Covid and me

To show how Covid-19 has impacted Surrey residents, the Local Resilience Forum Communications Group has teamed up with local broadcaster Peter Gordon, to launch a mini-series of personal stories from people who have experienced Covid.

Rates remain high across the county and unlike the first lockdown last year, more and more people know someone who’s had Covid. There are many different experiences, different symptoms and impacts and through the series COVID and Me, we are sharing those experiences, to help people understand and be more aware of the risks.

In this area, three residents have shared their stories to help reinforce the message that we all need to follow the guidelines, stay at home and do our bit to keep Surrey safe.

  • Andy Parr from Caterham had Covid in March 2020, but didn’t feel fully better until September. Listen to his story at
  • Kerry Mansfield, one of our Caterham district councillors, had Covid in March 2020 and suffered from long COVID for many months. Listen to her story at
  • Tim from Lingfield is still recovering after having Covid in December. Listen to his story at

All the videos are available on YouTube and we will be sharing them on our social media channels.
