Letter: Thank you Milnrow

Date published: 05 March 2018

Dear Editor,

My wife and I were unfortunate victims of the M62 closure last Thursday.

After having to spend several hours in our car (returning from Manchester Airport after holiday), we were subject to a display of overwhelming generosity and humanity from the residents of Milnrow.

The hot drinks, toast and offers of rest facilities were so welcome.

We can only say that in today's society, where self interest rules, we were truly grateful and humbled by such a display of generosity and all dispensed with genuine smiles and sympathy, and all offers of payment refused.

Thank you Milnrow.

You are all a truly outstanding example to us all.

May your actions bring you the peace, happiness, and success your actions deserve.
