds of the fireworks. Please, respect your neighbours. And if you really must blast fireworks do it away from houses.
Have all a safe and happy new year!
We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.
Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
