“I’ve lived on Countess Road for 17 years. But in that time I’d only really known one person on the street - my next door neighbour.

Thanks to the Thursday evening clapping, I’ve connected with other neighbours and have made some incredibly strong bonds. After clapping, we always have a glass of wine together. In fact three of us are even planning to go away together in August -  that’s going to be incredibly fun!

I imagine this is what communities used to be like before we all became so independent and single minded. I hope we never forget this time and that the community we’re creating continues to grow!”
