Community spirit

Section: 
Letter

Kindness, togetherness and charitable deeds to others are what make a community a community.

 

For instance, the Bervie Women’s Institute gave of themselves by offering a donation to the Paddy Walker House.

 

The site of this house and tavern is very special - showing that life and life events in 2016 in many ways has not really changed from years ago. Don’t we owe it to the memory of Paddy Walker, his family, the people who saved it from being torn down and those who meticulously resurrected it again?

 

Other organizations have shown, in both large and small ways, their pride in helping others. If this isn’t community spirit, what is?
