The #NationsWarmestAppreciation competition – Celebrating Lovely Liz

Today – The #NationsWarmestAppreciation competition

Lockdown has been chock full of heroes, regular people who have helped their community as a whole or as individuals get through.  Some as part of their job, some voluntarily, all with a heart open and willing, I could name so many lockdown heroes and I do believe every one of them should be celebrated

My daughter Lise (aged 13) has been pondering her lockdown heroes as part of her entry into the #NationsWarmestAppreciation competition.  She has chosen our postie, Liz.

and she wrote a little acrostic Postie Poem to explain why.


The #NationsWarmestAppreciation competition




Posting letter and packages through our door every day whilst we’ve been shielding

Often working in the wind and rain, but delivering all the same

She is always friendly, always warm

Takes the time to share a word

Is a burst of sunshine in our lockdown days

Extremely smiley


Lise chose Liz because she has kept us in touch with the outside world whilst we have been isolated and has done it with a bright and beaming smile.

Thankyou lovely Liz.
