Bernie: How long have you lived in the area?
Liz: 70 years.

Bernie: What’s a fond memory you have of living here?
Liz: Starting with nothing but being able to play and be free. And later, watching the Church and shops grow.

Bernie: Have you seen this community come back from hard times before?
Liz: Yes, slowly. Little by little.

Bernie: What are some things that have helped you through lockdown and what brings you joy?
Liz: Some things that helped were ringing all my friends, and baking and sneaking out to drop cakes to my friends.

Bernie: What does community mean to you? What sort of things are you doing now to stay connected to your community and family?
Liz: Community means a lot to me. I try to get involved and make other nationalities feel welcome and safe.

Bernie: What message do you want to share for yourself and this community in 10 years time?
Liz: I hope that we will still be safe, and that the youth group keeps out of trouble and stays in school and involved in the community.
