Spent a very happy morning being drenched in Tescos car park as the Nailsea churches got together and helped people with their shopping. It was brilliant it was such a wet day as folk were very appreciative of our offers to take their trolleys back to the trolley park.
The feedback from the check-out bag-packers was that Daily Mail readers are very suspicious of any offers of help and elderly women shopping alone buy a lot of alcohol.
The young people I was working with made the time pass by making it a competition. It was fun to see them popping up from behind cars, like meercats out of their holes, to pounce on people.
We also did a fair bit of litter collection when it was quieter. Amazing how those plastic bags get amalgamated into trees.
