Litter picking and helping out neighbours
Litter picking and helping out neighbours are some of the latest acts of kindness as part of the 1000 Hours Gateway Vineyard initiative.
Before social distancing guidance came into force, Reuben (pictured above), aged 5, told his mum Sian that he wanted to collect rubbish on his walk to and from Recreation Road School in Norwich: “To save the flowers”. So he did just that.
Also litter picking before the restrictions came into place were Nicky and Keith Morris (pictured right) in the South Norfolk village of Wreningham. They spent a couple of hours picking up rubbish along roadsides in the village.
The Gateway Vineyard members also spent a couple of hours delivering Wreningham village Handbooks, providing loads of useful information for fellow residents – Keith had written the booklet in his role as a local parish councillor. He also found an hour to mow the lawn of a neighbour who is a nurse at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
