The last few months have been challenging for all of us – yet many wonderful people in our local communities have been going above and beyond throughout the Covid-19 outbreak.

We asked Gazette readers to tell us about someone who has helped them – whether it’s a neighbour, friend or someone else they know – during the difficult times.

Many of you got in touch via our Northumberland Gazette Facebook page, sending thank you messages to those who have delivered essential items, sent positive messages or gone out of their way to help out.

Here are some of your messages of thanks:

Andrea Field: “My friend Kate Sims has been doing my weekly shop every Saturday for 10 weeks. She has also offered moral support and gave me the courage to brave the supermarket on my own early last Saturday.”

Lindsay Johnstone: “Karen and Phil from The Star Inn in Harbottle have been amazing. They expanded their small shop and now have everything you need to get you through. Can't thank them enough.”

Lorraine Anne Hudson: “Chelsea Wilson, she has baked and dropped off goodies (very nice baked goodies might I add) regularly and her and her dad checked on me when my dad died.”

Elsie Goward: “I am a carer for my husband and I have a lovely family who do our shopping, and some lovely friends who are at the end of the phone. We also have a great team at Hadston House, who are there if you need them.”

Angela Henderson: “I need to thank my two wonderful sons. We are high risk and have been in lockdown. John who lives nearby has been straight round with anything we need and Mark has messaged every day to check on us.”

Jo-Anne Watters: “Mary Scott has been a key worker and is also making cakes pies and looking after the people who can't go out.”

A message from the Editor:

In order for us to continue to provide high quality and trusted local news on this free-to-read site, I am asking you to also please purchase a copy of our newspaper.

Our journalists are highly trained and our content is independently regulated by IPSO to some of the most rigorous standards in the world.

But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. So we need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis.

With the coronavirus lockdown having a major impact on many of our local valued advertisers - and consequently the advertising that we receive - we are more reliant than ever on you helping us to provide you with news and information by buying a copy of our newspaper.
