During the first lockdown, March-May 2020, the Whatsapp group for the street I live on in Manchester was flooded with offers of support and solidarity. It has always been a friendly, kind street, but this year I have found myself particularly grateful for my neighbours.
I decided to collect stories about the street to recognise and celebrate what community means and does in difficult times.
The result is an online book of stories, plus a collection of handmade books exploring themes of history, nature and neighbourliness.
