‘It is massively important that we are all finding ways to socialise together,’ says Dan Moss
Residents living in Denton, about six miles from Manchester city centre, plan to hold a game each Sunday for three weeks to lift the spirits of those living in Coppice Walk.
The events have been organised through the local “Coppice Walk Community Help” Facebook group which is helping to support residents during the pandemic.
The winners of each game will receive a prize donated by the local community.
Mr Moss, who filmed the first session on 19 April, said: “I had no official role in the bingo, just thought it would be nice to record a video of the great community spirit.
“Neighbours donated prizes for each of the three games.
“The star prize was the ‘Survival Pack’ which consisted of a jigsaw, a bar of chocolate and toilet roll”.
Dan, who is part of the ‘Coppice Walk Community Help’ Facebook group, says its important for more vulnerable members of society to find ways to socialise during lockdown.
He added: “We’ve also had a couple of coffee mornings and afternoon teas, neighbours are sitting on their drivers having a chat”
“The weather has helped massively.
“We have all already discussed throwing a street party when it’s safe to do so”
“It is massively important that we are all finding ways to socialise together and this is bringing us together closer as a community”.
Communities across the UK have been coming together to help one another and keep spirits high during the pandemic.
Last month, an entire street sang Happy Birthday to a young girl in Southampton who was stuck at home on her birthday.
