    We opened our bifolds and our garden backs onto a railway. Could hear crowds from across the other side cheering and clapping

    Yep and I stuck two fingers in my mouth and whistled my head off. Every house in my Close was out as was adjoining streets. Great response in our area.:thumbsup:

    Yes we did, quite surprised at the number of other people in our small close that were out also clapping. My daughter who works in Orthodontics Dept at local hospital said that in her road there was loads of people out clapping and cheering on their doorsteps, she was quite emotional about it.

    Not a great response down my road sadly. Reckon about 25% were out. I hope the 75% that didn't feel massively guilty come the day they really need the NHS. Nice to see a few fireworks being set off though.

    We were out half to admit lot more people out round about me than I expected.
    From what I saw on the news looking like a respectable response from around the country.

    Two neighbours and I were the only ones but we clapped loudly and hooted vocally and we got virtually all my road out doing the same! It was very good to see. In fact, Italy and Spain clap every night and my neighbours and I are going out again tomorrow night.

    Will you join us in your roads, too?

    My wife sent me a clapping gif and reported in our village there was a good racket going on nice to know but was busy at work myself and marooned in Cornwall shame the pubs are shut with a weekend off. Where I am working it has been a low count of patients coming in and over 200 beds available so people are staying at home unless they need to come in. Will see how it picks up in the few weeks as the virus is supposed to peak but hopefully will not be as bad as prediction models forecasts. Nice to see the appreciation on the news clips a bit uplifting.

    Yes, here in Northern Ireland a lot of us were out at our doors showing our appreciation. Great community spirit. We owe a lot to the NHS.
