A woman was left surprised after a stranger gave her a note out on her walk, making her day.

Tracey Hamnett, 47, was out walking on New Brighton Promenade around 3:45pm for the first time in a few weeks after the cold weather when she was stopped by a young woman.

Tracey said: “This young lady walked up to me. I thought at first she was going to ask for directions, and she just said can I give you this, please?

“She handed me a piece of paper and started skipping off with a nice spring in her step kind of thing.

“She lad lovely long hair, very pretty, in her early twenties.

“I looked at it and read it and said to her, ‘oh my god, that’s so nice. Thank you very much!'”

On the colourful post-it note that was handed to her was written: “In case nobody told you today – you are doing amazing, you are beautiful, you are loved.”

Tracey said: “She turned around and said I just want to spread a little kindness that was it, and she carried on her way handing little notes out to other people.

“It was lovely, and just what we need in the times we’re in at the moment.

“It was nice, and gave me a nice warm fuzzy feeling if I’m being honest.”

Tracey posted the news of the random act of kindness on the Wirral Gossip Facebook group and it received over 500 likes and hundreds of comments of support.

One wrote: “So sweet making someone feel very special lovely kind person very thoughtful xx”.

A second added: “It’s the little things that make you feel good, how nice is that x”.

While a third wrote: “Me and my son got one off her. Really made me smile. Thought it was a beautiful thing to do and could make such a positive impact on anybody who was having a bad day.”

The woman handing out the notes eventually saw the post and replied: “Thank you so much for sharing this! I’m so glad it made your day due to all the negativity with Covid. I thought it would be a nice thing to do to cheer people up as Covid has got all us feeling a bit down!”

Tracey told the Liverpool Echo that she appreciated the notes, adding: “When I used to go for a walk about seven o’clock before I went to work, I’d always try to make the effort to say good morning to someone.

“There’s so many people are walking with their heads down at the moment and it feels a bit glum and and miserable, so it’s just nice to know somebody else is there.”

What an amazing gesture!

Morrisons shoppers upset over ‘intimidating’ Union Jack packaging in the supermarket

Thoughts?

Published

Morrisons use of the Union Jack flag on British products has kicked off a debate online.

It was sparked when a shopper posted a picture of the Union Jack branding on the supermarket’s eggs and butter.

Pictures of the products were posted to Twitter, with the customer writing: “Just back from a trip to Morrisons. Is it just me, or have their butter and eggs always been this… patriotic?”

The post sparked a debate and divided opinion in the comments, with some saying they will boycott the items while others argued it was just marking them as being British products.

Someone replied to the tweet to say: “Very upset by porridge I saw in Morrisons. This flagging everything is very unpleasant and quite intimidating.”

A second added: “Retaliate. I’m no longer buying anything packaged as such. Hurt them through their bank accounts.”

While another replied: “Won’t be buying eggs from Morrisons.”

Some people were confused as to why people were so offended by the Union flag being on British products.

One person said: “I can’t believe you all get triggered over the fact it’s showing we have British products in our stores. You should be proud that it’s cut down on air miles and transport costs and in turn is helpful for the environment. No, you’d rather moan about the national flag.”

A second asked: “They also have the French flag on Brie and Camembert cheeses and the Italian flag on a number of meats. Should we remove them as well? Or is it just because it is the British flag?”

A man trying to make a swift getaway from police ended up getting more than he bargained for.

The suspect ended up with a sore head after smashing into a ‘one way’ sign after his concentration slipped.

The 33-year-old male was attempting to give Greater Manchester Police the slip after stealing a £760 Moschino bag in the city centre.

While he was making off from officers he looked behind him and ended up faceplanting straight into the sign.

He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody to recover from a ‘sore head’.

GMP took to Twitter and Facebook yesterday to share the news, saying that ‘all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery’.

GMP City Centre wrote: “One way to custody… A 33yr old male stole a £760 Moschino hand bag. Whilst making off from officers, he looked behind him & then faceplanted straight into a One Way road sign.

“Male now in custody recovering from a sore head, all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery!”

Ouch!

Today, Monday April 12th, sees stage two of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown come into effect.

As part of this second stage, pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen for outdoor drinking and dining, while places like gyms, salons and hairdressers can also welcome people back.

Non-essential retail can also throw open its doors once again, meaning shops in places like the city centre, Arndale and Trafford Centre can reopen from today.

Huge queues have been forming as people are keen to return to shops after lockdown, with large gatherings of people spotted at the Arndale.

Photos and videos have been posted to social media showing people trying to get in the shopping centre from Market Street, with the Arndale opening at 8am today.

Sean Hansford posted a video to Twitter showing a large group being dispersed from the entrance to the Arndale, with very little social distancing happening.

A security guard asks them to move away and to social distance, but the group initially just congregates nearby.

Later videos show a more orderly queue going down Market Street after Covid marshals managed to organise shoppers, with police also spotted assisting with the queues.

Large queues were also spotted at Primark over at the Trafford Centre, as the popular budget retailer reopened its doors.

Will you be heading out shopping today, or are you waiting until things calm down a bit?
