Nice gesture!
« on: Mar 23, 2020, 10:38:08 AM »
I went to Sainsbury's this morning, just before 8 am.  7-8am was reserved for NHS staff, 8-9am for over 70s.  The manager and a member of staff were checking, no one was challenging or difficult. There were a few older people who went in at 8 when I did.  I got everything we need.

On the way out everyone who'd been shopping in those time slots was invited to choose a bunch of flowers. They were surplus from mothers' day.  It was a lovely gesture, and it obviously brightened people's day.  I'd had two lovely bouquets yesterday from my children, so I gave mine to our new neighbour who is not feeling too good and is self isolating.

Thank you Sainsbury's.
