UPDATE: I was off sick yesterday and had to go get some cold and flu supplies and decided to grab some flowers to put in the lane for the man who’d jumped. When I got there, two people were having a gossip about it and seemed a little embarrassed when I slid by them to place flowers. This morning I walked by to the shop again and someone has put my flowers in water, more bunches have been placed and some cards too.
I remember when I first moved to Newstead, sometimes I felt overwhelmed by how lonely it is to only see other buildings in your horizon. Surrounded by people and so completely alone.
This picture tells me that a community is here after all, and that it does care for its members.
