Last week we touched base with Dan and Summer in an effort to keep our DC family connected until such a time that we can all meet safely again soon, in a field somewhere, sometime in the near future.
This week we’re touching base with two more DC regulars, Dave and Jane! Dave and Jane have worked with DC for the past five years and can usually be spotted at Glastonbury, in fancy dress (of course) killing it on shift and giving the young’uns a run for their money!
Not ones to stay sedentary and being lucky enough to live in lovely Cumbria, they’ve spent their time bike riding and ‘wild swimming’ (open water swimming), and with the use of Zoom they’ve managed to stay in touch with family and even celebrated Dave’s 80th Birthday lockdown-style!
Dave and Jane have also been big supporters of the NHS and keyworkers during this difficult time and have led the charge in their street, in fancy dress and face paint, banging drums and adapting the lyrics of “We will rock you” to “NHS we love you” with their neighbours. We honestly expect nothing less from these two.
Not only has this meant getting to know their neighbours in the area a little better, but it’s also inspired them to put on their own ‘social distancing gig’ for the old folks home across the road with neighbours previously unknown to them. The neighbours on the ukulele, and Dave and Jane on the kazoos. You can probably see why Dave and Jane are two of our favourites.
We would love to hear from more of you. If you’d like to share how it is you’ve been keeping busy (though Dave and Jane have provided stiff competition, admittedly) then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Keep safe, everyone.
