Report by Merseyside Correspondent Andy Bonner
This week on Granada Reports, we've been looking back over the last 12 months since the first lockdown, back in March 2020.
While it's easy to dwell on the worst effects of the last year, in many cases the pandemic has brought out the best in people.
Communities have been brought closer together by their combined experiences.
Last year, we caught up with residents from streets across the North West as part of our Isolation Street series.
Our Merseyside Correspondent Andy Bonner visited one Brownmoor Park in Crosby, where residents were determined to fill the road with the colours of the rainbow to thank key workers and lift everyone's spirits.
So how have they been getting on? Andy's been back to find out.
Now, Alexis and her fiance Steve are now planning their wedding, and it'll be held in a familiar place, with a socially distanced reception right outside their house, on the rainbow street!
