Despite the waves of negative press coverage and violence that have engulfed our town over the last 24 hours, the volunteer response from local families and even children has been truly heart-warming. Local community leaders like Gavin Barwell are using social media sites to coordinate the team clean ups which have so far received a huge turnout and warm response from the public.
Already progress is underway to clean up the town centre in a process that could take several days. Let’s prove to the rioters that whatever they try and destroy, we will rebuild and show them that their senseless actions will never get the better of us. Once again, we should extend our thanks and to our brave emergency services and support the victims of this carnage like the Reeves family to show we are united against mob rule.
