We had a reasonable number out tonight, but the road wasn't lined as I thought it might be. However I hear from friends and relatives that people around them supported the gesture quite well.   :clap:

PS.... of course, as far as I am concerned that applause was for all the key workers still out there doing what they do best.  :clap:

We turned out, we also gave a clap for all the emergency services who are out there doing their thing, we also gave a clap for the key workers out there doing their thing, and the people who can't be out there doing their thing. Be careful folks, none of us are immortal  :thumb:

Immoral, maybe, but definitely not immortal.

My wife is a nurse and although all staff are grateful for the support the main thing that will help is people staying in, A&E today were turning people away and giving them packs as they are at full capacity, I worry about her working, the reports of lack of PPE are correct, desperate times.

I second that. Best way to support the NHS  now is to not need their services. Stay home.

 :clap:  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I know exactly what you're talking about Pete, my wife is in the same position. They recently tried to order face masks and only enough arrived for one for each nurse, and not all nurses got one. She's just spent a week in bed with what we assume is CV19 (although they're not testing anyone  :dl_smiley_banghead:), and given how ill it made her all I can say is this is nasty sh*t. Despite how ill she's been, all she talks about is needing to get back to work to help people and her colleagues who are dealing with this.

Somehow, in our isolated state, me and the wife managed to miss all references to the 8pm  event   :shrug:, is there another one planned?

If I hear someone else clapping outside, I shall join in tonight too.
It amazes me this day and age how some people just don't know Jack Schitt…:-)

Jack Schitt is the Son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt. 
Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, having six kids, Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt. 
15 years later, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt married Ted Sherlock, and as her kids were living with them she kept her name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock!

@ Gassoon, I hope so, and that it's not too far away and it's a round of applause for when  this is all over!
