In this 90 second read we share a quick round-up of some of the good news which is happening during life under lockdown.
Welcome to the second Feelgood Friday update from us at Chilterns.
And here are four reasons to be cheerful and optimistic that East Anglia, the UK and the planet, will pull through this testing period.
The Care Bears
Following on from the rainbow posters brightening windows across Thetford, Brandon, Mildenhall and the UK we’re now seeing the rise of the ‘care bears.’ This lovely idea is for families to put teddy bears in their windows to brighten up the walks of people as they go by during their daily exercise.
Clap for Carers – An Encore
The UK turned out in force again yesterday evening to give another round of applause for the incredible staff of the NHS. Its popularity has grown since it began last Thursday, and it looks like being a weekly event which brings us together (practising social distancing of course) to celebrate those who are doing so much for our wellbeing and safety.
One to Watch
One of the most uplifting things we’ve seen on the internet this week is the American actor John Krasinski’s Some Good News updates. It’s funny, uplifting, moving and heart-warming. Well worth checking out on YouTube.
And Finally, …Who are your #localheroes?
Not all Superheroes wear capes. And that’s why we want to celebrate #Localheroes in Thetford, Brandon & Mildenhall. We would love to hear from you about those people who are making a difference to our community.
It could be NHS workers, volunteers, retail staff, good neighbours and anyone who you want recognised for bringing the feelgood factor to life in our towns.
And remember folks every day that passes brings us closer to this all ending and life returning to normal.
But for now: Stay at Home, Protect the NHS and Save Lives.
Thanks, and keep safe, positive and healthy.
