[06:18:25] Adrian Dale:

Morning Adrian, listening about the duck and horse round up’s you’ve been involved in brought back memories of this...
[08:29:44] Resident038:

Are there some still going?
[08:31:03] Resident039:

I think there gone ... was hoping to get one too. We’re we’re too late x
[08:31:37] Resident038:

Ah what a shame... I think we have missed quite a bit in here haha
[08:31:52] Resident038:

What is everyone doing for tomorrow's celebration?
[08:32:03] Resident038:

We are not on FB so miss info
[08:33:36] Michelle Dalliston:

Great to hear all the good news this morning Adrian 😊 so glad for our family hopefully coming out of isolation at the weekend, and for Chris and family. Xxx
[08:33:55] Resident039:

Lol ! Think everyone is sitting on the front lawn .... although not sure. (Dont shoot me but technically it’s a gathering so in the face of peace we’re celebrating in the back garden x
[08:35:26] Resident039:

We’re nipping to the shops later so if I see any bunting do you want me to pick some up for you? X
[08:36:16] Resident038:

Ah that's very kind but not to worry the hubby has been give the instructions to look when he goes to the shop later. Thank you though
[08:36:33] Resident039:

No probs x
[08:38:18] Resident131:

Hi, could I be a pain and ask if there is any bunting at the shops you grab me some? I missed the bunting post yesterday and cannot find ours anywhere. Hope you don’t mind me asking. Many thanks, Vanessa
[08:39:53] Resident039:

Of course I don’t mind I will happily pick you some up if I can find some. Will drop off this evening we’re off to the shops about 5ish do you need anything else? X
[08:42:41] Resident131:

Thank you, much appreciated. We don’t need anything else, thank you x
[08:46:01] Resident038:

Actually, can I change my mind. If you see any may we have some too?
[08:46:49] Resident038:

Sorry 🤪
[08:47:04] Resident039:

Ha ha yes ! If I can get some will pick you one up ha ha ! 🤪
[08:47:28] Resident038:

Thank you, sorry about that.
[08:48:28] Michelle Dalliston:

Thank you Paul, Chris and John for the Podcast today - those childhood memories are very poignant. My parents were born in 40 and 41 so both have some memories of air raids, bombs and diving under tables! Tomorrow's celebration will be important and meaningful - there will be an order of service to follow online and the idea of joining together if possible at 12 so we can hold the 2 minute silence together at 11am too. 🇬🇧
