Trucks, vans and cars, all sporting flashing lights, convoyed through a Cambridgeshire village to say thank you to the keyworkers on the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.
Manchetts Vehicle Recovery paraded through Burwell on Thursday, April 23 following the nationwide clap for carers, showing their appreciation for our carers.
Without sounding air horns (too much), lighting up the village with their orange flashing beacons, pick-up trucks, vans and even a Land Rover were part of the entourage.
A spokesman for Manchetts said: “Our drivers convoyed through our village at 8pm to say thank you to you all. We didn’t sound air horns but did beep beep with our lights flashing.
“It was to thank the NHS workers and all of our essential keyworkers in Burwell and afar.

“It was so well received with overwhelming thank you’s on Burwell community Facebook.”
