    June 1, 2020      Audio
    During this period of lock down I was aware that some residents were suffering with extreme isolation, those shielding in particular. Many residents in our area have no access to outside space and I felt their stories needed to be heard, they were able record themselves in their homes safely. Hardip and her young family were already almost 12 weeks in to lock down. Here’s her thoughts. Mandi Knight; Northfleet North Big Local
  • Northfleet Big Local: responses to COVID-19 March to 10th May 2020
    May 19, 2020      Film
    Having chatted to people on my daily walk about and the weekly foodbank it became apparent that some people were struggling with being cooped up in blocks of flats and were starting to feel anxious and some were even scared to go shopping ...so messages of positivity were the next step. People responded to these by writing their own outside their houses. Mandi Knight: Northfleet North Big Local
