We are all experiencing a time not one of us could ever have imagined. Every single one of us has had to adjust to not working, not seeing loved ones and friends and having to stay home, which is particularly hard on sunny days like today!
We all know how important it is to follow these rules. So we can see our loved ones again, so we can get back to 'normal' life.
Those working on the frontline, our key workers are the reason why we stand on our doorsteps and clap at 8pm every Thursday evening. Just a small way of saying 'Thank you'.
Tonight will be no exception. We love to hear the clapping echoing around the village every week. It really has brought communities together.
One local lady in particular deserves a clap herself tonight. Emma-Jane Carroll of Weldon!
Yesterday, Wednesday April 22nd, a local lady and member of our Police force, Mia Hearn, had rushed into the Londis store on High Street to buy some Soya milk for her baby when she realised she had no bank card or cash to pay for it. Her phone wasn't working to allow the payment via that method either.
Seeing what was happening a stranger stepped in and paid for the milk, refusing to accept the offer of a bank transfer to cover the cost!
Mia contacted Weldon Village online in the hope that we could trace the generous stranger so she could thank her properly and it worked! Mia told us:
She was so kind! I can't believe it!
So Mia, a frontline worker and Emma-Jane, for having a heart of gold, we will clap for you both tonight!
Stay safe everyone x
