Clap for carers is not just for NHS, so a big clap and thankyou to all those carers amongst us, just because it’s for a family member doesn’t mean it’s less appreciated I’ll be outside at 8pm clapping for all forum users carers and their famies. Thank you.

The entire street out clapping very heart warming.
As a bonus my son was just returning from his jog as people were clapping, he milked it as if they were clapping for him, arms in air as if he was finishing a marathon, brilliant lol.
The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.

One of two grandsons live a few doors down from me and for the first couple of weeks he’d come out with a pan and wooden spoon but we’ve had to stop him now because were running out of wooden spoons as he’s broken three so far.😁April 30, 2020 at 7:55 pm #112583

Tonight alongside clapping for carers a big clap goes out to all those that have missed out on celebrations and alike by respecting others and keeping social distance, a lot of people have missed out on birthdays etc and even weddings,May 21, 2020 at 7:44 pm #113575
My daughter was due to be married tomorrow in swanage. plus their honeymoon was cancelled too.
We’ve been lucky enough to book the same day next year.

I turned 50 during lockdown but I wasn’t too disheartened as it was just my daughter and I and as we have normally been working during birthdays it was a great day but I feel for everyone who has had to cancel memorable occasions but hope that as a level of normality returns so will their chance to resume their plans 🍺May 22, 2020 at 4:27 pm #113655
I see the lady who started this is saying next week should be the last as ten weeks is enough. I will continue for a while yet as it’s not about time it’s about commitment. As long as people are putting their lives on the line, over and above what could reasonably be expected of them, the least we can do is show our appreciation.May 22, 2020 at 8:23 pm #113668
Not sure this is still happening where I live, the feedback about people banging pans & letting fireworks off has been necessarily brutal.
Also, most folk aren’t back from the BBQ down the beach 30 miles away for 8pm.

I think the lady who started it is right. It also irks me when it’s constantly the NHS. I love the NHS and have huge respect for all within it but ALL workers carrying on essential work are equally important, binmen, carers, drivers, shop workers the list is long.
I leave a bottle of ale in the milk crate every few weeks for our milky who’s got to be nearly 70.
He says there’s no need but it is much appreciated.May 28, 2020 at 7:29 pm #113990
Tonight in contrast to last week where I clapped for people missing out on celebration etc, tonight a big clap to all those and their families that have beat the virus and get to see so much more. We’ll done, don’t waste a minute Enjoy every moment.May 28, 2020 at 11:02 pm #113997
There was a push earlier today in the media for tonight’s Clap for Carers to be the last. It is supported by the lady credited with starting it.

<p style=”text-align: left;”>Wonder how many put clapping will be backing this gov when they put a cap on their wages again soon.</p>
Shame those clapping weren’t all protesting the gov booting the families of deceased immigrant NHS staff out of the country after dying from Covid (been stopped now fortunately).
This clapping business is imho really dangerous as its a distraction from working conditions of Carers & NHS staff. The incredibly poor wages for carers. My sister has been doing 12 hour shifts looking after dying covid patients she’s 27 has a baby & is paid £17,000 that’s a total joke.
I appreciate its raising spirits for some & if it’s making you happier then good for you but most medics etc would rather we didn’t bother, stayed inside & pressured our MPs into providing PPE, not lying about the stats (like a swab from throat & nose from 1 person is 2 tests, how figures are massaged) & better pay & conditions.
Not meaning to have a go at anyone & if people feel like clapping safely then go for it but I’m putting my energy into pushing for better treatment for all these people
