Thank you Adrian for your very entertaining daily briefing! And for all you are doing on behalf of our churches.

[12:34:12] Resident131:

Isn’t Adrian just a top chap? I asked where we could get tongs for our litter pick up by the airstrip (you wouldn’t believe what people chuck into the ditches) and quick as a flash Adrian has offered to drop two sets of tonges and two tabbards off to us. The world needs more Adrian’s.
[12:35:47] Resident031:

Hear, hear.
[12:36:50] Resident033:

[15:50:28] Resident011:

Thanks much appreciates
[15:53:32] Resident022:

Muti-colured swap shop finished on BBCTV in 1982. Hosted by Noel Edmunds. Tiswas was more manic. You have to be about 45+ to remember the shows. Enjoy the sun everyone.
[15:55:30] Resident125:

If no one wants the books I can take to NANNAs as they have a book deposit that helps towards the cost of the animals x
[16:00:08] Resident033:

I was on swap shop in Abington park all those moons ago. I swapped a metal puzzle game that belonged to my brother, for a jigsaw, lol he chased me home he was so furious with me. my word I forgot about that until swap shop was mentioned. 🤦‍♀️
[16:09:24] Resident016:

Where is this stuff? The pasta cooker might make a nice plant pot?
[16:10:28] Resident016:

Whoops need to go to optician - just realised its a pedal bin 🥺🤣🤣
[16:11:22] Resident131:

Carol, I thought someone had added to the pile😁

[16:53:56] Resident055:

[16:59:49] Resident011:

[17:06:48] Adrian Dale:

Ladies please! Just because the men in your house behave like big kids .... that really doesn’t count 😂
[17:21:23] Resident033:

Literally just thought I would fill a basket from Ocado. Managed to get a slot for tomorrow afternoon if any one needs anything I’m happy to add to my delivery. I have half hour to edit my order. 👍
[17:23:28] Adrian Dale:

I heard from Richard and Lou Thorncroft today that Ocado is allowing you to pre-book your next slot a fortnight ahead as you are completing your order.
[17:24:36] Resident004:

Ocado is letting regular customers and vulnerable customer to book slots. But you can’t get a slot if you’ve had one in the past 14 days. If you’ve been flagged you will have an email
[17:25:21] Resident033:

I’m straight in for tomorrow 3pm-4pm
[17:25:47] Resident097:

Will be enough for everyone i have 1.5t of kindling to bag up and several trees that ive cut. Not asking for any payment but if anyone wants to make a donation I will happily give it to Adrian and the Parish to help with anything they may need ie mowers and equipment etc
[17:27:59] Resident131:

That’s such a kind thing to do, we all appreciate it and will be extremely grateful when the weather turns, Vanessa
[17:29:37] Resident023:

Elaine B - again a massive THANKS for the Blom-Blooms. They always put a big smile on our faces 😃😃 C&K x

[17:33:19] Resident033:

[17:34:14] Resident034:

[18:05:51] Resident015:

Thank you for my lovely Tulips much appreciated
[18:07:05] Adrian Dale:

Candy - you are the eyes, ears and hands in Hillside, you deserve it!
[18:08:26] Resident015:

Are you trying to say I'm nosy 😀
[18:08:59] Adrian Dale:

Without you 3 people would be struggling!!!
[18:24:19] Resident022:

[18:26:10] Resident031:

[18:28:00] Resident130:

Needed some skimmed milk powder yesterday to make bread & my husband bought Cow & Gate Growing-up milk for 1-2 years! What can I say - he's a man?! Used 1 tablespoon for my loaf (it was all I had!) & no longer need it as I now have SM powder! Would love to give it to someone who can use it. You can collect or I will deliver......
[18:35:53] Adrian Dale:

Bread .... you found flour! Am considering buying a tanker load
[18:43:37] Resident087:

I have some plain flour if anyone is desperate !
[18:45:14] Resident130:

Cookies sells bread flour - very expensive - then I found a bag in the co-op! Have ordered some online due to be delivered on Tuesday - I hope!
[18:48:49] Resident130:

Have a friend who has just had her final dog put down (she had 4 originally). She's desperate to adopt a rescue dog but finding it impossible. Can anyone help?
[18:51:17] Resident138:

The lady who is involved with NANAs should be able to
[18:52:22] Resident130:

Was wondering about that - there are still animals out there desperate for good homes.
[18:52:29] Resident138:

Search for Tammy or NANNAs sorry I spelt it wrong
[18:54:18] Resident130:

[18:56:20] Resident089:

[18:57:20] Resident138:

They are gorgeous :) also very good excuse for a good walk too
[19:09:52] Resident052:

Try Spaniel Aid a charity specialising in those Mad Spaniel breeds of which we have 2 🐶🐶 but I think Nanna’s will be a great start Rescue is a favourite breed xx
[19:18:13] Michelle Dalliston:

So just a reminder of the Easter Vigil tonight - it is available now or later too if you cannot join in at 8pm. It's a special service which anticipates the joy of Easter - you'll need a candle for the service! 🕯️

Link to the Easter Vigil Service at 8pm
[19:31:48] Resident125:

Unfortunately NANNAs is closed to the public at the moment due to the lockdown so we cant do any adoptions. You will find that with most rescues at the moment. I'm more than happy to take your friend down when we open again x
[19:47:28] Resident054:

Wow. What an amazing sunset. Go have a look if you can.
[19:48:08] Resident045:

[19:49:24] Resident125:

The reason NANNAs is closed is because we cant do any home visits and to also protect the volunteers from being exposed to Covid 19 as it is all run by volunteers
[19:49:52] Resident033:

Enjoy and happy Easter. Thank you team for doing what you are doing for us all in the village 🌷🌷🌷🌷
[19:51:02] Adrian Dale:
