"The warmth of the community who came out at 3pm as they have continued to clap and cheer and rattle frying pans as a thankyou to the NHS and key workers.

"Denise who loves baking has supplied cakes and an assortment of buns that the neighbours since way back in March, have gladly devoured after making a donation.
