Yeah it was a real moment. Very successful to by the sounds of it.

Even had fireworks going off by ours.

Didn't know about this until it actually happened. A little surreal wondering what the hell was going on but nice gesture.

Well for those that joined in, a friend who works in ICU said they heard it last night and it made her cry (obviously in a good way) :)

This kind of thing is soooo lovely. I'm a cynical sod at the best of times, and those few doing this stuff for social media 'likes' are somewhat depressing. Regardless, this is such a great gesture and I very much hope that, once this has passed, there will be a new national day to celebrate those amongst us that really count.

Be nice to take the focus off the greedy and selfish for once. Many of the repulsive, six-figure salary types who earn that by being ruthless and treating people like crap. Let's hope there's less tolerance for them...

I posted this elsewhere:

These pricks out 'doing their bit' clapping like idiots on the doorstep. Then off gallivanting around day after day after day, adding to the inevitable burden of the NHS no doubt.

I show my appreciation by doing what I'm told.

So, I'm in two minds about this. Especially when everyone seems to get together after to 'big up' their appreciation of the NHS.

Not everyone gets together, not at all. As per usual there is a small vocal minority who can’t seem to be sensible about this. Don’t let them spoil it for everyone else.

There is no obligation to join in. It’s entirely your choice. We do join in, especially as there are a few NHS workers in our road. We stay sensibly at the end of our driveway and direct it towards our neighbours.

I think we need to include all the other essential workers as well, supermarket staff, factory staff, delivery drivers etc.
At Christmas we tip everybody. Bin men, Postie' gardeners, window cleaners. Usually a tenner, but I said to the Mrs earlier they'll be getting double this year... I'll be doubling up on the tins of sweets for the hospital staff as well :)

It sounds like Ste7en's morons would be congregating somewhere whether or not there was a Thursday night clap, plenty of people are managing to do it sensibly while maintaining social distancing.

Oh, I'm sure they would be. These are the ones who have barely changed their habits since the lockdown began. In and out all day, people visiting. They are renowned for being dicks though. When we first moved in the retired policeman in the cul-de-sac I get on with said "Don't take anything personally. They just don't know how to behave".
