Whew – 2020 has been a year like no other, hasn’t it? And of course here in North Dorset we were lacking a local paper; not only to keep us abreast of the county’s serious news, but also just as importantly to share the good stuff. The heartwarming stories, the tales of the key workers, the small businesses who swiftly pivoted to help their local communities, the teams of volunteers who stepped up in every town and village across our region to ensure communities stayed connected and the vulnerable were looked after.
So in our first edition (next FRIDAY! Eeek!), we want to loudly and proudly acknowledge all of those people. And we need your help.
We need YOUR COVID19 thank you.
We’re sure each and every one of us knows a person, a business or an organisation that helped out when it mattered. One who made a real difference – to just one person, or to hundreds
So – use the form below to make your own nominations. We’ll print as many as we possibly can, and of course there’s an option to remain anonymous if you wish. The point is to give a public and heartfelt Thank You to all those who really deserve it, whether it’s your neighbour Jo for popping in with fresh milk, or the local pub who swiftly set up an online food delivery service. Do you want to thank the local supermarket staff for staying open and working in impossible circumstances, or maybe your Gran’s carer who still came in every day. Let’s give them the warmth they deserve, and a public stand up round of applause.
(and make you’re subscribed so that you get a copy of the magazine next Friday!)
