A Cedar Avenue resident said "We have an amazing bunch of lovely residents here on Cedar Avenue. We have organised street parties, decorated our houses on Halloween and lit up the street over Christmas.The real community spirit came into action during the pandemic.Those shielding were checked on, weekly shops were made and a weekly gift was given to show they are not alone. If anyone needed anything from garden items to flour a resident would always offer.With a Paramedic, nurse and physiotherapist dealing with Covid 19 patients we clapped for them. To win this competition would be amazing and the posters for the streets would be a constant reminder of what we all went through and the sacrifices we all made during this Pandemic and not to forget that we should continually be kind and show support for each other. Therefore, your vote will be mean more than a vote to the residents of Cedar Avenue!"
