Frank has asked us to write about something positive in 2020 rather than more doom and gloom from a year that has been cruel, heartbreaking and uncertain.

We thought 2019 was bad enough for us, but 2020 knocked that well into the shade, so to be asked to write about something positive in such a terrible year is a wonderful idea.
Death, be it human or pets, has raised its head on too many occasions on our estate, but the support given to those bereaved has been amazing. People stood on the pavement to pay their last respects to neighbours and friends who have passed away as they made their final journey as funeral services limited numbers. Those now alone have had permanent contact from others locally in respect of shopping or dog walking. No-one has turned away offers of help, and safety measures have been put in place by all for contact, deliveries and collections. Community spirit here has soared.
There are still good people in the world, they are amongst us but go unnoticed as they go about their daily routines. One such person is a neighbour who promised to look after a dog walking friend’s dog when she went into hospital. She wouldn’t have gone otherwise. Sadly, she passed away on December 23rd, but her dog will continue to be cared for in her now forever home, and that warms my heart.
