MY lovely wife Vera and I, are really very lucky to have such thoughtful and caring neighbours in our street in Richmond where we’ve both lived since 1963.

We have certainly seen many changes over the years, but definitely nothing like the last two weeks, where we have both been truly overwhelmed and inundated with offers of help for shopping etc from six of our lovely kindly neighbours – Julie, Angela, Stephanie, Linda, Shirley and Helen along with their kind husbands, and also Brydie and Laurence Lines of the Richmond Royal British Legion branch, of which I’m a member.

Vera and myself cannot say “thank you” enough to all these wonderful people during this worldwide pandemic.

Thank you.

Roland Bramham, Richmond
