    That's when good neighbors become good friends.

    But what about social distancing?

    He would have to leave it at the door as the Mrs is on a twelve week lockdown.

    I was about to ask if Townhill still had the reputation that it had in the 80s and 90s, or had it been 'gentrified' since, but then realised that you had five slabs of Bow and my question was answered.

    Let's all look out for those who elderly and vulnerable, it makes you feel good doing something extra .

    Just ran a much needed prescription errand for my elderly neighbour .

    He was so grateful.

    Put everyone's bins out in a hurry today as just heard the dustbin lads are doing the roads.

    Besides doing shopping for a 90 year old lady about a mile away I volunteered to be on standby for twenty (half of the houses) in my street. Unfortunately, I have all the bungalows and it could get rather busy due to the age profile of the occupants.

    Only now they are asking? Better late than never I suppose.

    Been looking after the old girl next door, checking in on her every day and picking her some bits up. Iíve agreed to mow her lawn (thatís not a euphemism!) when it warms up. She caught me lovely with that one.

    Its nice that there is some more community spirit being shown.

    As per usual itís the working class mucking in and looking out for one another. Itís a shame the same canít be said of some of the more wealthy.

    A couple opposite us in Rumney only moved in about 6 months ago and they left a note for us offering any help we required. They've got my missus' meds from the chemist and bought us some milk to tide us over until our online order arrives. Wonderful people who we greatly appreciate and who we will definitely invite over for a drink with us when this thing is over. I can't praise people like this enough. It's quite humbling.

    Re: Good neighbours

    Done some shopping for some housebound neighbours and popped our phone number through some doors if elderly neighbours.
    Will help whilst we can but you never know it could be us needing help down the line.

    A friend of mine had to have a blood test this morning due to an ongoing condition she has and on her way back from the medicalcentre she saw a couple going at it hammer and tongs in the back seat of a car - at ten to nine this morning.

    The Syrian refugee family we are looking after (or rather were, as we can't go and see them now of course as we are in the 70+ category) have offered to do the food shopping for us as we can't.

    Re: Good neighbours

    A mate of mine who's survived cancer and a stroke asked me if I wanted him to get any shopping for my 88 year old Dad who lives in Ely as I'm now in Barry.

    I really respect that you're doing that. The Syrians are suffering terribly and are not our enemy, yet a lot of the bombs dropped on Syria are British made.

    The vast majority don't want to be here in reality and want to live in their own country with their wider family and friends in safety.
