A community is honouring an accidental hero, for his valiant efforts, to support his neighbours during social distancing.
With his heralded golf club closed for the foreseeable, Ian Napton like many, was faced with a daunting void in his social calendar. With this in mind, his quick thinking wife Gillian suggested, that they ‘embark on studying and practising daily tantric sex.’
Responding swiftly to his spouse, Napton rapidly set about landscaping his garden and embarking on dormant DIY projects.
Amused, Gillian confided, ‘I’ve never seen him move so speedily off that sofa. Within seconds, the TV was off and he was hacking back the herbaceous borders.’
Napton’s selfless deeds have extended to his wider community. Determined, he informed us he has, ‘no intention of stopping’, until he is ‘safely back at work.’
So far, his accolade of achievements includes: mowing seventeen lawns, painting three sheds and laying two patios, as well as constructing a picnic table and a three-tiered fort, for his neighbour’s tortoise Bob.
Next week, Napton plans to deliver meals on wheels and refurbish the community centre.
