Motion text

That this House recognises the selfless work of Ruchazie Parish Church during the covid-19 outbreak and the time that volunteers and parishioners have dedicated to their community; appreciates the volume of support provided to local people including the delivery of hot meals and food parcels to people shielding, people in receipt of universal credit, people made redundant and people unable to access the supermarkets for other reasons; commends the community spirit built throughout the lockdown period and the high levels of community engagement in civic life; welcomes the cheer and happiness that personal interaction brought to many socially isolated citizens at a time of increased loneliness; and thanks all of the volunteers, parishioners and members of the community who gave up their time to make the lives of their neighbours a little brighter during the covid-19 outbreak.
