What about everyone else?

In Knowsley we've just had claps, drums, whistling, shouts of thank you and fireworks

I went out and total silence in our street full of older middle class people who obviously don't think much of the key workers, I clapped on my own

I have a baby asleep on me and expected nothing around here but every door opened on my street and the sounds of claps and cheers was actually a bit moving.

Our whole street came out to clap it was lovely!

We had in Cornwall it was lovely

Yup loads out here

it was moving....all day i was saying it was a rubbish idea but as dd is frontline we went out and were surprised.

Our street is usually a ghost town. Everyone 'lives' in the back room so there's never any lights on etc. Went out at 8pm feeling a bit silly and lots of people out. Very moving.

We had loads clapping near me. South east.

MummyInTheNecropolis Thu 26-Mar-20 20:09:05

Whole street was out here in SE20. Very moving

I found it really emotional, which I wasn’t expecting. It was really nice to see our neighbours all out, it felt like being a part of something

Much clapping here in our middle class street of mature folk.

It’s also started off some useful conversations amongst neighbours, so a good night all round.

Thescrewinthetuna Thu 26-Mar-20 20:09:37

A fair few round here. My own son was cheering loudly (he’s 6) and I think he understands why. Very moving.

It's something, isn't it? Lots of cheering and whistles, etc. Think there must be a few NHS workers on our road as it is not too far from a teaching hospital.

I hope it has done something for them anyway.

Clapping and fireworks here in Lancashire.

Clapped in Cardiff. Thank you NHS ... and all the other workers keeping us going smile

TeenPlusTwenties Thu 26-Mar-20 20:10:33

SO51 clapped.
We don't personally have much sight lines to other front doors but we could hear clapping and cheering echoing around, plus 2 or 3 firework bangs.

mbosnz Thu 26-Mar-20 20:11:01

We did, fully expecting to be the only ones, and heard so much.

We can do so very little.

Allaboardthemagicbus2020 Thu 26-Mar-20 20:11:11

Yes, some fireworks going off, I think.

Darbs76 Thu 26-Mar-20 20:11:16

Caterham Surrey - fireworks (clearly an essential purchase, not) and lots of noise, neighbours out and my dog barked in the window!

Pugdoglife Thu 26-Mar-20 20:11:29

Lots of clapping, cheering and fireworks here.

I doubt it’s done much for them though has it confused They would probably rather PPE than a patronising clap that makes all the people staying safely at home feel better.
