Life has changed beyond recognition since the end of March.

Many of us are still working from home and we are all wearing face masks to do our shopping and travel on public transport.

We’ve also learned a whole new vocabulary of words, from the R number to furlough.

Your express is inviting you to take part in our Big Conversation and help direct how we cover the city’s recovery.

Those months when we could only leave the home for essential tasks were tough - but they also meant that we got to know our neighbours and began to appreciate the freedoms we had lost.

And who would have thought that millions of us would leave our homes on Thursday evenings to applaud the key workers who were keeping us going?

Now we are asking you to help us take the temperature of the nation through a snapshot survey called the Big Conversation.

JPI Media titles throughout the country are asking questions of readers to find out what has changed since lockdown - and what the new society which emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic should look like to benefit us all.

Questions range from what is important to you in the light of lockdown to gauging public confidence as we emerge.

The survey will look at the impact of the pandemic on the economy and your spending habits as well as shining a light on healthcare provision in our communities.

It will also ask what we have learned from the past six months and if you have maintained that community spirit since.

We hope it will lead to changes in the way we live and work. You can get involved by taking part in the survey here.To comment further please email [email protected]
