Developing a Community Spirit

During the testing time of physical distancing and isolation the nation went through, we heard of some fantastic examples of neighbours looking out for each other, helping each other and some real community spirit.

· A customer on Richmond Street, a key worker, who was putting cards through neighbours’ doors with her contact number if anybody needed any shopping / emergency supplies.
· A couple in Margaret Philipson Court were doing shopping for their neighbours.

Let’s share these positive stories of good coming from a difficult situation. So, if you were checking on your neighbour, or doing shopping for someone who couldn’t, or started talking to someone you hadn’t done before, then we want to know about it.

Share your story at or tell your Housing Officer. We really would love to hear from you.
