I have opened a Facebook page for the area where I live as the one thing we are good at is being there for each other.
It feels like the place I grew up in, and the children of my friend call me nana, and know I have sweets for them even though I have my own grandchildren. I have cuddles and loves everyday and I feel blessed to have them all
My best friend is their mum and she is half my age, but we get on so well. Whenever anybody is unwell we rally round and if anyone is distressed or just in need…we are there with offer of support and help.
We do not do it based on colour, religion, remain or BREXIT but because we all appreciate and care who our neighbours are.
What a pity those values are being forgotten.
