Thanks for your kind­ness

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

I would like thro­hgh your col­umns to ex­press my thanks to the in­hab­i­tants of Peter­bor­ough for their kind­ness and con­sid­er­a­tion.

As a very el­derly per­son, un­able to walk very far not carry heavy loads, I use a buggy to get to and around the shops.

I have fre­quently had pedes­tri­ans ex­cus­ing them­selves when they re­alise I am be­hind them.

Yet to me it’s their pri­or­ity - feet be­fore wheels on pave­ments and in shops.

In shops, I am often asked by fel­low shop­pers if I need any help - get­ting things from the shelves, load­ing and un­load­ing at the check­out. Tesco Metro staff, in Broad­way, are also very thought­ful.

In the park ev­ery day I greet ev­ery­one ir­re­spec­tive of age, race, eth­nic­ity, be­lief and I am par­tic­u­larly touched when young peo­ple beat me to it and call out a cheery ‘hello’ Name and ad­dress
