Farmers rallied to show enthusiastic support for NHS and other front-line carers in Doddington on Thursday evening,

Tractors from around the area descended on Doddington Court retirement complex and created a cacophony of tooting horns as part of the weekly Clap4Carers.

Drivers honked their tractor horns – not quite in unison but their hearts if not their timings – captured the heart of a community lending its support to our NHS and care worker heroes,

Many of the residents looked out, smiling and clapping enthusiastically.

Doddington Court provides a range of flats and communal facilities for the the over 60s.

It has, says Sanctuary Housing who run it, everything to “offer comfort, independence and peace of mind”.

And a team of carers now recognised for their amazing work in these difficult and challenging times.
